    Since we have recent visitors now, we are obviously counting profile hits, at least in a basic way
    This leads me to an expanded / auxiliary idea with trophies/awards.

    Run automatic "contests" that reset every week:
    "Most unique profile hits this week"
    "Most post-likes received this week"
    "Most gallery-list received this week"

    It should be reasonably easy to automatically extract the data for the last week to award the "trophy".
    You could even feature the "race" on the main page...
    add a static gallery strip with the top 10 profiles in each "race" at any given time...

    At the end of Sunday, winner gets their "trophy" assigned, perhaps feature them for the next week as "last week's winner", and reset the stats to run the contest for the next week.

    This might encourage users to upload content and provide some bragging rights for the more popular users; They could display their "most likes of the week (x10)" badge on their profile.

    Also, I chose/suggested these three "contests" intentionally, as they require that the user post useful content and have it viewed by others. If you offer a "trophy" for "most posts", or something of the like, we'll likely end up with users flooding the forums with useless posts...
