How has your Quora participation or behavior changed, if at all, since the elimination of the “Most Viewed Writers” listing on profile pages?

Less gamified motivation to write on topics that I was just outside of MVW status for (like I dunno, Language or Etymology or Latin). Slightly less motivation to write as a result, although the A2As keep coming in.

Slightly less motivation to follow users, because I can’t tell from a mouseover what they are into.

There was never any indication of MVW on the Request menu listing of users anyway, so that has little impact.

Much less of a feeling of community with other MVWs in a topic (that I have to hunt to find), which did give me added motivation to write.
