I have noticed that some members have several thousand forum post but some post are just yes/no or even !? answers.
A members rating system is my answer. A five star rating system for members who give great advice.
there should be a box at the bottom when you answer a topic that you can click on to if you think that they've been helpful.(one click per topic) then you could get a star rating with 50,100,200,500 and 1000 clicks.
just thought it might make things a be more interesting. can you tell its my day off, way to much time to myself.....
