I was going to post in another thread, but seeing as this would have been veering even more off-topic than the thread already was, and the thread is about threads veering off-topic, I thought  I'd better start a new one ;-)


I do like the idea of being able to give a post an "up" vote.
A down vote option only encourages colliseum type behaviour (you know, looking for blood etc.), as people have said already. But I often miss the option to give a very casual +1 to a post - good reccomendation, nice retort, whatever.

I wont lose any sleep about this one, and am not even sure it's a good idea, but I still miss it - often enough too.

There are reputation mods for different forums including SMF, I have used them on forums with varying success (members used it meaningfully and not)

^ I don't think so much a reputation mod, but something that you can say that this post is a good post.  It can also help mouser in making the newsletters, bringing attention to posts the community thinks are great.

As far as helping me make the newsletters, it's true it would.

However, we already have the ability to mark threads as rated from 1 to 5 stars -- it's just only used for personal use.  You can see the rating menu if you click the word "MARK" on the top right of each thread page.

I suppose you could add social networking features (such as Facebook Like buttons etc.)
