    I was wondering if anyone had thought about of using thanks to push better articles to the top? (Maybe freshness + # of thanks)

    Forum
    - Thread 1 (100 thanks / updated hour ago)
    - Thread 2 (1000 thanks / updated 3 days ago)
    - Thread 3 (15 thanks / updated 2 hours ago)

    Also it would be nice to comment threads, where instead of having reading all the comments in a thread to find one response to a specific comment it just shows all responses below. Comments that are most useful are pushed to the top.

    Main thread message
    > Comment 1 (thanked 10 times)
    > Comment 2 (thanked 5 times)
    >> RE: Comment 2
    > Comment 3 (thanked 1 time)
    > Comment 4 - ect (thanked no times)

    I think this would help people get answers quicker and not have to ask the same questions over and over.

    Not a web developer but I think this could be accomplished with existing data.

    Oh, excellent idea, let 's give people a serious incentive to abuse the thanks button. Do you think we should also have a section in the marketplace for thanks bots? I can already see the titles "Iron Man / Hulk / Fantastic 4 - BHW thanks spam bot - Make your thread a virtual sticky - $$$$$" :D

    Fine. I still think a comment thread would work, then I dont have to read 8 pages to see a response to the question I want.
