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.
