We have given our readership the ability to rate posts made on BT based on a five star scale. While the content of our membership is generally very good, this system will allow the readership to identify the best posts. We have put in place measures to prevent abuse but of course there are always ways to abuse the system. Fortunately, we have also put in place methods to detect abuse :)

What is the point of this system?? Not that I don't like it, but i'm unaware of an endgame.

Most forums die when a majority of the readers and members lose interest, and a small group of diehards are left talking to (or past) each other on topics that evoke neither curiosity nor debate.

I, therefore, applaud the rating concept as a mechanism for ensuring the longterm viability of the forum. I just hope "biggie" is not one of the screened raters :)

It also has the nice little side effect of increasing the usage of the BT Member bar, and giving credit for the true gold of the BT world. :)

Great addition, glad to see it.
