I was just hanging out on a favourite BlackBerry forum and they implemented a new feature that I thought was really cool. It's called trust levels. First time I've seen it, so thought I'd bring it up here. Perhaps JD and the other mods would look into implementing this?

If you're looking for details, check out pinstack.com. When you look at a posting, look for the trust level underneath the author's name. Click on the trust level for an explanation of how their system works.

It would be cool to see that here.

I've seen similar systems for rating individuals. Unless it's administered by the moderators, it has the potential for abuse. But since there hasn't been much (any?) other kinds of abuse in the forums (yet, knock wood) maybe that wouldn't be a problem. Anyway, I think it's probably a good idea.

I've seen that work in other places too. I don't know if it would work on these pre-coded forum sites (I've never seen them on a pbb site). One thing I liked about the Craigslist forums was the rating feature. It has the potential for abuse, but it cut down on some responses because people could use point to indicate whether they agree with you or not. I found it a helpful tool to see if I was on the right track with some ideas, even if people weren't responding...

v-bulletin has some nifty stuff that I miss when I'm using phpBB, but since it's not free... it's not as common. There may be some plugins availalble that do similar things in phpBB. Most of the forums I'm on, this seems like a bad idea, as most of the information is much more subjective. But I think it could be very usefull for something like this.
