How about a points system for solving people problems on the board? Kind of like *cough, cough* Experts-Exchange.

I like this idea. Too often threads get cluttered with people not actually contributing anything to a person's request. I've seen this work well other places, not just EE.
Can provide examples if required, but thought it better not to advertise other forums on Ozzu. ;)

What would be done with said points? There's really no point in it (no pun intended) unless they're worth something.

I've grown to be quite fond of the reputation system Vbullitin has. Not soo much the level indicators that are usually shown in posts, what I like is the area in your profile/members-page where you can read comments about posts you've made that people can leave anonymously.

I'm not shy about leaving my opinion, but I used to be so I know how it is.
I enjoy getting feedback, even if I don't know who it's from.

i like the idea a lot. even if the points wouldn't be worth anything material. I think a lot of people would feel good just to see their contributions recognised, and it would certainly be useful to those receiving advice to have a way of judging how valid that advice is.....

I was just thinking, this could be a good idea idea also for website reviews. I know alot of people get tired of spammers in there, so I thought perhaps there could be some way to make it so a user has to have a certain amount of reputation points before they can ask for a review?

Actually, I think that would work a treat :D

That's why I don't give reviews any more ... I hate that BS ... I know I give good reviews but I just hate getting an email reply and then seeing some one-liner someone just put in there to have their own site for review ...

For website reviews, instead of points, perhaps the person who started the thread can "accept" or "reject" a review of their own site, thus ensuring that someone can only ask for a website review once they've made three "accepted" reviews. Not only would this lighten the load on the moderators, but it would also help give new members an idea, by example, of what an acceptable review is.

Granted, I'm sure an unwanted side effect of this would entail members rejecting reviews just because they contain criticism that they don't want to hear, but overall I think it could work.

Well by accepting reviews the reviewer would kinda be earning good reputation points, so its basically the same thing as I suggested?

It could be set up so that points are awarded by users who have a certain number of points themselves, rather than just the reviewed.

that's a great idea. there's little in this world that annoys me more than a 'gud work' or 'your colors are bad' in the website reviews section. I try to give useful reviews whenever I have something to say, and don't tend to check the quality of the three requisite reviews given, but I do sometimes get exasperated looking through all the useless comments............

it's true that some people could 'reject' negative reviews, although honestly most of the responses from site authors to objective criticism - even if overwhelmingly negative - tend to be grateful and accepting, as long as the criticism is constructive and polite.
