Democratic Deliniation of Helpful Members

Perhaps the infraction cards should be supplemented with a positive poit system as well.

To augment the 'infraction cards' and their intentions, I propose that members who spend more time assisting others be credited with doing so.

Anyone member who reads a post and finds it 'helpful' should be able to credit the poster. These 'points' should be displayed.

There are many functions this system may serve; since they are democratic, it will be left to others to determine what those functions might be.

It may help those who attempt to post helpful information determine whether they have been successful or not.

I've seen such features at other forums. It might be worth a try here.

There's a "hack" available for vBulletin that allows members to thank or be thanked by other members. Several forums use it.
The problem I have with adding hacks like this is the issue of keeping them updated as vBulletin itself is updated.
Too bad this is not a standard feature that can be turned on or off.
