Shall DVDtalk follow FatWallet's footstep by giving each thread a proper rating?

I've been on DVDtalk and Fatwallet forums for many years. I'm curious to know if DVDtalk is going to apply user's rating to each thread in order to differentiate the value. I myself am all for it because it can help me pick up the most valuble information in the forum and save my time as well.

Let's vote, shall we?

we run a different forum software than fatwallet, don't think we could implement that feature here, and rating threads is generally useless imo..

Wow, pilot going into action. that's some stealth speed if I've ever seen it.

I doubt it really applies since it's a bit different here compared to the hotness or rating of a bargin.

Something awful has had this for a long time now also. I doubt it's really worth the trouble here unless we can give Dalvin's thread an automatic 1.

That's my opinion also. Though I rarely visit FW they just appear to add clutter without serving any real purpose.

Nope. It would be useless, as it is at FW.

I've seen this on several boards, and it serves no purpose other than ego stroking.

i find it useful in some fatwallet threads that are 50 pages long, if you use a rating filter you can get rid of a lot of the crap. but with the excellent modding here we don't have that problem

I was on the forums as a silent observer for many years and didn't become an active member until last year. Does it answer your question?

Be gentle guys, it's Christmas. I'm just curious to know other people's opinion. And there's nothing I'm putting against the forum. I love this forum very much and that's why I'm giving some suggestions trying to make it better to help people. It's up the forum mods to accept or deny it. Please don't have any bad thoughts on me.

If you people think it is waste of time, Mods please close this thread.

I don't want to cause any trouble. What I am on this forum is mainly to seek good deals and share the deals I found. If you some of you have read my posts before, you should get a picture on me. If you don't know me, you don't have the right to judge me just because you don't like this thread.
