On BR you can be friend with yourself, so why not being able to thumb yourself up? :)

The only thing you can't do is vote yourself. BR is different, and that difference is what makes it cool ;)

I think it should either be removed, or add the ability to easily see who liked the post.

If not, people will just abuse it which will ultimately give ratings no actual merit

Another idea would be to use the ratings to categorise the users on here, for example:

  • 0-50 - Noob

  • 50-100 - Super User

  • 100-250 - Extreme User

  • 250-500 - Master

  • 500-1000 - Bucky's Assistant

@robert I'm not sure what you meant by your posts. I wasn't calling anyone a noob, just putting my idea across to you guys that we could have a ranking system using ratings! :)

@linguist Another unnecessary, and unrelated, comment by you. Please talk about the actual post people are writing. Just to be clear, this forum section is called "Site Suggestions," and I believe this is one... In general, I do agree with you though.

Ahhh, I see what you mean now. Yes, that's a good point, and leads me to this revised version of the idea: Maybe we can get ratings/points for answering someones problem in a question & answers section of this forum, that would base your category by knowledge, as you mentioned.
