I was thinking more from the advice point of view, if individual posts were rated, you'd know (as a newbie) how valuable the advice is. Therefore, in any problematic situation you might find, you can quickly eliminate the not so good answers, when you're new, everything seems plausible. When you've been around a while and read debates etc, you learn those you'd trust for advice and those to take with a pinch of salt.

If you can convince me that this would have a positive effect on the forum then please do... And I will put it to the site owners.

I am always sceptical on things like this as it usually turns into a competition on who can get the most ratings.

So pros and cons please.
IMHO:
Pro's:
As above, you can weed out good advice from not so good advice,
You can rate comments on the fun factor/humour in them.

Con's:
People will get offended for either of the above reasons,
It could turn into a competition as you said.

So I've cancelled out mine with 2 of each!!
