I think a post rating would be helpful as I said in my initial reply.
Think I'm the other way round Would be happy to rate an overall thread - we do have some crackers Wonder if rating posts would eliminate the friendly banter, which is a bonus to the viewer

Corr you lot don't want much do you

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.

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.

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!!

I can cancel out your first pro... Anyone can write a post and anyone can rate a post... Therefore somebody could say great picture... Someone could rate that post... But does that make that a post with good advice?

Sorry, but I don't see the point in rating each post, I'm quite happy with a written reply, I think I prefer that.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference!

I think I'll take the serenity and wisdom on this topic!
