    Featured Post

    We all know by now that when a question has been answered in a thread, the thread shouldn't be locked or deleted, because other people might have the same problem and either need the specific answer, or has a variance of the problem and needs to ask followup questions.

    However, some threads are very long. My first idea is that the OP (creator of the thread) can tick a box by a post which says "This is the right answer" or "Feature"

    What this then does, is put a copy of the post DIRECTLY underneath post 1, and maybe the background of the post is a highlighted yellow colour, so that people who view the thread can get an instant answer. Multiple posts can be selected if there are more than one solution.


    Member of the Month/Member of the Year

    Every month, the moderators choose a member who has made a significant contribution to the community in the past month. That user then gets their username on a page dedicated to these do-gooders, which will be featured somewhere on the site (possibly front page?)

    This also highlights a previous idea that's been brought up on the forum: Badges. If we had the badges system, where mods award badges to users for their achievements, helpfulness on the site, etc, we could make a "MotM" and "MotY" badge too, which can be displayed proudly on your profile

    I like the answer underneath the original post idea, which would help a lot.

    Solid ideas. The first idea would be quite helpful, and hopefully encourage searching.

    I like the first idea. Not so sure about the second one, would be hard for you guys to keep up with for a years time.

    The MoTM, MoTY had been rejected outright before, with the conclusion being too much spam.
    I had made a "Question" thread suggestion before too. bgizzle said he's holding off on vBull mods until the new version is released.

    Also like the Featured Post idea... much like Yahoo Answers?

    Not sure about MoTM/Y could create competition between people.. seems like another rep episode. But then again it may not be.
