    I know i am annoying bla bla bla bla and it wont happen cause I want it. but still ill post this:

    Go see these forums: http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=698793

    THIS IS NO SPAM!

    To the left you see the ranks people can acquire.

    you can be named an "Expert in this area" wich is pretty cool! of course there are moderators and an other thing are points. I have no idea how you get points put i think it has to do with how many threads got solved by you.
    If you get the "Magical answer" the answer that solved the problem. Also the author can close the thead if he thinks it is unnecesairy to continue the discussion or if his preblem is solved!

    I just think this are some pretty cool feutures that seem to work on a pretty proffesional forum! (hp). This might be a bad idea knowing that on iptf there are mostly teenagers but still...

    Thats it. o yeah 1 last thing. Please dont ban me for that link. Noone will leave iptf to go spam some HP forum...

    But people may abuse it like they did the REP system. Starting a thread, then they find there friends who posted on it and give them the point. :/

    but what happens if a member posts the answer before u by a second. That means they would get the points meaning it would be really unfair. I like it as it is

    i want a rating not based on how many posts i have, but the rep system did not work. maybea rep system for moderators to rate us only. like if we have a helpful post or report somone.....

    How is that not fair? The person who posted it first deserves the point.

    and I like this idea, maybe it could be modified a little for our preferences, though.

    I would like to see the old rep system back, but with negative rep disabled.

    Me, Parm289 and some others already had an idea way better than this :\

    Perhaps he or I should dredge it back up.

    Bgizzle is currently on vacation, but those suggestions will definitely be strongly considered when he returns.
