( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

In an attempt to spark a better idea, what if we consider borrowing an idea from (Heaven help me) /.? Namely, the ability to flag nodes with certain attributes, such as "Insightful," "Funny,", "Underrated," "Overrated," "Interesting," "FAQ", and so on?

If pursued, I'd see this as:

  • Being a Level Power (say Level 6 or 7, to provide cues to other senior members that this may be a node needing extra attention).

    The idea here being that it should only be available to folks who've been around long enough to fairly assess the "properties" of a node.

  • Briefly summarized in Index pages underneath the posters name. For example:

    Choose a maximum for Rep
    on May 24, 2001 at 17:37
    2 replies by lemming
    Interesting

    Note that this only requires the addition of a <BR> tag and a description.

  • Summarized in threaded views after the post date.

    For example:

    Re: Choose a maximum for Rep
    by chipmunk on May 24, 2001 at 18:34, Insightful, Underrated

    (Apologies for to chipmunk for borrowing his node for example purposes. No offense intended.)

  • Specifically summarized only to the poster when viewed in its own window, again in the header, e.g.:

    Re: Re: Choose a maximum for Rep

    by chipmunk on May 24, 2001 at 20:28
    Insightful (3), Underrated (2)
  • If done properly, this add more information about the community's reaction to a node, as well as more drugs for the addicted.

    I realize that this is a very ambitious proposal, one needing further analysis and a lot of work to implement. However, it might be a workable solution.

    Note: Please realize that I offer this as a possible solution to a problem that I do not believe exists. I do not think the current voting system is broken. I simply think it's not being used wisely.

    Thoughts? Feedback?
