Just added a new modification to the board:
The intent for this is to further seek out and promote user-rated content. It is certainly not about an individual popularity contest.
You can now rate any topic in any forum here (one vote per user per topic). As the votes add up across the hundreds of posts here -- rated high or low by you alongside any other member -- we'll add in a better display of the live and ongoing results.
If it's not useful, we may pull it, but I think it's worth a try.
