does anyone here think it woudl be a good idea to install a reputation system so that good posts and good work could be acknowledged? I think that this would foster a sense of trying to improve posts and write up interesting things...

for those who don't know, the way this works is simple. when you write a post, there is a button in section of each post in the thread to add reputation. this is contributed to the user's reputation, which builds up over time. this allows users who frequently post interesting/well-written posts to be acknowledged publicy by the forum community for their hard work.
