That is what IOWA was suggesting, not me. It would also be tied to the quality of the posts (I thought that I said that at least twice in my comment.)

There might need to be some improvements made to the thanks/rating system as it often seems that it becomes a measuring stick for the popularity of a post vs the helpfulness of it. Well, if someone posts wildly popular things and people are drawn to the forums because of that, I guess you could reward that sort of thing (even selling Lady Gaga's stuff pays the bills for some people.)
