Let us mark the most interesting posts


Time and again I’ve heard cautionary tales about how listservs lose
their value and fun when they get too big. As someone who used to read
much of ruby-talk and now exclusively uses the forum, I have found it
harder to find the interesting stuff. It’s great that you have the
number of replies listed as a visual cue to which topics are best. But
I think it’d be really better to have metadata about individual posts

I know the 1-5 stars metaphor is tired and inane, but some way to
register a positive ranking would be cool. Be it a check box, a field
where we could input numbers, or a tagging feature, it could be nice to
have a better way to dig look through the vast archives here and learn a
lot real fast.
