Let us mark the most interesting posts


#1

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
too.

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.
