    Would it at all be possible to get a reputation system for this forum?

    +1, etc?

    Thanks.

    Thank you for asking.

    While it has been considered in the past, we don't have any immediate plans to move to a reputation system. We've found that good information tends to propagate in the forum and bad information tends to be identified and corrected. As such, we don't currently see any advantages to adding a rep system.

    Thank you for your time.

    How about a "LIKE" button? Many times I enjoy a post but have no comments... just a little reward for a helpful post.

    Seconded. If not rep, then perhaps a way to ID good posts with a metric. Liking, 5 stars, golden star, etc. After all, you can only QFT so many times before people start getting tired of the wall of text.
