Hi, not sure if this is the right place to post this, and I appreciate someone's probably thought of it before, but just as an idea;
Y'know the way when you're in the forum adventures section and you see someone's suggestion, you post a reply with "2nd/3rd/12980748370th" or whatever that number may be. Obviously this is an awful lot of practically contribute-less posts, so, as an idea, why don't we have buttons?
On each post would be a button. Before anyone clicks on it, it would say something like "click to 2nd". When someone clicks on it, it would change to "This post/suggestion has been 2nd'd". The next time someone clicks it, it'd change to "3rd'd" and so on and so forth. Aside from the obvious people trying to break the buttons (Hey, what happens if we get everyone to click the button?), it doesn't seem like a bad idea to cut down on useless posts.
If there's no record on a person's page of the number of "2nd"s they get, it won't turn into a popularity contest either.
As I said, this is just an idea. I have no idea what it would take to implement, so if it's too hard for whatever reason, fine. Again, just an idea. Thank you for reading.
