If this has been discussed, previously, just ignore.
I just read what I considered to be a fine thread in the Minor League Forum ( re the Reds 2 latest Latin signees
doing well in ST). Upon completition I wanted to give
"rep" to the thread content, some constructive, divergent
povs regarding base-running, etc.
In the old system rep had unintended consequences
when focused on thread authorship.
If rep were given to and accumulated on the threads themselves, independent of the thread author, and not given on replys, would it not be useful in evaluating
thread content, style, interaction, etc?
