    Points System

    I propose the following - that you should be able to start a thread which is a question.

    Whoever answers your question the best you should be able to give them full or partial marks for their answer. And they would get CW points based on how you rated their response. To keep it simple you can only award one respondent full marks and multiple respondents partial marks. As soon as someone is awarded full marks you can't award any more partial marks.

    I reckon it would lead to higher quality responses to questions and better conversations -

    One person once asked who is the fastest bowler you have faced?
    One person said Geoff Thompson - clearly he should been rewarded for this answer as there are few people quicker (if anyone)

    Or in the coaching forum - how do I bowl a leg cutter
    Someone could post an informative response and be rewarded.

    What say you?

    Considering we get 0 points at the moment for posting utter rubbish, and would be rewarded 0 points for posting utter rubbish as replies in these threads, how will it improve post quality?

    I think what Hurricane refers to are rep points. Another forum I use has rep points and I like them, since it's always a nice fuzzy feeling to get a point or two with a comment next to it. Narcissists like myself can't get enough of them.

    I'll point James in the direction of this thread and we'll see what he thinks.

    Here's an example of how they work;

    And I'm finding it very amusing this man is a apparently traitor for exposing the Granai airstrike and that other video. I'm more worried about the US murdering innocents in a country they shouldn't be invading in the first place.

    Yes. I'm not sure how or why exactly, but he did. It used to be Got_Spin.
