Mountainbuzz Site Improvement Idea
What if we were able to up/down vote threads? Location on the main page would be some combination of recent activity and relevance to the community.
The rationale is simple, the threads that are more relevant to a larger portion of the users would get more up-votes and thus stay on the main page longer despite not being quite as active. A very democratic solution to some of the content issues this site has.
An Example, the Poudre Gnarrows race thread has great content (IMHO) and the race still hasn't happened, but the thread is buried on the main page by 12 rafting gear threads. And no, I don't want to filter out all rafting gear threads because I am a rafter and some are relevant. I would simply like to have one meager up-vote on some and one meager down-vote on others to slightly influence what conversations stick around and which quickly vanish from the main page.
Worth a try? Feasible?
