    It'd be great if users of the forum could vote on the best answer within the thread. Then the comment with the most upvotes would be denoted by a color or something. Sort of like how Stack overflow handles their answers.

    Why? How would that help? If that's what floats your boat, there's always http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/ and http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/wordpress

    Exactly, I've found myself using those resources more these days than the WordPress forums. For me it quickly shifts your attention to the correct answer. For the WordPress forums, it's like reading a story trying to find out which solution works. There are often many replies that are misunderstood or just plain wrong.

    My opinion, guess it's not yours. Curious as to why you think it's a bad idea?

    It would put me off from posting if I had to compete to help people out.

    That's a very good point. It wouldn't exactly encourage people to start helping out.

    Fair enough.
