How about a point system (4 posts)

    Just thought it would be nice if there was a point system or something where we could give people who help us points. That way, people could feel that there is some kind of benefit to helping others and it would also establish who the people are on this forum who really know their stuff. I am one of those who needs a lot of help and I'd just like to give props to the people that do take the time to help me.

  2. Heh, while I would kinda love that, I think that it's unneeded :) the folks who are gonna say thank you will, and from my experience, those moments make you feel great. They keep you going as a helper.

    I know that I learn by helping others, so (especially with tougher issues) when I am able to walk through an issue with someone, and come out the other side with a solution, that's plenty of reward.

    A thank you is nice too! A fair amount of people don't actually take the time to thank someone who has helped them. So unfortunately with a point system type thing.... the people who don't take the time to come back and thank you also wouldn't take the time to come back and give you a point or whatever.

    I do think it's a fun/cool idea......

    There's also the reverse problem - people who you try to help but who then blame you when they don't get it right.
