Ever read the best of Craigslist? I think if you code so that it takes like 15 folks clicking on a symbol under the post like the exlamation mark or the + sign puts it in the hall of shame that would work, for any post or comment.
That was going to be my question. How should this be implemented? Point me to sites that do something similar.
We have one example:
Now I'm checking to see if other sites that I visit do something similar.
Is a "Hall of Fame" the same as a bunch of people "liking" or "favoriting" a thread?
If so, view the bottom of the post that starts a thread here. You should see a "like" link. The text for this link used to read "save," and it has existed for years.
If you click on your username, you will see a link about "favorite articles." Click that to see what threads you favorited or liked or whatever the term is suppose to be. On this page, you can also unlike or unfavorite a thread.
I use the like/save/favorite feature to bookmark threads for future reference.
Would the "Hall of Fame" simply be a list of the most liked threads, similar to what MetaFilter does? Can the existing "like" feature mentioned above work now, or do you envision something else?
Is a "Hall of Shame" a separate function and list, or is it included with the HOF?
Linecrosser mentioned using it for comments and the post that starts a thread. Is that the intention? If so, that's fine.
Note the "flag" link for the thread post. Flagging a comment is done by clicking on the barely noticeable exclamation point to the left of the "posted by" line under a comment.
If possible, I'd like to use existing functions.
