I would like a forum-rating feature, where users can rate posts with +1 or -1, that's it. Simple and powerful. What this would allow, e.g. if rating < -threshold, send post-author email that their post will be auto-deleted in one-week, if they do not edit/improve their post. So the post-author would have one week time to improve their old post. If not, it would auto-disappear from the forum. Simple and the house would be auto-clean, or not?
To make it even a gaming-fun experience in the forum, the deleted-posts negative points would be written as positive-points among the FIRST 50 -1 raters, into their cleaning-activity-account .
Somehow using +1/-1 ratings, forum activity, quality ratings could be turned into a gaming-experience, maybe, any already existing solutions known?
Update: Even more fun, based on threshould "one week" could be dynamic instead. e.g.
rating < -50: 7 days
rating < -100: 6 days
rating < -200: 5 days
rating < -400: 4 days
rating < -800: 3 days
rating < -1600: 2 days
rating < -3200: 1 day
rating < -6400: 12 hours
rating < -12800: 6 hours
Every post would have a mini-plot below, about its rating-curve development. Each post would be like a share or something, hey I like this idea.
A sparkline plugin for phpbb would be great for this: <!-- m -->http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparkline
