forum user-help system

by tkoomzaaskz » Wed Aug 04, 2010 3:51 pm

Is there a possibility to add the following feature to the new symfony forum:
Each time a problem is raised and replies are posted, the author of the question can mark posts of other users as helpful (I'm sorry but I don't know the English name for that system, by the way - what is that?); when showing user profile it's displayed how many time a user has helped other people? I think it would not take too long to do such mechanism...

You mean some kind of rating system? There is an PHPBB plugin http://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/thanks_for_posts/, but I don't know how good it is.

I am not sure whether this is something useful though - Google groups have this feature but at least on the symfony group it seems to be rarely used.

Yep, exactly - something like that.
