Forum Based Point system

Has the sabayon team considered using a point based forum system before? you know where points are awarded to a user when someone helps resolve another users queries?

nope

The community shouldn't be a competition, everyone helps in the ways they can and when they can. That is what is important. Just because someone has 10000 points does mean the guy with 10 points isn't equally important.

Its not about that, its more about encouraging participation. Trying to reward (in some futile way) peoples efforts.

I know, but it's what it turns into tho, even post count will cause issues within a community.

Fair point, it was just a suggestion.
