I'm not sure I completely understand your suggestion (I got most of it.) So you're saying in addition to the star system (for # of posts), the year stars (for number of years of membership), and the thanks system (for number of thanks given and received), you'd like to see more stuff added or are you talking about a complete overhaul? Or am I way off?
My post was a bit scrambled wasn't it
Ok.. I suppose A badge would be ideal, like when members reaches a certain point with either gratitude/points & length of service, so for eg; joe bloggs = posts 500 = semi skilled. joe bloggs = 750 posts = skilled and so on but would have to be like useful posts, or it can be just given as a reward from moderators for putting in a great job on certain posts or topics etc.
It does still seem a bit scrambled doesn't it
Let me know what you think.
and please anyone feel free to jump in and give your opinions & idea's
also to make a bit of space for the suggestion i just made
we could lose the title thanks given and join date as maybe these things would more suited in the profile page?
