I would to suggest a bigger star ratings on the forums that will give a more wider and more consistant rating of a thread. Instead of 5 stars, it will be X out of 10 and it could work like IMDB's rating system.

Would be great if it was used properly. I don't even think it's all that important seeing as I see threads that are helpful and marked 1 star and others marked 5 stars and is a derailed thread.
If we had the numbers voting like on IMDB it would be more or less accurate. Reputation/Likes does the same sort of thing and can mark a topic "Popular" if the OP has received enough likesGo to the full post
