Not a different idea, just an expansion of the current trophy points. What is the purpose of trophy points? Is it to reward members, kind of like a game, or is it to show stature of members who are contributing to the community, rewarding those with trophy points who contribute more?
If a member creates a thread that is popular which has many views and replies (whether good or bad) does it not generated more traffic and subsequently more membership for the site? Does more traffic and membership create more advertising revenue to support the site? I was just thinking that creating popular threads should have a few points attached to it when it reaches either a certain amount of replies or views (maybe starting at 10,000 views or 1000 replies).
Obviously nobody has commented or liked my suggestion, so I'm assuming nobody else agrees or nobody cares. Just a thought.
