Here are a couple ideas I had for the site.

Why not award force points for films in the cinema? like maybe after a month when they aren't eligible for the top 10 anymore, award them points according to their film score. For instance: If their film has a 4 star rating, then award them 40 force.

Also

I think it would be very useful if we were able to browse the forums based on post ratings, that way people could easily see what have been considered the most helpful posts.

Those are some pretty good ideas.razz I think it would be cool to be able to search by post ratings.

Good ideas, and they've been discussed multiple times in the past, but I think for the film idea, there needs to be a maximum amount of force awarded, and probably only to films rated 3.5 or higher. That way people don't flood the cinema with crappy test shots just to get 10 force every time.

Great ideas!

I have a suggestion too:

Wouldn't it be nice if you could sort the member list by country?
Then it would be easier to find someone that comes from the same country as you and maybe not lives very far from you.

hmmm, I think 2.5 or higher would be better, technically 2.5 is average. Also, I think that your own vote shouldn't count toward getting any force
