"Wow, thanks for your awesome plug-in! Post something here so I can give you some force."
While the idea and the appreciation are certainly commendable, this is actually an improper use of the post rating system. It kind of defeats the purpose of the whole system, which is to enable users to quickly find informative and helpful POSTS.
So my suggestion is this: Modify the plug-ins rating system that is currently in place, in which you can rate a plug-in from 0 to 5 stars, so that your rating of the plug-in transfers a corresponding number of force tokens to the creator of the plug-in. If you rate a plug-in at 5 stars, 5 of your force tokens go to the user who built the plug-in. This would give everybody a specific means to show their appreciation and reward the plug-in creators for their efforts, without messing up the post rating system.
What do you guys think?
