    1. Member can vote topic (HotTemp or ColdTemp) - (no u-turn)
    2. No Vote (nothing display)
    3. Vote Hot = number of member voted = love this topic.
    4. Vote Cold = number of member voted = boring topic, etc.

    So it will be like Digg! Awesome feature me thinks.

    I also liked the idea I read from another thread. It's about a Digg feature that should be implemented in the forums here. IIRC it's about before making a topic. Before you make a topic, you can put tags to check if there is already an existing one.

    I expect a staff member's response...

    it may have the opposite effect if the question asked by the op is something that may annoy most (e.g. a question that has already been answered) but has A+ answers. Most may percieve the topic to be bad and therefore n00bs in particular may create a similar topic etc. having not bothered to read the thread

    the opposite may also occur with a different situation of course.

    I don't like it. It probably wouldn't get used very much.
