Don't you think it would be cool if this site had badges or achievements?
I would like to see some of the senior members of the community here at Ask.com be recognizable except by name, especially for new members.
So here's how it would work:
When you get 100 helpful thumbs ups, you get a bronze medal (or ribbon, whatever floats your boat). When you get 250, silver. 500 would equal gold, and 1,000 can equal platinum or something. You could do the same with followers or anything else.
I think this would be great for easily recognizing people who contribute tot he community here.
The only problem I see are smurf accounts, where people make fake accounts to boost their own stats. So other than that, Ask.com Moderators, please consider this!
