**playing devil's advocate**
So I've been here a while and I know the membership. Who is a quality poster, who is hit and run etc..
Now if I was a new member however, or a visitor for example, what can I use to quickly identify quality posters and direct myself to their content?
I constantly go to people's profiles and read their threads and posts directly from those links if I enjoyed a particular thread by any given member
that I'm not too familiar with.
I could see myself doing that more, if there were some visual indication on the Avatar or something similar that would tell me that according to the
'system in place' this member has been designated as a quality contributor.
For us long term members who are here everyday, it's that much of a big deal, cause we already know who is who and who stands where.
For the regular ATS member who logs in once a week or a month, to new visitors who visit only once, it could be very beneficial. Not only in leading
them towards the quality content, but also for keeping those short term members by wowing them so to speak.
ETA: Personally, the accolades I could care less about, I'm here for the community, not the bell's and whistles, but shiny things are nice right?
