I think there is enough rating and judging the world today.  Perhaps too much. An up-vote is a rating system of sorts.  Unless voting was closed it will always be a moving target. People leave comments to comments as well. That creates engagement which is why we are here.  At least that is why I am here.

That is what I use the Upvote button for (aka like button). The more upvotes someone gets the best or funniest answer.  I think it works out ok.  Don't make me think so much with the 1 to 10 stuff.

I may be a good idea if people would use it? I wouldn't have the time. I read, answer, review other answers and move on; typically in that order. I'm glad the points and featured posts are done my the AR gods, I wouldn't have time typically.

I actually thought something similar at one point.  I thought maybe it would be nice for the one person with the most upvotes to get a bonus 10 points or something, just as an incentive to write a quality thought out answer.  I'm not sure if people would take the extra step to rate, but people do vote with their upvotes already. -Kasey

Agreed with Lyn.  The upvote takes care of ranking.  I doubt an "accepted answer" function like on technology blogs would work here, where there is more than one way to skin a cat.  Especially when you are talking about a marketing question versus how to do conditional formatting of an excel spreadsheet.

Love doing the 'upvote' - for the replies to the Post.  And if pertinent and helpful, love writing a reply back.  It would make me feel good to contribute if I could add something or a personal experience, which doesn't necessarily have to validate the question Annette Lawrence , Palm Harbor, FL 727-420-4041.

This is probably the only place on the web where an answer of "I don't Know" can be voted the top rated answer to a question, while the real answer gets no votes. But then, this is the only place where participants are quick to admit they don't know. The points really screww things up.
