Can't recall the forum software used but it was unique. In a way it was kind of a self moderating forum.
I think it should be easy to use a like button to show which threads are "highly rated" by readers just like the ratings for products on sites like Amazon. In the listing of threads those with more stars might be attractive to those searching for things to rea than those with fewer or none.
