    Well, I've seen it once on the other site.

    The rating system wnich was working like this: not every member can vote, olny mods and those, who has at least x (let's say 5) marks wnich are 4 or 5 (they can rate only this resource that they are rated ). This will keep noobs from downvoting really good stuff and will help those who want high quality resources ( besides I really liked this rating stuff :p).

    Hope you guys get what I have in mind :)

    You mean give voting privalages to veteran members or those who have proven themsevles to be responsible feedback givers? Sounds feasible.

    The only problem with your idea is classifying those who are respectable and who's not. There has to be a way to decide who are respectable members without leaving anyone out. Thats beside the point that the chance of Darky ever getting around to doing this will take who knows how long.

    I don't see any problems with classyfication. Mods can vote in the category they moderate ( I assume that all mods are respectable ) and other voters have high enough rating to be skilled and not to be stupid trolls and noobs who are downvoting everything.

    The mods can vote from the beggining. Mods are respectable I think so there shouln't be problems with them downvoting.

    Well the beggining will be a bit hard but as more users will get the abillity to vote all should be fine.
