Great ideas. I especially like (no pun intended) the "like" button for posts, and for a bunch of reasons.
I've often thought that some way to quantify (imperfect though it must be) the "reputation" of posts and posters might be useful to those who read threads and have a hard time assessing the relative value of various posters. While you eventually get such a sense of who is who if you read and post for a long time, newer participants - especially those who are beginners at this stuff - may give too much or too little credence to posts.

(I suspect that those who have been here a while have noticed that not only those who post in forums have opinions about what they read - I know I get the occasional PM from folks who just read the threads and don't post themselves.)
