Hello, I am not sure if this is correct area of the site for this, but since it
says 'Forum Feedback' I am going to assume it's correct.
I've noticed (As most probably have) that the rep function is vastly underused.
My suggestion is that we have the 'Thanks' function add to ones rep, so when you are thanked for an answer, your rep would be increased.
I don't know if this is practical, but it's just a suggestion. Let me know what you think.
