Better reputation system

I feel the karma system is stale(sorry)
I don't know how to state but there are a few ideas and I don't know how can I put those in a structured way.

Apart from the applaud and smite, the number of comments and new topic started by that member shall also be counted. I'm not getting it shall be given great importance but shall be counted.

Like or '+1' system for comments and new topics.(shall be counted in karma)

Also, karma must also count the response a topic gets. If a members starts a topic and gets a lot of 'likes' and comments, his/her karma must be greater than other.

Also there must be a way to sort the comments by 'newest first' and 'most liked'

James--:
Well, it would be awesome to create some kind of plugin or mod which automatically would do-follow the external links of a member who has 10+ karma points or more or something. That would be a fantastic feature.

Antes:
Well achievement point system can be better. Rewards maybe;

* can post w/o filling captcha
* can put avatar, can put external links
* can put signature (basic)
* can use sig advanced (can put links-images etc...)

Agree. It's a start of a reputation system, but small and insufficient for what the users who need it, need it to behave like.

Dunno. Number of posts are counted separately and available for viewing... whether that has much meaning or not. Of course, the obvious issue would be if reputation is or should be indeed dependent on number of posts.

This sounds useful for a reputation system.

Dunno. :). Comments... if the topic starts a "war", it is possible to get a lot of comments. :D


If SMF should have a reputation system (should it really? I wonder if it's best left to extensions), using it for permissions is a different thing though. Depending on the reputation system's criteria, it could be seen as very useful or very unfair and/or impeding more than helping the building of a community. Not sure. A member who doesn't get "likes" (maybe their posts are perfectly okay, but not exactly impressive) wouldn't be able to do things unless they chase "some more likes"...
I don't know if the perspective I'm looking at things is likely or unlikely to happen, but there's something here I have very strong doubts about. :)

CDM:
Is there a mod for 1.1.16 that enables members to "like" their fellow members' posts?
