This is not specific for rel-forum but the problem seems to happen the most here. Mods feel free to move it anywhere. Just as we have a way to rate the advices can we have a way to rate the thread with more than a yellow star?Let me explain. When a thread runs for 100 feedbacks a lot of insight is gained into the problem and the OP. Lets say an impasse is reached in a particular case. After a gap of few months when the pool of the active posters changes the same OP posts the same problem with a different title ...with the same result..a deadlock after few pages.Story repeats endlessly..and spans few months or even years. Now posters who have been here long enough see a pattern.They see the futility of it all.How many times does the wheel have to be re-invented? And they are human ...they want to warn people that their energy is better spent in other threads where women really want help..where the time spent in analyzing a problem to come up with a solution actually has some meaning. Does IL rel forum have a venue for that? Just as we have likes for the advice... can we have a way to rate the OPs thread? A way to actually prioritize the threads that will get looked into? A way to channelize the energy. A rating not based on the problem but how an OP actually handled them in the past.In the absence of such an avenue ..the frustration will continue to show up. Your thoughts?
