I imagine most serious video game reviewers already have their own blog or site where they post them, however, we could link to these if they shared their review here as well. If others like the review idea reply below and perhaps we can work out more details for adding them... and +Rep OGroteKoning

The only thing I'd want to avoid if we do retool the Guides area is having subforums for them hehe... I prefer to keep the general Forum layout limited to the sections we have now versus having like 10 guides sections with 2 active and 8 that are generally dead most of the time.
One idea we could consider is having CJPC make a script that lists ALL of the Tutorial threads, and then someone could reorder them on a single categorized 'directory' page, but finding someone to go through them all is the hard part.
The other issue I guess we'd run into is 80% of the guides are probably dated, so while they are great for archival purposes they probably won't help as much with current-day PS3 stuff.

It handles, for example, the "hottest" based on views... but short of adding the "Like" system here (which I really don't care for, as it slows down pageloads and prevents people from actually being active through posting what they like vs just clicking a "Like" button) I am not sure.
We had numbers showing for User Reputation back when we used the Forum Activity Mod, but most members just ignored it and so when we upgraded to vB4 we removed it since the green bars are the default Rep system vBulletin uses.
Currently the Rep system is used here to promote users from, for example, Registered to Jr Member and so on... if we removed the Rep system promotions would be based solely on post count which we actually tried in the past with less desirable results (bs posts just to up Rep).
I do appreciate the feedback though elser1
and +Rep... I will keep my eyes open on potential ways we could implement the worst, funniest and dumbest post if we add the Stats block.
