Respectfully, I think you are the one missing the point. What nobody will come right and tell you is that since the "take over" we are slowly loosing the things we are familiar with on this site. Sometimes change is not good. Leave well enough alone. Don't fix something that isn't broken. It is possible to fix things to the point they really will be broken. We have gotten along just fine the way things are. What you are suggesting will turn posting into a popularity contest. Most of us are not teenyboppers here on AVS and really don't want another FaceBook or Twitter. I really don't want to compete to be "friended" when I post nor do I want to be targeted with advertising.
