Why is it so that we can not rate any thread on GAG based on how much we like it, just like opinion comments? Like give it a like/dislike? There are plenty of questions or takes where one would not bother commenting but would not mind rating them if he thinks they are helpful thus giving them at least some of his attention. Furthermore if we also show threads in the order of their likes or dislikes and not just relevance or date, then many good threads would not be buried into obscurity as they always are on this site. Look at youtube and notice that it actually has a good mechanic of making the popular vids stay afloat.

There was such system in which we could rate the question from 1-5 star.
It was however discontinued because it might make question askers more insecure and thus it'd make the site feed cold.
Furthermore, people are not perfect in giving ratings. Once someone gave a bad rating to a good question first, it would repel many people from visiting that thread.
So it's better as it is. :-)4
