Cell Phone Forums has successfully implemented a helpful post rating system that helps users find what they're looking for.

The system works by allowing users to rate a post helpful or not helpful. If a user receives a helpful rating, they get reputation posts (they will receive more reputation points from higher ranked users, like staff and established users) and also received CPF $, which allows the user to purchase features for the site in the feature store. The most helpful post in a thread is then highlighted and linked to under the first post of the thread.

Be sure to look out for contests based on the helpful post system!
