Add voting for the actual ideas

Brainstorm type sites that I have used before allow users to rate the ideas themselves, but the current implementation appears to only allow rating the solutions.  Whilst this is nice to see which solution would be preferred, it does not give a clear indication of which ideas are considered the most useful/important by the community.  A further issue with the current system is that if you do not propose a solution to your idea, you can't get any votes at all.  Rating of the idea itself should be the most obvious option available to a viewer, and solution ratings should be kept but given less emphasis.
