Solutions for this brainstorm


Solution #1: As favorites

Use a similar scheme as favorites: every thumbs vote gives 0.25 karma to voter. Solutions proposer gets 1+(number of thumbs up) karma.


Solution #2: Expanding on Attila's proposal

In Brainstorm, you have the ability to shape the way Maemo, and evolve over time.  Let's take this a little further.  If someone's problem and solution evolves from the sandbox-->Under Consideration-->In Development-->Implemented, then the amount of karma that they get for that idea should increase.

Karma would have to take into account the following:


1. proposing a problem (+1)

2. proposing a solution (+1)

3. Thumbs up (+0.25)

4. Thumbs down (no change, as per Planet's methodology)

5. progression of problem/solution from sandbox-->Under Consideration-->In Development-->Implemented.  (say one extra point from moving from sandbox to under consideration, and then a few more points for the next progressions.

6. Comments on someone's problem. (+1)
