Need [url removed, login to view] style rating/functionality for a vBulletin forum that will be targeting bargain/deal hunters.
The idea behind [url removed, login to view] is that members submit articles they think are worthy, and then if other members like it, they click to "digg it", and the site keeps track of how many times the article has been "dugg".
Well, for each article posted, users can leave comments. Each comment posted can be given a green "thumbs up" or a red "thumbs down" by a user. If a comment has 0 ratings, a single "thumbs down" will give the comment a -1. If the comment reaches -10, the comment is then "hidden" (you see a bar acknowledging the post, but you have to click to read it instead of it being listed). This is what I would love to have made available for my vB forum.
The idea is, any given post can be given a "thumbs up" or "thumbs down". If a post recieves, say, 28 votes, and 18 are bad, while 10 are good, that post would be at "-10". This would mean the post would then be "hidden" to where it's just a strip saying something like:
"posted by JohnDoe X hours ago - [below viewing threshold, show comment ("show comment" would be clickable, when you click, it drops open the post to be read; I would gues that 'AJAX' would be useful for this)] - X diggs *insert clickable thumbsdown here* *insert clickable thumbsup here*"
I envision being able to see the the most "dugg" topics in each forum and ALL forums maybe by selecting a menu on forum home.
Please visit [url removed, login to view] for ideas and [url removed, login to view] for inspiration.
I will be using the latest (3.6.1 at the moment of this posting) vBulletin with this skin:

Thank you for your time.
