Member 'expert' status suggestion
So I was thinking that as I have been a member a few years now I can pick out the people whose advice I really trust on certain areas/products/issues etc. eg I know who to listen to if I have a linux problem, or SCCM or networking etc
Obviously when I was a new member I obviously didn't have that advantage.
Therefore I propose that members of the community who have a proved track record of providing knowledge about an area are given an 'expert' rank ie 'Linux Expert' etc. Then if that person provides info then a viewer knows that comment has a lot of weight behind it.
This is different to rep as its more specific.
Perhaps people could be nominated for the rank or chosen by admins but I wouldn't expect it to be handed out lightly.
