So, Carlos and I have been talking about the 1UPs seen in a few places on the site. What we're thinking is that 1UPs should be on forum posts and the number of 1UPs you have received on content you've posted should be displayed on your profile. No 1UP leaderboards or anything, but I think it would be a good way of gauging how much people like your content.
What do you think? What would you like to see out of 1UPs?
In my opinion, anything that can be posted by a user should be able to be 1UP'd. A total would be nice and I agree on no leaderboards. Dangerous spammy roads with that.
Instead of the confusing counter that's on the profile right now, maybe just add a little green mushroom to the profile with a counter beside it?
Yeah, that was really just temporary. I also want to be able to link to things people have 1UPed themselves. That way you can look back at content you found enjoyable in one place.
I second Nincodedo. I'd actually 1UP his post.
That's part of the reason I want to introduce 1UPs to forum posts, actually. Sometimes people just want to agree but don't necessarily have something to add.
I would like the little 1-up noise every time you click it.
If that's too annoying for some then maybe have a way to mute it in your profile settings.

I do like this idea, kind of like favoriting, or even google's +1 list on your profile.
