Would be a nice replacement if the forum could just replace the number of views with ratings.

Ratings would be made out of 5 stars. Each time you enter a thread You could have the option on the top left/right side to rate the specific thread. Views, I think are not so useful and if removed, will not cause any major loss.

We had topic ratings before but they were abused to death and had to be removed.

I think that is a more useful knowing the views than what other people rate the topics, Now In the Tutorial Section, I think perhaps a usefulness rating would be good, Good Tutorials could get a Thumbs Up, Poor ones get a Thumbs Down.

Ratings pretty much never work anywhere on the Internet. As soon as you have a rating system people either hand out the lowest rating or the highest rating possible and never in between. More often than not it is the lowest rating and just a different way of dubbing someone a troll for no other reason than not liking a certain topic even if it is very thought out.
