And posts in vivarium threads? I post a lot in this section, upgrading my tutorial and answering questions, and I see that they don't count for the user rating.
Taking advantage of the question, it could be possible to make a sticky thread where we can add URLs to our tutorials? since I saw a lot of good enclosure tutorials that they are lost into the next pages very fast and easily. It could be a easy way to find some good tutorials very fast.
My 2 centavos. Just a comment-observation while I'm nauseated from a brief stint on a medical forum. All the forums there are similar to the T chat free-for-alls; hundreds of posts every week which over time has degenerated into a mutual adoration circle of back patting each other, often using loads of technical jargon and at least one fancy acronym per post. Essentially little of lasting value is said in the wave after wave word tsunami. All about Look At ME! I'm So Wonderful And Have Thousands Of Posts To Prove it. Over a million posts entirely unsearchable since most of them are saying nearly the same thing in pretty much the same wording. Certainly not a valuable reference source since trolling and ridicule is rampant and unchecked, the site's main value and purpose is commercial - advertising, going by the number of posts and active trolls... members the site trackers report.
To me AB has subtly and sensibly addressed this, sending a signal as to what are significant postings and confined the word avalanche to certain specific forums. Not that what is said on those forums isn't valuable and salient but if you have a certain specific point worth being recorded and kept, put it on a permanent venue instead of it inevitably getting lost in the wash of ongoing chatter.
I was regarding to useful posts, not to the I like you, type post. I was a Mod in a Japanese car forum, and I know what you mean.
How can we post it in permanent venue? In example my foam background tutorial, shortly i'm going to add how to make an auto misting and temperature and humidity control system info, or Fuzzhead, moricollins, Rhino1, PGRVII, ArachnidSentinl enclosures etc.
I'll try to post a tutorial of how to made an euro style enclosure for cheap too.
