I like that idea, but will TH do this?
I am pretty sure TH won't mind going for it, the Award system is kind of buggy on VB3 unfortunately. However, I don't mind supporting you on making some kind of system for this project. It supports Activity so I don't see any problem. :thup:

Idea 1:

User will be given a several boxes to fill out: author, number of pages, and genre (classic, modern, post-modern/contemporary).

Variables will work like this:

Author is "Z": (Shakespeare is .5)
Number of Pages is "X"
Genre is "Y" (Classic is 0, Modern is .5, Post-modern is 1)
Points award is "A"

Example:

Input Information
Author is Shakespeare, 300 pages, and genre is classic.

Data:
Z = .5
X = 300
Y = 0

Equation:
(((X ÷ 100)+Z)-Y) = A

Answer: 3.5
Reward: 4 (all rounded)

In my experience, TH will do anything provided the idea is:

1) Legal.
2) Not a complete rip off of someone else's idea.
3) Workable.
4) Going to improve content or activity on the site.

I believe those points need to be addressed before any further discussion on ideas take place. Can we reach those points? That is my question. I do not know the answer. I do not know what resources TH.net has. I will not assume TH has anything that will put this idea into work unless said otherwise. Right now, I'm convinced that it'd be better just to make a different website; alas, I can not commit to creating a separate community.

Talk to Miz or Ghan about resources. The idea is obviously legal. We already discussed whether or not it was original and agreed it was. Now all that's left is resources, as you said and the influence it will have on site activity.

Page number isn't very good. Different publications typically have different amounts of pages.

This is true; however, it'd be hard to "rate" quality. The whole idea is to encourage people to read rather than to rate books. Rating books is just against my philosophy. :p
