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

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
  • Varine Varine:
    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
