Well. Advogato is growing fast. I think some sort of system is needed whereby you can have a shortlist of people you wish to track. I don't want to wade through every account each day to find certain people, and I don't want to bookmark them as I use different computers most of the time.
So basically I want a button to add them to a shortlist, so I can stalk^Htrack those people mentioned.
I'd also love to see an experiment with *two* levels. A general contribution rating, and a project specific rating. So for example, I could rate a FreeBSD developer as a master at FreeBSD, but a Journeyer in general.
I'm not sure it would be entirely workable, but it would be interesting to have multiple levels to rank on. Maybe even split it into "Documentation/Coding/General/SomeOtherStuff" and rank those. Might make the whole thing too much work.
Oh, and I noticed people rating ESR as dimwit, because they believe he's a fraud. Isn't that the wrong way to look at the whole thing? I ranked ESR as I really would, because then it stops being a reflection on the person hidden behind the alias, but a reflection of the skills of the REAL person. Much more satisfying to see.
