This is an idea that may overlap with the "Exchange Ideas" suggestion, but an alternative implementation.
I think it would be useful to be able to rate questions as well as responses.
NetPro seems to be based on the problem solving model. Someone posts a problem, someone else responds, and anyone can rate the response. It would be great to be able to rate the original posting posting too. This would be useful if:
1. The original posting is a useful piece of research, an interesting observation, or a particularly perceptive question.
2. The original posting is not a question at all, and does not demand any response.
3. Someone wants to flag the whole conversation as useful, and not just an individual contribution.
What do we think?
