Jacob, I have no idea why you think you were offending me. I was just discussing it with you in a friendly manner (my typing and natural conversations tend to be very straight-forward but also congested with sarcasm). So, no worries there bud.

I was just trying to point out some things that make a list like you’re talking about almost impossible (you can implement it in some form, but it starts becoming a huge task (complexity and scope creep injection) as you begin to increase the variables that affect the algorithm).

I’ll add a little to what PurpLev is saying and also mention the time differences for some of us. We have members from all around the world and even if you use just the ones from the US as an example the time differences may prohibit delivery of an answer in a timely manner.

That, and some of us have entirely different working schedules (for instance I work 9-5 as a software engineer and then work on woodworking on the weekends, but I’m also on the computer almost nightly from 9 PM until 2 AM CST).

The idea is great. The politics, logistics, and data management hurdles to accomplish it aren’t fun though.
