I've had this crazy idea...
What if, to make a discussion forum more interactive, you also had a range of quizzes/tests on the subjects covered by your forum.
Then, forum members can answer these tests, and if they score well enough, are rewarded with special rankings in the forum.
I know phpBB can provide standard and "special" rankings, I'm just wondering, having searched high and low myself, if anyone is aware of such a script?
That is, one that will allow you, the owner/moderator, to create multiple-choice quizzes and with a high enough score resulting will somehow "flat" that member whenever they post as an expert on that subject?!
The only way I've found so far is to create the quizzes using one script, then based on the results, the mods would have to manually adjust everyone's rankings - something that would waste huge amounts of time each day with a busy forum.
I'd suggest finding a php quiz script or two that seem to meet your needs, and then solicit input or paid help in one of the hack forums for your forum software. This doesn't sound like a really difficult task (easy for me to say, I won't be coding it!).
This is definitely a custom job that I haven't seen before. Good luck to you.
