It’s a good idea, I think it would encourage higher quality comments and more participation. A couple of years ago Amazon introduced the “Verified Purchase” and “Vine Voice” it brought in a ton of people who regularly purchase/participate in the Amazon community.
1 informative = $1 account credit?
At least we'll find out who is the IPVM Class Clown.
A member emailed me suggesting that we use these votes for 'peer recognition' / stars. I think this is a good idea. For example, next to top commenter's names in discussions, we place some special identifier.
I think it would be useful to do both.

John, in addition to the "off topic/not helpful" maybe discussions that are started due to problems or questions could be marked as "solved" once a solution has been provided. I have seen this feature used on other sites and it is helpful to the OP. Members who post the solution could receive an identifier as you mentioned above.

Pay for votes???.... hmmm sounds like Tammany Hall John! LOL
I like the poles as to the nature of them, lets you comment w/out getting in to big discussions and details the drag on. Simple answers, adding other icons would be great.
poles, surveys, etc are only as accurate, or good as the quantity, quality, and reason for votes
who, what, why, where does it really apply to where you live in the world
Note: 'unhelpful' has been added in as a voting option.
The goal of 'unhelpful' is when you believe something is either very clearly wrong or way off topic. This is a way to recognize / discourage bad comments.
You must be competing for the IPVM Class Clown award? :)
I'll try to brave it out and continue posting comments but if my ego gets dented I may go dark!
Love all the tools & comments - keep them coming.
Would it be possible to make hitting Agree, Disagree, etc. a second time would undo your previous vote? Within a grace period perhaps? Mainly for cases of inadvertent fat fingered flicks.
Not being able to fix mistakes makes showering with an IPad more difficult than it need be.
