This is a bad idea. The ranks are a sort of reward for when you post funny things. I'm trying to get to the divider of zero rank, myself. Without the ranks, the motivation would kind of poof for a lot of people.
Plus, a TON of funny content sites have a 5 star rating scale-type thing, but I think the thumbs are almostkindanotreally unique to FJ.
Instead of saying, '10 thumbs for moar' will we be saying, '10 stars for moar'? I sure hope not, because that sounds kind of gay.
This is my own opinion...feel free to reply with disagreements or anyone who feels the same way I do.

No, see, the ranks reward people that get thumbs, not those that are funny. You know about all the unfunny stuff that gets to the front page. And, people shouldn't be saying "10 thumbs for more" in the first place, I personally think it's thumbwhoring, simply make more if people like it. If you disagree with me, don't thumb me down, but instead comment.

I understand your reasoning, but the ranks still push a lot of people to post funny content in hopes that it will hit the front page. I know a ton of stupid **** always makes it to the top, but funny stuff does, as well.

**anonymous rolls 929,150,011** That's true, but look at members like DSend. all his **** is ******* retarded, and he has one of the highest ranks available.

P.S. I'm an Anon right now, but I have an account. I just don't sign in for comments because I don't want eleventy billion red thumbs, deleting my account.

I actually think he's pretty funny. :/ He gets more thumbs than he really deserves, but he /did/ work his way up to where he is now.
And what if you get a bunch of green thumbs for something? I got 80 thumbs yesterday for some gay comment like, "YEEEEAAAH! :D".

There could still be a front page if we had star rating system. Plus, if something is pretty funny, we don't have to give it the same thumb as something truly epic. What I also think would be good is if we were forced to rate anything we see with the star system.

Would you /really/ want to have to rate EVERY picture, though? D: I sure wouldn't.
