Do you want a post voting feature?

Well does something annoying/magical happen if you get repped?

You get a number of points, but it's easy to max out. People rep a post and leave a comment.

Or what about only being allowed one vote per thread per day?

Yes, that would work.  The original purpose of this is to highlight a useful post hidden within an unrelated thread.  Once this is brought to light, and people start to read the chosen post within the thread then they are likely to see the other good posts so less of a need to vote on more than 1 post per thread.

Maybe commenting is a bit over the top, people will generally just comment anyway won't they?

It's on a different page. You have a rep page. People aren't aware of the reps or the comments made.

The comment is quite a good idea as it will help to highlight those who are just supporting their friends from the true thanks.

Another side benefit of this is that the authors of the useful posts will be given a clear feedback of how popular/useful his/her posts are.  IF so desired, this feedback can help the author to focus more energy on providing the posts which are perceived by the forum to be of most use.

So it's like a secret page to see whether or not your posts are worth reading?'

When I first read Philip's post on this, I thought it would be a fun thing, however, upon thinking it over and then reading your comment Mark " I happen to use a forum that has this system and it can sometimes feel like a popularity contest with people voting up those who they like regardless of what they say", I believe I would not use this feature for these reasons - there would no doubt be some monumental ego clashes resulting in lots of "Moderating" .....

Yes, it would probably increase hostility, whether that is a worthwhile sacrifice I don't know.
