Feel free to shoot this down but could we implement some JavaScript to allow
people to rate pages if they were useful.

This would give us a way to quantify not only what is useful but what is
also no longer accessed (if no one is using it then no one is rating it).
Simple five star roll over or such like, you know like IMDB[1] has.

Plus it looks cool.

look up 1995 and the advent of the Internet, lol)
