an idea - to increase the numbers of post we should have a bonus-system.
this system depends on how many replies gets a topic. if someone makes an interessting topic that gets many answers ,he or she should get for example for each 10 replies another post-point. otherwise ,to post pics of nearly naked young women has  the result of a deduction of post-points. poor mila and poirot
now , to be serious, and as i told already ,i do love stats. so we can devide between real post-points and for my part answer-post-points.

I'a sure he must be.

I'm not quite sure what this is supposed to achieve, some kind of quality measure?
Unfortunately, the number of replies to a new topic is no measure for anything, certainly not for the quality of the originl contribution, nor for that of the replies received.
As an example, I only have to use the words "Armenian..." or "Cyprus....." in a topic title, and in a couple of minutes AE's server will overheat, as fast as the discussion will go downhill.
Other forums have introduced a scheme, where points awarded to members by fellow members, for the quality of their posts, but I think, such a scheme is either necessary nor appropriate for AE.
If only for the reason that AE has an international membership, but its common language is English which by far not all members have as their mother tongue. It wouldn't be fair to those members who cannot express themselves in English as well as others.
The current system, where rankings are based on the number of posts alone, is not perfect, it does not always reflect the quality of the posts, but at least is reflects commitment to AE, which is equally important.
I can't see any reason to change that.

This is a  method to measure the importance for scientific papers but i think that doesn't works here, don't be so german
