Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This idea is about saving a valuable pieces of code from the ocean of the questions that everyday are posted on Stack Overflow .
It could be like an upvote, but only on the code box, maybe also with an optional short comment. In my idea only the people who earned, at least, the silver badge on that language can voteup the code. Then, of course, it's needed the ability to search on this library.

(i hope it's not duplicated)

I will never get the point here on meta :P – Cesar May 3 '10 at 8:20

It's a nice idea, but not really necessary IMO. In my experience, the normal upvoting/downvoting process for answers already does this. Bad code is very likely to get pointed out, commented on, and downvoted, and good code gets upvoted if it is part of a good answer.

As much as I appreciate the time taken to churn out a fantastic piece of answer-centric code, many other good answers do not come in the form of codes. There are also lots of comments which turned out to be 'better' than the answers. We wouldn't want a 'What a line of comment!", do we?

We already vote on comments ;) – perbert May 2 '10 at 16:12
@voyager, you are spot on for this. The tooltip for the comment upvote is "this is a great comment". Ooops.. I stepped on my own foot. – o.k.w May 2 '10 at 23:48
