I want to encourage new developers at my company to use tools like stackoverflow. The problem I have run in to is without the ability to vote up/down and comment on posts, my developers can't get the full use out of the site.
I understand the restriction on new users and the purpose behind reputation points, but I was wondering if there could be some system for me to "Vouch" for my employees. I would envision something where I could give some number of my points to someone that I know is reputable to allow them to instantly make use of more of the site features.
Does something like this exist? If not is there some reason that I am missing?
EDIT: This transfer of reputation points from one user account to another would probably not be a 1 to 1 transfer. More like if I want to give a user 10 points to get started, I would have to give up 100 points. This way if a user is spinning off side accounts for themselves they would need to vote up 9 of their own answers with the same account just to break even. More than that would establish a pattern that is easy enough to detect.
Second EDIT: I could also see there being some minimum level a user needs to get before he/she can vouch for someone and a max limit to the number of people you can vouch for a month, or year, or so.
