This suggestion comes from the MSDN site. I would think it would be nice to be able to rate the assumed understanding of the reader for articles. By this, I mean a rating (like 100 - 400) as to how much the reader must understand to be able to follow an article. For example, if a respected author writes a "Reindexing 101" article, experienced readers can see that it is a level 100 article and ignore it (if desired). Likewise, if there is an article on the contents of a data page header, then the newbies know that they need a good understanding for this. Other benefits, I believe, would be a more even-handed rating for articles. I believe a good number of seasoned DBAs get annoyed reading an article with obvious information to them. If they knew it was something not useful to them, they can ignore it if they so choose. Let me know what you think.
