The idea sounds interesting, if a staff member is rating it, but what does it do? Does it get pinned if it meets certain criteria, because if not, then no matter what it's rated as, if somebody has to hunt through several pages of content just to find a high-star topic, it'll probably be ignored as it is now.
Not sure about pinning the topics, as that could be problematic if there are more than 2 or 3 "pin-worthy" topics (imagine having a page full of pinned topics; not good).
Perhaps a pinned topic in that forum that lists the 4-star/5-star rated topics would work better. =D

I think this is a great idea if done properly, and the staff member idea sounds perfect. A group of staff members each rate individually on a topic and the average rating will be given to the topic. Then if rated highly enough, there are several possibilities for benefits, such as a notice of this topic in the R3 News and Views, or maybe a reward, or a pinning.
I think I like the idea of noting it in the R3 News and Views, and we could always establish some reward for anyone submitting a "5-star Tutorial".
Good thinking guys, these are the sort of ideas I like to see.
