Most websites have a recommendation area, whereby you can give recs to characters (E.g. Linken-in etc), for their abilities.
How about recs for members for their teaching ability, playing style ability, posting ability, introduction ability, history within the site, positivity, negativity () - no go), creativity and so on. An internal rec of persons and chess mentors etc.
