I think a digg or reddit style thumbs up/thumbs down system would be both simpler and more effective. Each thumbs up is a +1, and each thumbs down is a -1 - the post gets an overall score, so posts that were loved by lots of people will get a high score. This would make sorting a lot more intuitive - under the current system, a post with one 5-star vote looks better than a post with five 5-star votes and 1 one-star, depending on how you handle the rounding. Under the +/- system, the first post would have a score of +1, while the second would have a score of +4, more clearly illustrating that the second was enjoyed by more people.

I find the new feature annoying. At best.

A useless feature that brings nothing to the table. It isn't going to improve "content", eliminate trolls, or help determine which zingers are actually funny.

Jay,

...if you have voted on a post, leave the thread, then come back to it, and then hover the mouse over the stars again the vote disappears.

...a minor glitch perhaps?

I have to say, about these new star wars: It is my opinion that no good can come of this.....

But it ought to be entertaining to see what happens. Smart marketing Jay. Middle of winter blues - toss some gas in the fire to heat things up!

LaughLaughBusted, I am!

As to your question, though, nope, too much functionality for its own good I think.

Im sure you could use a vote change to intentionally draw out the butthuttz.

Can we change our votes on pictures? I'll have to go check.

Not sure about pictures, but probably. Here, that's by design, just in case you accidentally hit a star when you mean to hit something else.

I didn't intend to imply that the stars wouldn't solve everything. I ment to imply they wouldn't solve anything.

I guess I'm stuck on "why the feature" Unless it is one part of an integrated new feature set???.

Yes, indeedy. Eventually the search feature will rely heavily on it, and hopefully users will also be able to set filters, much like they used to be able to do with trophies and poo. This is part of the package that includes blue forums and the eventual killfile.

how is this going to improve the search feature? are you going to classify the posts by topic? because the biggest problem right now with telling people to "do a search" for something (by topic) is that the search feature will only return posts with the search terms in it, rather than returning *thread* ranked by number of times the search terms are included. and the biggest problem with searching for a particular post/phrase, is that you can't sift through results by sorting by multiple criteria (poster, date, thread title) on the fly.

but i do fail to see how this is going to help the search feature.

Even more reason to go to the simpler trophy/poo, or slightly less infantile thums up/thumbs down system, IMHO.

If I set a filter to remove all posts with only one star, that means posts with only a single vote, by someone who doesn't like a certain guy, will get filtered, in addition to those posts that get 50 one-star votes because they are clearly trolls or flamebait.

In the same scenario, one post would have a -1 score, and the other a -50, so if I set my filters to -10 and below, I could more easily control the level of filtering.

I am not shure what to think of the idea.
It could be very usefull to have some way to identify good content, but being able to rate every single post is a bit too much.
Also how does the number of posts get weighted?
For example we have one thread with only one post that is so stupid that noone even clicks on the title, apart from dumbn00b92s buddy, who rates dumbn00b92s post on how to safe money by using hardwear store carabiners a 5. So The only thing on carabiners with a straight five that pops up in the search first will then be this lunacy.

Maybe better to rate threads?
Wait for a minimum amount of votes until the ratings take effect?

And the visual side:
It is too distracting at the moment.
It needs to be much smaller. Maybe place it to the side, sowhere under the avatar?
But first and foremost:
GET RID OF THOSE WHITE BOXES AROUND THE STARS! THAT TOTALLY BUGS ME!
No seriously, give those little grafics a background that is matching the forum color, like this:
