You're about to see something new in the forums: post rating. Mostly, this feature exists to help users and guests gauge the quality of posts, but it has some other advantages, too. Most notably, post rating will in the near future help us sort search results. I think the way it works will be self explanatory, but if you have any questions, feel free to post them here... so the rest of us can rate them. Tongue

Now, heh, I know the temptation to pile the ones onto a person you dislike is great (or in the case of the BET pile them on your friends). Try not to do that, huh? Try to limit your ratings to the content of each individual post.

Thanks,
J

Then you need to search by username:

Devils_Advocate
Sungam
Caughtinside
Reno
Camhead
Dominic7

etc.

Make it so that we can see the average vote on our own posts.

If I cared about what other people thought of a post, I'd just read their responses. Also, it's pretty distracting visually, but that's something we'll probably just get used to.

Agreed on the visual impact. Maybe just make it smaller and put it off to the side?

I'm gonna let go as is for a day or two. But we'll be ironing out the wrinkles as we go along. Visually, however, I actually want it to be very noticeable, so I don't necessarily think that's a wrinkle.

is there any way that instead of every single little post having a rating, we could just rate the thread instead? I agree that now it's too crowded looking, and seems to have slowed down load times a bit. Plus, now people can bitch an moan about what they're post has been rated, whereas the quality of a whole thread cannot be affected by poor responses.

I just think that rating a whole thread would be far more effective.

Can people see how the stars in their own posts are averaging?

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!

The other thing to notice is that I can go back and change my vote.

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.

Ah...No. One cannot see their own post ratings.

You do understand, I am sure Jay, that all a person has to do is ask what their stars are. Is this another scheme to get post count increases????


edit:
hey! The stars weren't on the post of mine I looked at before??? At least I don't think they were....

I don't find the current implementation terribly useful. You can't see the ratings of your own posts, and the average doesn't mean much, since you don't know how many votes went into that average. Like others, I also find it pretty visually distracting.

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.

What happened to the stars in community?

I like Valarc's suggestion, but instead have a button for a trophy and a button for a turd. Keep a running tally of each on the post.
