So now the community doesn't get asked about the forum anymore? Care to explain what it is? More about : rate post steve_sa January 8, 2006 6:11:01 PM This is a new feature intended to: a) (at some point) highlight top rated posts b) highlight top rated authors It is intended to be used to increase quality of posts, and highlight posters that provide real quality content. Ned_Flanders January 8, 2006 8:46:47 PM Anything else you want to throw on upon us? How about getting round to sorting the shít layout of the forum?

Ara slvr_phoenix January 13, 2006 2:28:18 PM I'm sure it's just something like an averaging system where each vote counts from 0 to 4, or some such. So just vote the worst you can if you feel negatively. It's just a matter of perspective anyway. steve_sa January 13, 2006 5:02:05 PM A 'low' vote is more positive than 'no' vote... so it is all positive. Yes, we could do a negative voting too, but I personally believe in positive slvr_phoenix January 16, 2006 4:42:18 PM Well, negative or positive, could we at least make the meaning of the little stars a bit clearer? Maybe empty stars could actually be a completely empty graphic so that only positive stars are visible? The coloration method has me foncused. steve_sa January 16, 2006 6:53:17 PM The yellow starts could be white instead. Any photoshop volunteers out there? :?: Ned_Flanders January 16, 2006 7:01:43 PM Why show the all the stars? How about just showing the stars which the post has been rated at. Anyway: 2 secs and MSpaint will have you what you want. steve_sa January 16, 2006 7:04:25 PM From one what I have seen, most people show all the stars, so that one gets a feeling of the overall scale. Go for it, Ned :wink: Ned_Flanders January 16, 2006 7:08:36 PM Alas, I forgot about the transparency: MSPaint will not suffice. Not that I'm bothered, but when dealing with stars, it is all ways out of 5...well almost always. slvr_phoenix January 17, 2006 3:59:15 PM How about this?
