How is it implimented? Can we search threads based on ratings? What is it used for exactly?

How do I rate a thread?
You may find a small menu on thread pages which allows you to 'rate this thread' with a number between 1-5.

Casting a vote for threads you view is entirely optional, but if you think that the thread is superb, you might rate it as a 5-star thread, or if you think that it's unspeakably dismal, you might choose to rate the thread with a single star.

Once enough votes have been cast for the thread rating, you may see a set of stars appear with the title of the thread in the thread listings. These stars reflect the average vote cast, and can allow you to quickly see which threads are worth reading if you are on a very busy board with a lot of threads.

I don't think you can search for threads based on ratings, and I've yet to see a thread with enough votes to be rated.
So how many votes do we need?

ignorance contributes generously to these things. :emb:
What? Only three stars for this thread? :cry:

Unfortunately, an user can only vote once like the poll :p
i guess this is kinda like the hp/mp thingy at another forum I've been to. Kinda cool, if you ask me.

I'd rather have the hp/mp thingy. That's saying a lot. It's annoying to look at...annoying period, really.
I was referring to that other forum's hp/mp. This hurts my eyes...:cool:

ah, that's easy. don't click on the "go" button anymore. once you release the pulldown menu, it automatically gives the rating you chose. :)
i had that problem at first too. Why da hell is there a go button there anyway?

Oh... okay... I get it... I think... :heh:
It's bizzare.... and personally I don't see the use of this feature... the HP/MP would've looked cooler :p
dont be too picky now...

If this rating system is going to continue then may be they should differentiate between different "so called rainbows".
seriously. The only way I could first tell is by checking the picture's URL.

something HAS to go. There's too many things on the side, and it clutters the side up.

I . . . concur. :) The date joined and user rating are a little . . . pointless (at least the way rating is applied). :p
well, for people like Xev and I, it shows how much we have posted in such a small amount of time...
