Thread star ratings

Post by Super S » April 23rd, 2019, 8:01 am

I am starting to see random star ratings appearing under a few threads. I am just curious where these ratings are coming from, because I don't see a place to rate anything this way on my end.

I tend to post things based on what I see or read about. Sometimes they get responses, sometimes they don't. I am concerned about the potential of not being able to post based on these ratings.

The "ratings" are a feature of the new "thanks" button. It looks like a thumbs-up icon in the upper-right of a post.

I might get rid of "ratings" and keep the "thanks" button though. I haven't decided yet. In either case, a person's ability to post will only be judged based on prohibited content per the forum rules, never by a rating.

I'm going to get rid of the rating stars, the ratings are just too confusing. "Thanks" remain though!

I will agree they were confusing, mainly due to how they were randomly appearing.
