Hy guys,I have IPB 2.2In the topic rating, i would like add 5 stars! (i need 10 stars, no 5)Can you help me? (by PM-Mail or here)Thanks!
This is not possible with a default installation of IPB 2.xIf you are looking for a modification, or peer support, please use IPS Beyond. I'll leave this topic open in case it is intended to be a feature suggestion for a later version.
+1 (well, +5, actually). I was thinking that I'd like half-stars, but this amounts to the same thing, kinda.Also, there's no way for a user to REMOVE his or her rating once they've voted. I'd like to see that.Also, there's no "zero stars" vote, which I'd like to see.
I agree that users should be able to remove the rating they've given to a topic. What if an originally high rated topic suddenly went terribly off-topic, for example?
The half-star thing is a little over-the-top, or is it just me?
Maybe. It depends on how you're using it.In my case, I use the topic ratings NOT to rate the discussions themselves, but rather to rate the SUBJECTS of the discussion, in my case individual movies, recordings, TV shows. One way I use this data is to create a Metacritic-like Film ratings webpage that lists, in descending order, the ratings given by my members to the films that have received five or more votes. (Our #1 film from 2006 so far is United 93.) It's just a SQL query in a php script, plus some math, but it's a great use of the ratings system.As far as the ability to REMOVE already-cast votes, I'm very much in favor of that. People always make mistakes, for examply accidentally clicking a rating for (in my case) a film they haven't even seen yet, or which they later decide not to have an opinion on.If my members had a more detailed way of casting votes (e.g. 1-10 or half stars), and the ability to remove their votes, the accuracy of the ratings system might be enhanced.
Couldn't we have an admin setting of how many stars? Similar to how we can set how many warning blocks
I agree with whoever said the half stars thing. I would like to see half stars added.
