New feature: Post Ratings
« on: March 15, 2006, 12:58:38 PM »

We've just added a feature to rate posts as "Helpful" or "Not Helpful." If you are registered and logged in, there are two new links to the left of a post, under the posters name. When you click on one you rate the post, and the forum members overall rating score is adjusted.

We added this feature to help make it easier for new users to identify information that's been useful for other users, and to be able to see who the good sources of information are on our forums.

While you are reading a post, please take an extra couple seconds to think about the post and rate its helpfulness.

As a Poster, how can I identify which of my posts were rated "Helpful" or "Not Helpful"?

Yes.  Look above your picture on any of your posts. ;)

Ah, if only it were that easy...  ;)
I see the +/- post rating and the number of posts, but I don't see any way to tag a post as helpful (or not)...
Have a look at the attached screenshot to see what I see...  Thanks!

Yours looks like this to me:

Newbie
*

Post rating: +0/-0
[helpful] [not helpful]
Posts: 3

I don't know for sure but I suspect the "[helpful] [not helpful]" option doesn't appear as long as one is in "newbie" status. This would be a good programing feature to help prevent abuse by someone that would just log on to click ratings.

The good news is the "newbie" status disappears after 10 posts. So search around the forum for ideas and ask questions if you have them.

Thanks, steven r.  I'll keep posting (only when relevant, of course  ;)) and hope the links show up.  I want to give some helpful users their props!

UPDATE: The magic number of posts was 5.  I can now see the [helpful][not helpful] links.  (steven r, you get my first helpful!)

The post ratings are gone (thank you Tuiceman) But you have to be a person like full member or Hero and so on. newbies and Jr members don't get that option. So if its ever implemented again you all know. Might want to delete this thread.  :)+

No longer! As long as a user has one post under their belt they can increase ones karma (post rating)!
