Starting today it is possible to give your rating to a topic. Just below the topic title and before the first reaction in the topic you will find five stars, which are yellow or gray, depending on the rating they have received. All gray stars means that there is no rating yet, as users can give their rating one to five to a topic.
The rating should be seen as following:
1: not interesting - bad topic
2: less interesting - not that good
3: normal - averaged
4: interesting - good
5: very interesting - very good
Remember that users can not rate their own topics of course. Only one vote per topic per user is permitted as well and you are not able to change your rating later on. All votes will be displayed anonymously and averaged to other users.
Rating doesn't refresh your page, so you can do it at any time!
Currently the rating can only be seen on the topic page, but it is our intention to use the rating for some other pages as well in the future. It also depends on the usage of the function. The more people use it, the more useful it will be to implement in other parts of the forum.
