    Default Positive Feedback?

    On most forums, there are little icons at the bottom to allow signed-in users to "Like", "Agree", "Disagree", and so forth. The Microchip Forum has a 5-Star rating for individual posts. Even the ME-Labs PBP Forum has a "Like" button. There are some pretty insightful posts that I would like to acknowledge and give kudos to without creating a new post to the thread. Can something like this be added?

    I can add such a feature.

    A simple feature to let users rate posts from other members.

    By providing feedback on posts members can help identify the best and worst posts in a thread allowing future visitors to easily hone in on the best information.

    customisable options allow

    - Yes/No or Ten Point rating scale options.
    - Possibility to turn off negative ratings for a positive only system.
    - The ability to decide which forums are open for helpful answer ratings.
    - The ability to audit the system and identify top users and potential abusers.
    - The ability to ban specific members from using the system.
    - Integration with the reputation system based on post ratings.
    - Integration with a user's profile to display post rating history.

    I am busy right now, but i will implement this as soon as i get time

    Thank you Lester! Let's see how it's received. Haven't gotten that far yet, but did you make a General Forum announcement?

    I've been trying to over-use it to let the productive folks know it's there.

    The green thumb does not work for me. It says I first have to register. I'm registered and signed in.
