    At its most basic level, this addon is a massive improvement on the likes system of XenForo by allowing users to express a wide range of views on a post.

    From first glance it may look like one of those silly addons for moods, points, credits, etc. that really adds nothing of benefit to your forum, but the reality is very different.

    This addon:
    • Increases daily posts (read on for proof)
    • Improves signal to noise ratio; less short/unnecessary posts
    • Improves quality of posts (posters want to avoid negative ratings)
    • Makes lurkers useful for something and gives them a means of interaction
    Like Alerts and similar features, I have found this addon to be a major source of the 'XenForo effect' - people just can't stop using it.

    ___________________________________________________________

    Screenshots & Features:


    Posts interface:

    Hover over anywhere on a post and the ratings bar will subtly fade into view (always visible on mobile devices) helping to reduce UI clutter:

    [​IMG]


    Note that the ratings themselves can be entirely customised - read on for more upload_2018-3-11_17-45-17.gif

    Since the above gif was recorded, new tooltips have been added:
    [​IMG]



    Ratings list becomes more concise by hiding removing the rating names when a large variety of ratings have been applied to a post:

    [​IMG]


    If a post does not already have ratings no solid bar is displayed until it has been rated, to further promote a clean interface:

    [​IMG]


    Both forward and backwards compatible with XenForo's built in likes - legacy posts will have Like ratings displayed (by default) and new Like ratings are passed back to XenForo to handle as actual likes (again by default):
    [​IMG]


    'List' links to overlay displaying who has rated the post:
    [​IMG]


    This list can easily scale to large numbers of ratings on a single post without breaking the clean design:
    [​IMG]


    Users with the appropriate permission can delete any user's rating from the rating list view: (The X button is displayed on hover of each section to reduce clutter)
    [​IMG]


    If you wish you can choose to have messages with more than x negative ratings 'soft hidden'. A user does not need any special permissions in order to use 'Show message'; it is a purely cosmetic effect.
    [​IMG]


    Integration with XenPorta's Article comment system is included:
    [​IMG]


    Optional (via style property) total ratings received display on postbit:
    [​IMG]



    And an alternative way of displaying total ratings received on postbit (via style property):
    [​IMG]



    Your members will find interesting ways of using the ratings system, for example mini polls in the middle of threads:

    [​IMG]





    Members interface:


    Member card integration showing total positive/neutral/negative ratings received by the user:

    [​IMG]



    Profile page integration listing the total number of each type of rating both given and received, as well as total positive/neutral/negative received:
    [​IMG]



    Members list integration:

    [​IMG]



    Online list integration:

    [​IMG]



    Visitor panel integration:

    [​IMG]



    Replacement for Likes You've Received page:

    [​IMG]



    As well as extra Ratings You've Given page:

    [​IMG]



    Alerts/News Feed/Recent Activity:

    Fully integrated with the XenForo Alert system:

    [​IMG]


    Fully integrated with the XenForo News Feed system, which powers Recent Activity both globally and the tab on user pages, and also to users' private News Feeds:

    Wonderful, now I can express an opinion without having to type out how or why I agree or disagree just by clicking a single button.

    I've only ever clicked the like button once before in the whole time we've used this forum. I just don't simply like clicking a button to show my thoughts. I'd prefer to put them into words. For the lurkers is great, maybe? Lazy people rejoice, those who can't type a few words in disagreement can click a small button instead of debating.
    Although when was the last time we even had a debate?

    But guys more importantly I just saw that there is a listing for the most negative ratings. Now this is a problem. If I want to top all the lists, then I'll have to fight to get negative ratings as well. Or should I try and focus on a solely positive rating?
    What a dilemma. I'l have to decide what to do with this.
    Maybe I should just join @Noobs in all the button pressing for now.

    on that thought, can we disable the bad spelling and or dumb button? using them in asylum would be counter productive as that is the place where we do dumb things. i get the idea for bad spelling but i see a potential of it being exploited just to give a member bad rep. like when,, a person doenst like a member and happens to see a bad spelling (like neet spelling, meme spelling like boi, da wey) then boom bad point.

    From memory, I believe it was to Negi for something stupid in the Asylum. I made a big deal out of it at the time since how rare it is I want to like a comment.

    Yeah, it's me.

    Guess the Anime Opening:

    Is she in it?

    When I said that @Sir-Maddy had last been online roughly a year and a half earlier yet we all knew what it meant.

    That's what it was? I knew it was something stupid but I was thinking it was more in Last Person. That does ring a bell though.

    Ha, worked how? I'm not watching anything extra due to her presence. I haven't lost to you yet.


    Also in other news I just saw that the disagree button isn't actually listed as a negative rating. So if I want to get the most negative ratings too I'm going to have to post terrible messages full of horrendous spelling and dumb ideas. Even disliking a post isn't treated as a negative rating. Most interesting.

    I think the idea behind that is for people to disagree with others, without it being seen as negative. Kind of like the phrase "I respectfully disagree." It also limits the abuse to "old," "bad spelling," and "dumb" which most people could just write off as people "jealous" of your rating.

    So there is a new problem with this. We can rate posts now, but we can't rate the ratings. I checked this thread in lurker mode to see what had happened when I didn't have enough time. I saw my negative rating and immediately knew who it was from without even checking.
    How can I like this rating? I laughed. @Negi-Springfield you glorious bastard you. Never change.
    Just noticed that at 1 Negative rating I am now the highest user for negative ratings. Hell yeah, I'm a real bastard of a user now. Everyone better watch out.

    I see, that is a gentlemanly way of looking at this. Rather than just flat out disliking someone's posts without commenting, it is more along the lines of "I see your point but..."
    I can see a lot of fun being had with the dumb button in the asylum. I may not be against that.
