Click the three color circle all the way on the left of the rating line.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

It would be a good idea to have "total votes" right near the rating in each thread.

Still think thumbs up system would be better. Simpler, cleaner, and 100 up votes  tells you a lot more about the quality of a deal than a 5 star rating which might have 1 OP or noobie vote or 100 votes.
Not sure I want ratings on all topics either, just the deal threads.

Is there any way to implement an option to edit rating?

+1
If clicking on that total votes would show a vote timeline (and the member who voted, although there should be an option to vote anonymously), it'd be even better.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I'm not quite sure what the point of stars on non-deal threads are. This thread has three stars - what does that even mean? People only like half the suggestions? Half the people don't like any suggestions? Thread was defective, but replaced under warranty with minimal hassle?

I'm unsure about the utility even on deal threads. Look at the Shutterfly master thread for example - some deals posted there are good, some are duds. What does a full-thread rating accomplish?

And regardless of all this, I think the OP should not be able to rate their own thread, or three-quarters of threads will have a 5-star rating from an average of one vote.

+1 on both statements.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

On PC it shows how many people rated a thread when you hover over the stars I believe.

To solve this and other issues, the list should only include threads that have received a certain number of votes (I say 5).

Looks like you have to rate it first.

If I have to go on a PC, open the thread, and hover over the rating to see how good a deal is, I see absolutely no use for the rating system.

DDF elites can now rate a thread on the 1st page of the thread.
I guess I'm not an elite, cause I dont see it. Screenshot please?
