Description:



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:

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F-2gp.gif&hash=5d1bda6e2f6ac9397121ef45c67bf49d



Note that the ratings themselves can be entirely customised - read on for more :)

Since the above gif was recorded, new tooltips have been added:
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Fa2y6.png&hash=189d369218d5cf4d1fad5e082d8a5f9a




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

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Fb-bg.png&hash=1bca567a0f7148e4de3297a576eb4587



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

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Fv5xw.png&hash=e3670859ccf016471e20a1287ac1da38



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):
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Flbrm.png&hash=8e9e5a2d78ea57a3913839d8b140862a



'List' links to overlay displaying who has rated the post:
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F29up.png&hash=f74a69a90943ec46db7ec13d942294ca



This list can easily scale to large numbers of ratings on a single post without breaking the clean design:
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F-esq.png&hash=85ce4730ac8767c20ad0795420769bb7



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)
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F_bh-.png&hash=03b291f5b880809eda16b1ec9ed31e95



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.
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Fa-be.png&hash=bdc80a4361ecd5dd39fbb14fe5f278c0



Integration with XenPorta's Article comment system is included:

Optional (via style property) total ratings received display on postbit:

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

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

Admin interface:

Easily list/add/remove/edit ratings to personalise the addon to your forum. As well as the rating name and icon, you can customise the order they are displayed in, disable legacy ratings without removing them entirely, choose whether they are considered 'positive', 'neutral' or 'negative', restrict ratings to specific groups and nodes within your forum, and choose for a rating to be available on the first post in a thread only.

Simple options to disable features if needed and generally tweak the addon to your individual needs:

Fully integrated with XenForo's Criteria system - use ratings to trigger Notices, Trophies, Usergroup Promotions and more:
proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2Fy76h.png&hash=7064de25da4cbb4521b0ef20cf64426c




Ability to rate posts controlled by XenForo's permission system:

Daily Statistics integration (see later screenshot)


Other Features:


Highly optimised - adds negligible load time even when millions of ratings are stored. Testing was done on a 256mb virtual machine with 100mbit connection to mysql data files on a remote 5400rpm disk and query cache disabled. The test case is viewing a thread with a variety of different ratings.

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F835h.png&hash=a57a5c7ab8c0b12cd9ca00ab4029352f



In both cases there is a significant error margin on the PHP load time (+/- 70ms) so the value is perhaps of little relevance, but the query time remains +/- 5ms and pretty much identical in both cases.

Dogfood tested - This addon is used extensively on my own forum and has hugely increased the level of ratings (compared to the previous likes system) while not decreasing the level of posting, in fact quite the opposite:

proxy.php?image=http%3A%2F%2Fimgkk.com%2Fi%2F6xas.png&hash=ecd4cfb569fcd7794046f7b6e63a448b



I can say without a doubt that this addon extends the 'XenForo effect' that features such as Alerts bring - it encourages people to spend longer on your site through increased interaction and therefore increases the number of overall posts while decreasing the pointless/low content posts that can be replaced by ratings.


Browser support:

Works perfectly in IE7+ and all the standards compliant browsers.
