Post Ratings Discussion -

  • There is a bug with the post editor. Images pasted from other websites from your clipboard will automatically use the [img] tag instead of uploading a copy as an attachment. Please manually save the image, upload it to the site, and then insert it as a thumbnail instead if you experience this.

    The [img] should essentially never be used outside of chat. It does not save disk space on the server because we use an image proxy to protect your IP address and to ensure people do not rely on bad third party services like Imgur for image hosting. I hope to have a fix from XF soon.

Should we have a fish hook rating?

  • Yea

    Votes: 736 86.0%
  • Nay

    Votes: 120 14.0%

  • Total voters


So I'm trying out something that probably wont work well.

You can now rate posts in a multidimensional way. All posts have the "facepunch" bar with different ways of critiquing a message.

You can only rate a post once.
Old likes are now a "Like" rating.
Positive and negative ratings are counted against each user.
If you receive more than 10 negative votes, and that accounts for 60% of all your posts' ratings, it will hide the message.

The system is really flexible so I'll probably be customizing them to each board in the future. As for now I want to see how it plays out.

I really like this, but I fear that people are still going to like the hell out of shitposts and a-logging.
Good news! They already do and this can't possibly work any less effectively than what exists.

What this may encourage, however, is rating a-loggers as "funny" instead of just liking them. I may be able to filter posts by their rating, so you can maybe sort posts by "Informative" rank. Posts that are interesting and helpful won't get rated funny so you can just string those out.


It's almost weird seeing the funny rating as something other than a recoloured
for me.
