The title says it all I guess.
I know how to add a poll to a thread, but how do I add something so that people can rate the thread?

Thanks.

Why?

A subjective opinion on how "good" a thread is doesn't seem to me to bring anything of value to a forum.

1. Show Printable Version
2. Email this page

OK I'm wrong, I was sure I saw the option when I was just a normal user. Sorry for the confusion.

No worries, :P but shouldn't the rating stars be coffee beans instead of roseshttp://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon5.gif

They're actually ribbons if you look closely.

I think the reason normal users don't have the ability to do this is to stop every single thread in general help being rated, it would clutter the view etc.

You'll find very few threads that actually have a rating, even the staff don't use it that often

Yeah!

They should still be coffee beans. :P Or maybe Ubuntu logos...

Anyway, something a little more Ubuntuish...

These are called rosettes.

They are a bit tiny so you might not see them well, but here's what they look like in real life:

That doesn't answer the question about whether they are roses or ribbons and why they are Not coffee beans or ubuntu logos.

Right, here's a bigger version of the rosettes used in thread ratings:

I'm pretty sure it does.



We never got around to making a custom icon for that...don't know why.

I checked the link, you'd need to put this into the [img] tag: http://iangrey.org/images/rosette.jpg

I wouldn't though - the image is quite large ;)
