Ratings seem like the next logical step. We’ve got Battle Reports now that work, people can read them, and are doing, but now we need something extra. Some sense of community.
But what sort of ratings system to implement. We have a couple of options.
The classic movie rating system, one to five stars with the average being shown to users.
A breakdown can also be used to show how the ratings are spread.
A thumbs up or down just like Reddit and Stackoverflow is quick and simple. Although it lacks the granularity that the five star system has.
Just as Facebook and have a single like button. It’s simple and fast, it also stops reports being voted down and demoralising the author!
What are your thoughts? Which system would you like to see and use?
