Rating System: Topic vs Message ratings Mon Aug 7, 2006 12:14:12 PM#20370Perm Link
I believe that the message ratings should influence the topic ratings that a thread gets...
For instance, if there are 5 posts in a thread and 3 posts have +3, perhaps the topic should be rated to a +2 because of that...
Or, a topic has 70 posts and there are 4 posts that have more than +8, perhaps another point?
At what point does the amount of messages actually play into a topic rating and when does it stop? I don't think topics with less than 4 posts should be able to be rated by the messages alone. I also think that if a really good thread has good information and the posts are getting rated well, the topic should show that.
I'm very open to how the system should work. Any ideas?
2014 is going to be a good year. More content, more streamlining. Be a part of history!
