Some more improvements to the site were made today:
- New Ratings system. A new rating system has added where you can rate posts in many different ways. Such as "Agree"... "Disagree" ... funny etc.
Use this menu to add them:
By giving ratings it'll increase the engagement on the forum and more people will read and respond to your own threads.
If 5 people "Like" (thumbs up) a post. It will be automatically featured on the main page of the site.
- New user card. These ratings are incorporated into your info card like such:
The green is for positive ratings, grey for neutral, and red for negative.
They are also displayed on your info card next to posts like this:
The green bar represents 100% positive ratings.
The ratings system is a great way to increase engagement on the forums so people will respond more to your posts and everyone can have a much better conversation.
