Additionally: topics can be split or merged - how should existing ratings then be treated? Details, details...
disable this function for rated topics.
I must say, I also thought about when
members shall be able to rate a topic.
There must be some input already, before you could decide whether you want to give it 1 or 5 stars.
So in my eyes, the only solution here is to specify from which page on the rating would be possible.
For ex. only from page 5.
That would mean, members would have to read the first 5 pages, before they can click the 1-5 star button.
And if a topic stays under 5 pages, it won't be rated, as it is not relevant enough.
Depending on which subjects you discuss in a bulletin board, the quality of topics is very important.
Because topics can easliy become 100 pages long and more; therefore having some quality 'filter' here, before starting to read, wouldn't be that bad idea.
At least as extension.
