Topic Ratings ModAuthor: andy2295
: This MOD allows users to rate topics on a scale of 0-5. Users can rate a topic only once and the ratings for topics are shown on viewforum, viewtopic pages, search results (topics) and mcp_forum pages. Only users who have permission to post in a forum can rate topics in that forum.
Will have an interface to our phpBB3 Advanced Forum Statistics Mod
In phpBB3 you do have a sort of 'hot topics' which are nothing but post-count based topics. So such post-count based 'hot topics' may even spring up from meaningless discussions which continue forever in some topics. The rating system here allows users to rate a topic on a scale of 0-5 according to its worth and usefulness. A user can rate a topic only once. Collective ratings from many users will reflect the topics 'worthy' of being called 'good' or 'useful' topics, and thus distinguish them from simply 'hot' topics'. There is another aspect to it wherein users can rate a topic so low (like 0/5) so that the topic appears 'poor' from the users' point of view.
This MOD does not allow users to rate a locked topic or a topic whose ratings have been locked. In addition users can sort their search results by the topic rating (if show results as topics) and also there is a 'View top rated topics' pre-defined search mode available like 'View active topics'.
This MOD also has moderation control over ratings, a moderator can lock ratings for topics, unlock ratings for topics and even reset ratings for topics.
