More subtle rating indication..

Just as a feature/suggestion... Could a more subtle rating option be displayed in the icon bar instead of the row of stars at the bottom of the post?

For example could the thanking thumbs button be highlighted green if that particular post gets any thanks at all ?

This would mean any post which has any rating will be subtly highlighted with a green icon to indicate that is the post which is had the most's thumbs up on... ?

Or even add second icon next to it,as a indicator of number of thanks received for each post.. Top post could be highlighted green, and even have the number of thanks displayed in the box maybe?

I think it would be a nice option as it would not clutter up the main topics or posts as much by the current rating bar does..

I would like to second this suggestion.
I am getting feedback that people love the feature but the rating stars add an unwanted competitive aspect, are too prominent and the info they provide is unclear. (50% of what?)

I would like to have a way to disable the stars altogether, but I really love this suggestion of just indicating if a post has been thanked at all.

You can disable rating option by switching it off in ACP/Extensions -> Thanks for posts/Rating options -> General options.
Also for every thanked post there's a list of thankers at the bottom, so it's kinda indicated that the post has been thanked.

Thank you! Somehow I had missed the Rating Options selection.
