This is similar to a comment because it's a way for users to give you feedback. Giving a candy / voting for post the express if they've liked the post or not :)
Hope you understand :)
Is this the same as post karma?
IMHO Karma is how author of the post fells…
This is what Greymatter called Karma though, and it was also the most turned off feature in greymatter. I don’t think this would be overly useful. Maybe as a hack, but not in the default installation.
from the b2 forum:
“I was wondering if b2 could recieve such a feature like
Greymatter’s Karma and Xanga’s eProps… they are
voting “links", which, for example, when you press
a plus sign
(+), it goes up which means the entry is good, and when you
press a minus sign (-), it goes down, which the viewer rates
the entry as bad… so, is there such a hack for this?”
Yes François, it’s a way for users (not author) to say if they like or not the entry. Then people (just admin ? author ? everybody ?) can sort entries by popularity.
I do agree graham, this is not a urgent or very useful feature : so it can be a hack/plug in first and then integrated to the “core” but disable by default.
i never use any of those things, simply because i don’t see the point. am i the odd one out?
