Is that what these little stars are for?

I guess we have to wait and see how they play out.



Stars under someones name?! What are they for? I want stars under my name...



EDIT: Hey look, now I do.

If you can not rate a post, a little bar on the top of the screen says so.


Why do I notice these things?!?!


You have 5 stars under your name DJ. How special. Wow, now I have 3.

$10 says SO won't tell us what they mean.

I'm sure as soon as the boss has it worked out completely he'll update everyone


Anyways I think it looks kinda cool!

Very cool.
hopefully this should bring the posting quality on ATS back up significantly.
I am already clicking stars like crazy.

Wow. Quite interesting.

Just a guess before SO explains anything...

The number of stars under your name = the average number of stars your posts get.

I think.

So according to that little 9 by my name, 9 people rated my posts and the average was 3.

That is what it appears to be to me as well. For some reason, on this thread a few posts came up with stars already highlighted before I clicked anything. I am not sure why that would be, so maybe it’s still not working in its final form yet.

So I guess we have to wait for the official word from S.O. on how to properly use this new function.

And what exactly the stars on the posts as well as the stars in members profiles mean.

Hey Skeptic, have a beer on me!!

Good Job!!



Now if I only knew how to use them proper like.

I really like this!

I just hope people don't get their feelings hurt when people give them a 1 or 2 star rating.

Ok I lied I don't care about feelings because I have none!

But I certainly hope people do not give 5 stars to everyone, or 1 stars to someone just because they don't like em!

EDIT: Would be nice to see a half star rating available (4.5 3.5 ect)

Good job SO I like it, its neat.

SO is apparently still working on it. There is now a number in between parenthesis, just before the stars in members profiles.

Now a little number showed up next to the stars, maybe how many folks have voted on that post, or possibly on all your posts so far. The same number is showing up in the Avatar area as well.

It's all in your imaginations. There are no stars.

Why is it I have to be the voice of dissent..


Honestly I don't think I like these, I mean not only are they yellow (the colour yellow pisses me off),
but they break the flow of things.

Add to that I'm not even sure what they are or why we have/need them.

One thing I noticed already, is that once you cast your vote you cannot recast it at a different number or adjust it. It also seems like it occasionally gets one less star then what I clicked, so if I am clicking three it is coming back with two, it could be I just have bad aim sometimes though…

damn mechanic, you got a new avatar everyday. 5 stars to you!!!

I think that you should not be able to vote for your self either..

Because you could always go back and vote for every post you ever made!...

Hope that did not give anyone an idea..



Also, the system is currently unavailable in PTS and BTS.

You Can Be A Star!

SO does things like this all the time -- just dropping new features in without warning -- and I think it's kind of a fun tradition, because you never know what might be next.


I can only begin to imagine what sort of things he's tinkering on right now in the SkeptiCave...
