    the news rating may have more benefit that rating in any other forums except the heavenly visions/echoes forums(but then it can also hurt people's feelings if the ratings are low on their work)

    I guess they are there to let users know how good or bad people think a thread is without going in themselves to find out..... lol

    Well how do you rate them? If there's a button it isn't big enough cause I can't see it.

    wait a second, can you vote only once each thread or can you vote every post?

    I think I found a minor bug.



    If you make a post, and forget to vote, but you wanted to, you have to make a second post in order to vote..

    If you go back to edit the post, just to vote, the option to vote isn't there..

    You can only vote once per thread right?

    It seems like it would be more useful if you didn't have to post to be able to vote...

    It might be more productive if anyone that reads it could vote- don't know if it's possible though..
