Ratings are back. Back again. Ratings are back. Tell a friend!

post ratings on member profile About a month ago I removed post ratings. From the stats I could collect, this was an under-used feature, and I wanted to clean up the interface to focus on the important things, the post itself. Also I wanted to see if anyone actually noticed or cared they were removed.

It took about a week before someone asked me. We had a discussion in the OW Facebook group about this, and Max & Cheridan advocated for it to be returned, as well as an anonymous user on Tib’s survey.

So they’re back! You’ll see a 5-star system on every post in a game you’re a member of, and ratings that you receive will appear on your “My games” page.

There’s more info about post ratings here.

Question though…

There was some discussion in the Facebook group whether people should be able to rate posts on games where they’re not a member. This could be good because it could encourage users by getting more good ratings, or depressing if people get bad ratings from people they don’t know.

What do you think? Can we have a vote in the comments below? Just write “yes, free ratingsĀ for all!” or “No, only members should rate!”.

New feature: Rating member posts

Here’s a new feature that we’ve recently added to OngoingWorlds. There’s nothing better than receiving feedback to help you improve your writing. We’ve added a new feature that allows you to rate other posts to let the author know how good it was.

How to rate posts

When you read through posts in your game written by other members you’ll see 5 stars at the bottom. These will show the current rating for the post, showing the average rating that everyone else has given.
