    As we continue to grow... we are looking for better features we can offer our value members. After looking at multiple "Like" addons and custom options that was by far the best one I could get. Let me know what you think about this feature!

    At its most basic level, this addon is a massive improvement on the likes system of XenForo by allowing users to express a wide range of views on a post.

    Hover over anywhere on a post and the ratings bar will subtly fade into view (always visible on mobile devices) helping to reduce UI clutter:

    Note that the ratings themselves can be entirely customized - read on for more :)

    Since the above gif was recorded, new tooltips have been added:

    Ratings list becomes more concise by hiding removing the rating names when a large variety of ratings have been applied to a post:

    If a post does not already have ratings no solid bar is displayed until it has been rated, to further promote a clean interface:

    total ratings received display on postbit:

    Members will find interesting ways of using the ratings system, for example mini polls in the middle of threads:

    Member card integration showing total positive/neutral/negative ratings received by the user:

    Profile page integration listing the total number of each type of rating both given and received, as well as total positive/neutral/negative received:

    Members list integration:

    Well, since it was said to let you know what I think (and since no one else did), I'll chime in :)

    I don't like it. :) lol

    Simply put, it causes more problems, more pride, more envy, more crap, all in the vein of "fun." The issues I just wrote may not be issues now, but in time they will be. I personally don't care how many likes or points or gold stars or cutie smiley faces I get or someone gets; those statistics are unimportant; so for me, the new feature clouds what people post, and clutters the area... even if it DOES hide itself.

    Can we somehow rate the ratings? Now that would be amazing.

    So this is what it feels like to live in the matrix.
