This does add a lot to a forum system, when forums get large (as some of the ones here do) then this means a lot of calls to the database for each post - which can easily be up to 20+ a page (some users could go overboard and thank every 'good' post).

Then with having 20 per page loading, for a few thousand forums running at once - this becomes a bit cumbersome.

As Zudane says there is an issue here, in so called 3rd normal form this would be a table linking users to posts. That's a scary prospect, often there are clever ways of beating the performance issues of some 3rd normal form database schemas, but much less so in a "many to many" scenario.

I have actually made a commitment that now we have oodles of server power and a totally free hand with phpbb2 (as it is no longer officially maintained so we can do as we like) that I will reconsider things that might once have been rejected on performance grounds, but I can't see how this could be included in this exact form.

However it might be possible to modify it. For example if a post simply showed a "thanks" rating and not names unless something clicked to see the names, then all we have when showing posts is one extra database field for the post. That is trivial!

Cool, so it is possible then, but not as in depth as the example i gave? if you simply 'thank' that post then it could just be added to the users tally of thanks without bothering to update threads and stuff like that? (that is why i thought the Karma thingy could be adjusted to do that rather than it being attached to the user it could still be attached to the user but 'via' the post.)

i just wanted to be able to give the ability for people to have actually contributed a really good post to get credit for it so that others that simply post pointless things don't get rewarded! is this the bit you mean ids trivial!? could it happen!? when!! i get very excited about trivial things!!

Thanks as always for your kind support.

Dave

I am quite keen on this one, but we still have a few more weeks of sorting the new servers out before looking. At new code.

Just in case another view counts   we have been asked for that sort of button to be added too. Just a way to say "thanks" for a good post and nothing more  

I have been trying to implement the Karma portal and changing the text to say "thanks" instead of "Karma" but I am not sure it works the same as a "Thanks" button would. So happy to wait for now and tell the wolves on the forum that it is in the pipeline

just wondered if this was likely to happen now the servers have had time to settle down? i'd love to see this feature, especially if its quite easy to code?

Best

Did I mention the new server arriving today? or the one installed a month ago?

Basically we are swamped with work and then some at the moment I'm afraid.

Hi,

I just instaled ADDRATING to my forum (Not KARMA) even if its the same thing, I just prefer add rating since its a rating feature I need.

Everything works find except one little detail, but it is important for the purpose on my forum.

The default setup is supose to show the average of rating, but what I get on my forum is the last rating image.

Yes I have set to no in the portal option "last rating only" here's the pic...




So is it something I can fix myself ?? if so how please ??

Thank you !!

The key will be the profile fields set for display, perhaps you have ADDRATING_LAST set to display and not ADDRATING?

thats kind of weird.. I didnt create ADDRATING_LAST, it created alone itself...

anyway.. I think I know whats the reason of this... I thought about it just after posting... I think it doesnt show average cuz im the only one who rated the user... it needs to have more than one user to rate to have an average.

Will rate with editor to see what happen... brb to confirm

Yep... I been searching for this problem for at least the last hour and a half to  find out everything was perfect from the beginning lol

The average does work when more than one user rate !!

Thank you for the fast answer once more !!

Sorry for keep going on........... any updates? would it take you guys a lot of work? is Christmas time busy or quiet... I can't work that out! ;-)

i'm not sure if this thread is a similar request?... I would still rather thank/rate the post and that attributes to the user that posted it...?
