Wanted to let you all know about an exciting new feature that's coming to the forums later this week...the ability to rate individual posts.
We've made the decision to add this feature because it will do much a better job of determining the best quality threads via ratings (which will in turn appear on the homepage) in a more accurate way, as opposed to an overall thread rating.
Please note that this feature will NOT change or affect the ordering of posts or threads, as we will never get rid of the ability to view forums by the latest added view. It will simply act as a way for you to determine the best quality threads and the ones that show up on the homepage.
In addition to this heads up, we're looking for some people to help us test this feature and provide feedback, so if you're interested, please send me a PM.
