Post Rating System (PRS) allows users to vote on a post or topic using a intuitive 5 stars interface, that doubles as a display. Its a way for users to communicate to each other how they feel about each others posts. And a great tool for moderator who like to assesses users contribution to the board. The mod aims to be a flexible one size fits all, easy to install.
It has a number of modules (karma, shadow, penalty and modpoints) that can be enabled or disabled separately. The karma module calculates the karma of users based up on the recent rating they received. The shadow module can ingeniously determine what users would have voted. The penalty module helps prevent abuse by disallowing abusing users to vote. And last but not least, voting can be restricted to posting users though the modpoints module.
The karma module provides the (weighted) average rating over a period that fades out by dividing this period in to intervals. This way the youngest interval has a greater influence athen the oldest. I.e. from now to 30 days ago has a greater influence than 30 days ago to 60 days ago.
The shadow module is a system that figures out what your users would have voted, by comparing voting history of users. The penalty module is a system that blocks users who give scores that lay out of the normal spectrum. Users who do this stuctualy lose there voting rights.
The modpoints module contains a way for you to rewarding users who post. Users need these points to be able to vote and can collect them by posting. The number of modpoints one gains by writing a post can (optionaly) be based on the rate their post get.Return to the top
