    We just added a new feature addition to the site called Post Ratings. Instead of just being able to like a post you can now be much more specific and rate the post with a more unique icon/term.

    Examples are: Like, Agree, Disagree, Funny, Winner, Informative, Friendly, Useful, Optimistic, Creative, etc...

    More information on the modification available here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/post-ratings-taking-likes-to-the-next-level.410/

    You can also view ratings you've received/given from your Profile tab.

    You will see the ratings bar pop up if you scroll over the bottom of someone elses post.

    This is really cool! Thanks El Chorizo. This is slightly off-topic but similar so I thought I should ask here. Is there somewhere we can see details about the new "ratings" and "points" and "achievements" stuff?

    After discussing this with El Chorizo, here is a couple of screenshots which give a brief picture of the post ratings and the trophies. For even more info, hit up the link in his post above.

    I can see the dice function being useful - the RPG sections could make great use of it if we spark them back to life

    lol! It does seem a bit intimidating, but it's really just harmless fun. :)

    Cool idea, i like it.
    I also just wanted to say, that "dislike" doesn't get any rating in this screen you posted.

    so is there a way to see all the threads you yourself have started to keep up with them or do you actually have to go find them?

    I can't seem to find that control either - profiles have lists of user posts but not threads.

    To see what posts and threads you have personally been involved in, you just need to go to your profile page and click on the "recent activity" tab or the "posts" tab.

    Alternatively, you can hover over your name until you see the menu pop up. You can then click on "Your Content."

    so I think I found what I was looking for unless it was recently added on. it's under information, there's a way to see all the threads you created.
