In preparation of a revamp for the Game Guides forum, we have enabled the "Thread Rating" feature on this forum, and will be unstickying any guides. I will be working in this forum from now on to help maintain and update the guides so that you can get the information easier, and faster.

Please begin to rate the guides which you have found most useful! How do you rate threads? Glad you asked!

When a thread is rated, you give it a rating between 1 http://www.ddo.com/forums/images/rating/rating_1.gif (Terrible) and 5 stars http://www.ddo.com/forums/images/rating/rating_5.gif (Excellent). You can only rate a thread once. Thread ratings average out over the number of ratings it receives. You can then sort the threads in the forum view according to their ratings by clicking on the "Rating" sort link in the forum header bar:
http://www.ddo.com/admin_files/64/44/60/20/1153.jpg

To rate a thread/guide, click on the thread as if you were going to read it (if you haven't already) and you will see the "Rate Thread" menu at the top-right corner of the page in the gray bar:

http://www.ddo.com/admin_files/49/05/00/55/1154.jpg

To rate the guide, simply click the link and choose the rating!
[For example: You can rate this thread by clicking on the stars at the top right corner of this post]

Thank you for your assistance while we revamp this forum to make it more useful for you.

Um... perhaps you should have enabled the voting before unstickying the threads...

apparently I'm not allowed to rate anything...

There is no link for me to select a rating...is there a reason for this?

The guides we had were fine.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The rating system has been fixed and should show up for everyone now.

Also, the guides you had aren't going anywhere. They will now just be indexed and organized for easier access. Any guide that was previously stickied will be automatically indexed when the index is posted. The only difference now is that they will be organized better.

Still no rating option. In the area I think it is supposed to be all I have is thread tools, search thread, and display options.

Nope all that did was make me have to change the stupid color back to blue from the horrid orange default.

Just a note, that the rating option will not show up in any other forum but the game guides forum.

We're investigating the issue with some users being unable to rate. Thanks for your patience.
