Plugin rating application
This topic defines the code that shows the rating on the extension topic, as well as provides the twisty with the rate form and overview of reviews.
The template ReviewViewTemplate
is used to include this topic in all extension topics.

Whole integer quantities of stars is much to coarse.
I want to be able to vote in 1/3 increments!!!
its sooooo pretty
Add more stars to increase the granularity of the vote.
You don't need small increments for voting, only for displaying (half stars, stratified results as with Amazon)
All good suggestions, i'm currently aiming at getting this integrated into the extension repository and then we can look at making it prettier with stratified display and using half starts etc in the average rating display.
I'm using ChecklistPlugin
. It stores the data in a table in different topic. Maybe similar logic could be use for this purpose. Meaning save all star amounts (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) and comments into table in external topic. This external topic also keeps the history of changes.
Koen asked me to give feedback. I have done this by creating a wireframe of the (I think) desired interaction. I have not included the stratified display of ratings.

We could do something like eg debian does with packages and some other
systems do with plugins: an optional 'call-home' feature. Eg, in
configure you can enable 'send details about installed plugins to
foswiki.org' (needs to be disabled by default of course, we don't want
to force this on users). The number of downloads detected done by the
configure script can also act as an estimate.
An estimate is the best we will ever be able to do if you ask me..
Ps: if you want, please add these comments to the PluginRating topic..
