Rating Feature Now Available
I installed some post rating plugins to the site. Now you can rate posts on a scale of one to five stars. The highest rated posts are aggregated in a section on the sidebar. Also, the most rated posts are also aggregated in a section on the sidebar. I've been wanting to implement this feature for a while, because it makes the site more interactive and interesting.
Look at the bottom of each post to see the stars. Simply select the number of stars the post deserves.
The highest rated and most rated posts appear in the right sidebar.
Update: No one rated anything, so I removed this feature.
