I’ll add it as soon as she resets my account there (I already filed a request).

I lost my u/p combo.

Re: wlk_helpful, a rating plugin

well yeah it’ll be great to have it on txp.org, but I meant using it on txp.org. We could use it to rate plugins and provide a most popular section.

Re: wlk_helpful, a rating plugin

Walker, I’ve reset your TXP.org password, check your email ;)

The “js” link on http://walkerhamilton.com/wlk_helpful is broken (typo)

Perhaps for TXP.org a time dependant rating system would be nicer, because new plugins are released that are better than previous plugins. If you’re ranking on vote ratio (positive votes divided by total votes), that would work, but only if people actually vote negatively. I suspect that you’ll see a lot of positive votes and that causes trouble when comparing old with new plugins, because the old once have had more time to gather votes and they did so in a time when there was not as much competition.

Re: wlk_helpful, a rating plugin

Hey! Ya know what!!? I’m going to offer two different options of computing rating:

  1. Vote ratio
  2. vote positivity minus vote negativity

Re: wlk_helpful, a rating plugin

Ok, added ratio rating as an option (v0.2)

Feed it to the txp:wlk_helpful_ajax tag using which="ratio"
