    Post Ratings.

    I have installed this Add On, Im not 100% certain of everything it does yet, but I think you will enjoy using it.

    Hovering over each post will bring up a ratings Bar. On the bar are a number of options which allow you to give the user feedback on his / her post.

    Here you can Like | Dislike | Agree etc etc

    Its quite self explanatory I think.
