    It's some sort of rating system.

    Several people wanted it. I hesitated a lot to implement it because of the negative respone I might get from contributers. It's very hard to get a fair rating system. A user based rating system would cause a lot of problems since the KM user base is much smaller compared to flash. That way it would be very easy for a contributer to get five stars just by voting a few times or asking some friends to do so. So it has become a moderator based rating system and we agreed not to rate our own contributions.

    If KM users have an opinion on if the KoolExchange needs a rating system or not and why, feel free to share it. Also if some of the contributers prefer not to be rated, you are also welcome to mention it since it's easy for the moderators to clear the rating of a contribution.

    Just an idea

    Wondering if perhaps a feedback system in the form of a bolt on guest book may give contributors indication of requests for further examples or solutions to problems, plus a comment about what they feel about existing contributions.
    ps do I get some extra stars for thisi!!!!!!

    There's three moderators now for KoolExchange so I activated the moderator approval. With an 8 hour time interval an automatic check is performed. If there are new submissions all moderators will get a notification by e-mail about it. So normally a submission will be approved within 24 hours.

    Do you think we help out here as an ego thing?

    Who are the 3 mods?
    What are they looking for?

    No, I don't but there's a lot of KM users and not everyone is the same.
    Besides that it isn't the only reason. Another problem with a user based rating system is that it would require a complete user registration system. It already took me a lot of hours to create the current system. I'm not very eager at the moment to implement one. Third issue is that it will generate more database update queries and data traffic and I'm always trying to keep things as fast as possible.

    I'm one of them. The other two are other KM users.

    Most important just test if it works.
    There's always little things that can go wrong like forgetting to include images a fun file requires, hardcoding file paths etc.
    Besides that it's also a way of preventing abuse. On a regular basis I encounter sites that are abused for promoting some sort of product when unauthorized database inserts are allowed. Especially those guys who are promoting products like V1agra and C1al1s always search for ways to draw attention to their product.

    not sure what that means, as my experience has always been that numerous contributors have been generous in their answers and help.

    In that case drop the stars, as its all subjective anyway, and people are not particularly interested in a 5star solution to a problem they don't have

    why the secrecy?

    I completly agree

    I don't want to start a battle of words and an extended thread, I have already expressed my appreciation of the resource, and thanked you for your time and effort in helping to provide it.

    I just happy we have the resource, Not sure about the star ratings but if it helps know what the mods reccomend maybe it's usefull.

    As for him not mentioning who's doing the approvals I'm guessing its so there is no finger pointing if for instance if a submission doesn't get a high rating. For me I say we wait and see how it goes.

    I hear what you are saying and can agree with it to some extent. You have to understand that although I programmed the KoolExchange web application it's an official KM site. I didn't decide on my own to put the rating system in and I can't decide on my own to take it out. I do think it can help visitors but I also agree its subjective. Maybe we should have some sort of poll here to figure out how the KM community feels about it.

    They have to remain. All exchanges rate. If anyone disagrees with anything there...don't participate. Infighting about anything to do with the exchange risks Lucky Monkey dropping it for causing problems and risks current and future Koolmoves users losing it. We all can't be happy...rules have to be made...and kept...regardless of feelings. Mine, yours, Stokes and everyones collectively. I mention me because my backside is in there putting things in it. I mention you because you built it. I mention Stokes, because like me, he's in there Stokin. I mention everyone collectively because it's all for you.

    Decisions were made...the stars are there...it's done. Now fill it. We cannot risk losing the resource created and all the work to get here for stars.

    Ok lets agree that whatever system we have or dont have is accademic without contributions, and let us get back to submitting. (some files that is, not giving in!)
    and regain the imputus that existed this time last week.
