can anybody make a digg styled post voting system

i think this would be awesome to have for vbulletin.

the ability for the users to "digg down" (vote down) people that write stupid posts on forums.




the number is cumulative. people can only vote up or down once.
it would also be cool to have the admins be able to see the TOTAL number of each person. if a person had a really low number they could be a candidate for banning.


also mentioned by caiman here

Find the developer's api or instructions on implementations from digg.com and post it here ...

It could be just javascript; maybe just html.

If it needs instructions, there's room for improvement.
Give users what they actually want, not what they say they want. And whatever you do, don't give them new features just because your competitors have them!

not sure if that will be in the api. basically i am looking for some way to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to a post. the post doesn't even have to disspear like digg does. but rather could just have a number next to it.

basically this system will reduce negativity and disrespect on our forum. if somebody writes something cruel they will have -4 next to their post.

Just use something like:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Than have an AJAX/non-AJAX PHP file that is used to modify that data.

The alter table might be wrong too...

so, you don't want nothing that is Digg related ... you just want a similar voting feature

I'm sure I could build a simple one for maybe... $70. It wouldn't be that hard.

I just can't do graphics.

What's wrong with building it for free and giving it to people?
Like many other hackers do?

Login with test/test to see the full extent of it (feel free to browse around and try to rate posts and see how posts below your minimun threshold looks like and rate posts and what not, it will be deleted before the forum goes live anyways) - It's powered by NuRatings - costs $25 dollars - well worth it

Now that makes the most sense to me.

I think the original poster has a good idea here. By not associating Digg with vBulletin, it's a good thing - otherwise people will be redirected to Digg.

For kicks, I may work on this. How are the ratings done? Is it capped at 5 positive / negative?

edit: hmmm, im not sure what the best way of limiting the vote to once per user would be.

I am thinking that there would be a seperate table with a field for the post id and another field containing the user id's that voted already. When a user submits a vote it would check against the table before processing. How would you store the various user id's? Would you serialize the field somehow?

Is an INT that gets added/removed Reeve. Pretty easy.
It can go up to +/- 100000000

Use the IP, like in the VB vote system.

Yeah, I probably spent around 10 hours or so editing templates, phrases, images and all of that shabang. Would probably take someone who actually knows what they're doing a lot less time though And I also had to do more or less "double" work with the templates, since I had to modify GARS templates as well to get it working properly there.

All in all, I still think it will be worth it once I open up the site though It's a pretty cool feature, which I'm sure you'll agree
