File Ratings Added to Directories
Posted by Michael on 16 October 2004, 00:26 GMT

You may have noticed that all directories in our file archives now contain a column titled "Rating." For each file, there is a graphical indicator of that file's rating. The number of illuminated bars directly corresponds to the file's numerical rating, rounded to the nearest integer. The bars are color-coded to help you easily ascertain ratings at a glance. You can also click on the column heading to view the files in a directory sorted descending by rating. For an example, look at TI-83 Plus Assembly Games (Ion). Feel free to ooh and aah but most importantly, rate files!

Update: Apparently a few people are raising an issue that only the top screenful or so of files in the example directory have been rated. This is because the link is to the directory sorted by rating. Let's read articles more carefully, please.

Ha! If you look down the list of some of the directories, you wont see but like 2 ratings. We seriously need to start rating files.

Honestly, in the directory given as an example, all the files visable from the top had ratings, and like 2 afterwords.
Now while this doesn't indicate NO ratings after the start, none have more then 4. And this isn't a "basic" directory, so... get rating, allready.

I've 2000+ files that I can rate now. Seeing how I screenshotted them. (I'll get around to it. Is their some sort of quick CGI thing that I can just enter the Program code into and have the rating equal to something? /cgi-bin/ratefile.pl? id=732&r=3 )
***Just noticed that 83+ and 84+ demerged.

html? what's that. naw, I looked at the file review link then decided I should use ratefile.pl in place of review.pl but use ?f=ID and simply add &v= seeing how "Vote" was being thrown around so much.

HTML: Hyper Text Markup Language. Unlike most languages which use commands such as 'cout' or 'document.write' or 'print', HTML use a series of tags, such as <HEAD></HEAD>, <H3></H3>, and <A HREF="link">link title</A>.

I might have been. Although it HTML is pretty vague these days. If you stick to "a script thingy where you enter tags and stuff" then your on your way to success. But, several organisations and "groups" will approach you saying "You must conform! Our HTML is the true HTML!"
XHTML = {insert version number}Hyper Text Markup Language.

ti-83p and ti-84 didn't actualy demerge. They are just 2 separtate links to the same directory. Which is the ti-83p directory. I wonder why they did do that though.

82/basic/games has none ;-)

Great job, the rating system looks very nice! :)

Neither does v200/basic/games...

I'd rate my own Basic programs (TankWars, ImpQuest), but I feel that'd be cheating...

So rate them 10's for me. :)

You should try to rate your own files.

Hint: it won't work.

In addition, Magnus made the rate.html directory lists so that the files with no ratings as of yet are sorted alphabeticaly, below the files with ratings.

Could you make it that if I'm viewing a rate.html page, the links to other directories also link to a rate.html page? So once I've selected sort by ratings, it kinda persists? Same might be good for other sorting options.

I like that idea, who knows. I am thinking it would be hard to do without getting defaults set through your ticalc.org accounts.

I don't think that was what he was saying. I think he wants the Parent Dir link on /83plus/asm/games/ion/rate.html to link to /83plus/asm/games/rate.html, not /83plus/asm/games/ion/, as it does now. Any directory links on rate.html pages should link to other rate.html pages, not the folder roots. I'll ask Magnus... it shouldn't be a big deal.

He explains it much better than I do.

The same logic could apply to sub-folders (not just parent folder), and also for other sorting methods.

I understand completely what he was asking, but not knowing much about the ticalcs actualy system I believed it would have to involve our accounts to implement. Should have sent that email to everyone and not just Magnus.

So yeah basically, the sorting from each directory should remain the same till you change it. Could probably be done through cookies...

That mail was sent to the staff list, not just Magnus, though he's the one who usually takes care of such things. Also, it won't require a cookie, just a little change in the way the pages are generated. Why do something with cookies when you can do it server-side?
