Rate discussion thread from 1-5 stars
User A posts a new post. User B, C, D, ... reply. Is there a way for users B, C, D to rank the discussion thread from 1-5 stars, and have that ranking show up in the browse or search hits?
(But, they can only rank it once in total, not once each time they reply.)
I thought there might be an addon but failed to find one. I have some coding experience and could potentially write one if none exists, if you can point me in the right direction.
No such functionality exists. In my experience, this type of feature isn't very useful. I'd recommend something like YAGA instead. Upvotes are a much better mechanism; everyone rates things as 1 or 5 stars anyway.

Thanks Linc, I see now that upvote/downvote is preferable. YAGA was a good suggestion. I ended up going with "Voting" addon as it is simpler though.
