Gold star design

Well. Not really. Though I do like the everything old is new again white look I’ve got going on now… if you’re a feed reader and haven’t checked it out – swing by.

You might also notice (though probably not – I never look there) that my sidebar (over on the far right now has a little thing called “Starred”. At the moment it just features posts I’ve personally given five stars. But you can join the fun.

All my posts have a star rating feature. Vote down my five starred ones and start giving out actual stars to good posts and those posts in the sidebar will change. We’re all about reader interaction here at St. Eutychus.

While I’m on the subject of reader interaction – if anybody wants to supply some guest posts about anything that loosely meets the categories already existing – just let me know. Perhaps you’re a professional animator and you’d like to talk about drawing, perhaps you’re a person who designs cool stuff you think is worthy of featuring in the Curiosities column, perhaps you’d like to review books or you’ve found cool stuff around the web, perhaps you’re theologically minded and want to write some great arguments criticising atheism (or another batch of great articles), perhaps you’re my little sister and you already have an account and could post funny puns whenever you want…

Also, while I’m just shamelessly self promoting and writing a post with almost no purpose… are you on my blogroll? Am I on yours? If you’re not on mine and I read you (or I should) tell me. If I am on yours – check to see if it’s going to the old nathanintownsville address – that no longer works.

I now return you to your regularly scheduled fodder.

Like totally

I’ve finally found a plug-in that does what Simone wanted… a simple “like” plugin.

The star rating thing hasn’t really taken off, but I’m keeping it for now. You can “like” a post by clicking the little plus symbol down the bottom.

Star status

Simone has demanded (and installed) a “like function” to operate as a middle ground between casually enjoyment and making a comment.

I like it. I found a “star rating” plug-in for WordPress. I installed it. Now it’s your turn. You need to rate my posts (1 star to 5 stars) as you see fit. Otherwise I’ll just rate them myself and I’ll turn into a five star blogger.

This also meets Simone’s need for a “dislike” option. Because lets face it. Nobody wants one star.
