Rate DLC Packs

By Rich Stone, 1 month ago
After yesterday's very well received new feature for setting your gaming session availability times, I decided to tackle another popular request from the Site Wishlist Forum - The Ability to Rate DLC.

While this one involved a fair amount of database and code changes, at least I didn't have to convert a gaming session into 108 different timezones, so I have enjoyed today's challenge considerably more than I did yesterday's!


Rating your DLC packs

There are two places you can rate your DLC packs - the My DLC Packs page or on the DLC pack's page itself.

Rate your DLC packs out of 5 on the My DLC packs pageRate your DLC packs out of 5 on the My DLC packs page


DLC Page showing the average rating. You can also rate the pack from hereDLC Page showing the average rating. You can also rate the pack from here


Scores are aggregated on the DLC page itself so you can see the average score given by other users on the site.

I've also added a new Friend Feed notification for DLC Ratings:

I realise there will probably be more developments that lead on from this one (such as a way to sort un-owned DLC by site rating), but that's for another day!

Onwards and upwards smile
