Hi,

I have a small suggestion for rating of the articles in the Article Knowledgebase.

Currently the recommendations given by readers are "Yes, this article is well worth reading," "Yes, this article is worth reading," "I might or might not recommend this article" etc.

I would like to suggest rating the articles on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 as the highest rating and 1 as the lowest. The number of users who have rated the article could also be indicated.

e.g. The recommendation next to the title of the article would be

Rated 4.5 by 100 users

or

50 users have rated this article 2.5

I have seen this way of rating used for articles appearing on online newspapers and find it better than the present way of recommending articles on ProZ.com.

Best regards,
Niraja

Niraja,

I like the fact of knowing how many people have read a given article, and the rating would be nice too, or some kind of statistics about it.
