Those are an option that come with the "like" button mod I coded in a while back... when I installed it, I had turned that off since I don't much like the thread ratings idea, but I guess one of my fellow admins sneakily turned it on :laugh:

Haven't really checked it (since I hadn't planned on using it) but I think it works by calculating the number of liked posts in a thread : the thread with the most likes in it gets a 100% rating, & the other ratings are calculated relative to that

well, i happened to notice it, but it was just a few and didn't pay much attention at that time (thought maybe some weird glitch) :dunno: . now i see it on even more, and was just wondering what it was about. now i understand the correlation of how the percent is calculated and what it means.

doesn't tell you much though when you have a thread that is pages long with lots of likes to a thread with only a few posts and likes from all posters.
then it doesn't tell you likes as a percentage of posts for that thread. (that's if I'm understanding your explanation correctly)
just as compared to the spammiest threads.(which i don't think is as informational) :laugh:

so, was this turned on to gain some actual information, or was it just to see if anybody was paying attention? (or maybe a little ocd or anal retentive? :lol1: )
