Star ratings on forum thread not showing

Hey - any advice about star ratings not displaying on games? I've had a few players tell me they've given star ratings but it doesn't look to be showing http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...t=sleepy+mouse
Thanks

I found them. Maybe you were looking in the wrong place. This is from the mobile website on my phone.

Great - thanks!

Does it show externally to you? From outside of the thread itself?
On other threads I can see how the game is rated before going into the game...not sure it it's because I'm the dev that I can't see it but if others can then that's ok...or if it needs more players to rate it before it shows externally? Can you let me know if you can see it outside of the thread too? If not...any thoughts on that?

Cheers!

Ah, I think I see what's happening. When you see the star rating in the main forum list, that's because people rated the thread itself. It's just a built-in feature of this forum software, and to be honest since we updated to the new style of forums a couple of years ago I'm not even sure where that feature went! But it's separate from the "Rate this App" thing you see at the top of the threads.

If you want to see what I'm talking about, click this link to go to the old forum style, then at the top bar of the first post of any thread should be a "Rate this Thread" drop down option. That's what gives you the stars outside of the thread.
