Hi Guys!

Just as an idea. Perhaps if we could have a plugin to sort listings by rating?
Example:
User hits the 'Sort by Rating' button and it will order the listings by best (highest rated) first.
Advanced:
To be more complex, they could select a check box with 5 Stars (and will show only 5 star listings), and have the ability to check multiple selections (e.g. 3, 4 and 5 starts at the same time).

Let me know your thoughts.

we used to have a similar rating system, it was heavily abused on nearly all sites so was removed. The problem was you have sites not only voting for themeselves but also voting "against" all of their competition every day. So after a while everyone ends up with a lot of 1 star reviews which makes them unhappy and they ultimately remove your link code (its impossible to keep your visitors voting 5 stars compared to your competition voting 1 star).

I can see that being a problem, although I honestly believe my community currently want to see eachother do well and haven't found such issues yet. Maybe there's a possibility to have a 1 vote per IP address? Not sure.
