New: rate the stories!

You can now rate and every Where Aren't They Now post! Each post has a star system at the bottom, and if I did this correctly you should be able to rate through your RSS reader as well. (Please let me know if this is not the case for you.)

[UPDATE] Um, I don't think you can rate through RSS. Sorry. I'll look into it in the future.

I'm no code monkey so I'm pretty pumped about this. I'd love to know what you think of the stories, and I believe this will make it simpler for you than commenting every time. (You are of course still welcome to do that. I love comments.)

As we start to get results, future readers will be able to search by the most popular stories... so get to rating!

...Please.

I can't rate through Google Reader, but I always have to click through to the site anyway, because the entire picture never comes through.

It isn't working for me either (through RSS). Not sure how to fix that. Is it really frustrating? I don't want to force people to come to the site if they'd rather stay in their readers.

Great idea!...but can't rate through Bloglines.

Yeah, apparently I'm a liar. I thought it said it would work! I think I did it right...

I'll check it out in the future. If anyone has a suggestion as to how to fix that, I'm all ears. For now... stop in once in a while and rate them? :-/

Nah, I don't really care. As I said, I can't see the pics in Google either. My feed basically just exists to let me know you've updated. :)

That's odd-- are you sure it's not a setting you have? I also use Google Reader and my entries come in fully (except for the ratings, now).
