As part of the Beta of Performancing Exchange, our free classifieds style job and blogs board, we used an AJAX voting mechanism so that members could rate jobs.
We’ve already had a couple of jobs voted to the homepage by the community, but there were negative comments about the value of a voting system for job offers at the beginning, and i’d like to open some discussion on it’s value.
Personally I like it. A well written, interesting job offer can make it to the Performancing homepage without need for me, chris, or any other admin to decide on it’s worth — the community decides (in fact, i’d like to do this for all posts, including forum/blog/etc..).
It also provides a way for bloggers looking for job to quickly scan and discard those offers with poor scores.
What we need now, is to hear what you think, and whether you like or dislike it and why — and whether we should move the system out onto the rest of the site?
