Star Ratings instead of Bar Ratings?
How would change from the Bar Rating in a thread to a Star rating?

If this has already been covered can some one give me a link?

I think 1 or two users have done this in the past - however the difficulty lies in the fact that it isnt a set 1-5 score rating. You could have an unlimited range of numbers and end up with an unlimited set of star images to display them all.
Plus, the way the bar images are displayed wouldnt work for stars. THerefore you would have to modify some of the code to do this.

I was looking all over GARS for this setting too. The reason I want this feature is the ability to assign whole star ratings to a rating category. Why are there rating images gars_0.gif to gars_10.gif in the package if you can't use the stars?

Those are for the threadbits and work on a basic percentage rate. A rating with an overall value of 25% gets gars_3.gif on the threadbit (if configured as such)
