Default Problem with member's rating in threadbit

Hi Geek,

I encountered one bug regarding rating system in GARS. When I have set in admincp for specific forum "Author can post ratings" to Yes and then someone will rate whichever thread from this forum before (this is important - it must be before) its author, it will show in threadbit in postition for fulfilment of condition $thread['member_rating'] always maximum stars (5) and in description ("alt") is always that thread was rated by x users (correct information) but with 100% rating regardless of real rating and how many users rated. But it shows correct informations about overall member's rating in showthread all the time (so problem is only in variable which is using for threadbit).

And if I set in admincp "Author can post ratings" to "no" for that specific forum after rating and then execute Re-Sync process of ratings, it will suddenly show correct informations in threadbit (number of stars and text in "alt" too). So there is no way to show correct ratings in threadbit with option "Author can post ratings" set to Yes and with actual data. I tried it also in my others sections powered by GARS (to include author's rating as well), but with same results.

I was using GARS for purposes where I didn't need author's rating so far, but now I want to use GARS for new forum for new purpose, where I need to include author's rating as well (and where I need to represent ratings of threads in threadbit). But thanks to this bug users have to proceed according to new rules of that forum (by other words author have to rate his thread together or right after its creating) otherwise there will be error and older ratings than from author will be deleted. And I think that we all know very well, that it is impossible to secure 100% observance of written rules regarding intended functionality of some section/function :-).

Could you please look into this? I am using vB 3.6.7 PL1 and GARS 2.1.8c.

GARS is really great adition to vBulletin, but it needs some little tweaking to be really perfect ;-).
