Use the ACP Forum Manager and set 'Allow Thread Ratings in this Forum' to yes.

Yup, I have enabled it. But the GARS thread still doesn't appear to have thread ratings.

Also check the ACP Usergroup Manager -> Edit Usergroup -> Can Rate Threads. Example.

Yup, the Can Rate Threads for all user groups are also enabled. But it still doesn't exist for the articles, all other threads have the rating element.

vB sets the following:
Code:
$show['threadrating'] = iif($forum['allowratings'] AND $forumperms & $vbulletin->bf_ugp_forumpermissions['canthreadrate'], true, false);
The vB SHOWTHREAD template contains the following:
Code:
	<if condition="$show['threadrating']">
		<td class="vbmenu_control" id="threadrating" nowrap="nowrap">
			<a href="$show[nojs_link]#goto_threadrating"><span id="threadrating_current"><if condition="$show['rating']">$vbphrase[rating]: <img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_rating]/rating_$thread[rating].gif" alt="<phrase 1="$thread[votenum]" 2="$thread[voteavg]">$vbphrase[thread_rating_x_votes_y_average]</phrase>" border="0" /><else />$vbphrase[rate_thread]</if></span></a>
			<if condition="$show['popups']"><script type="text/javascript"> vbmenu_register("threadrating"); </script></if>
		</td>
	</if>
So if $show['threadrating'] is true (ratings allowed in the forum and members can rate threads) then the thread rating drop down menu should appear. If you are using a custom skin, check the vB SHOWTHREAD template for the block of HTML posted herein.
