Default Add the GARS ratings average to vB's thread rating display

I'd like to see that when a user "rates" (via GARS) on the review, that it automatically adds the overall average of his ratings (across however many categories you have defined) into vB's thread rating. This way the "stars" would show up in the forumdisplay. Like it?

Not entirely sure of your point here...

Stars are for rating the review itself, wheras the GARS rating is always for rating whatever the review is about.

Main reviewer reviews tasty-trout-in-a-tinâ„¢ and all additional users have the opportunity to rate the product. It's unrelated to how good the article is, especially since the review criteria are the same as the main reviewers (Taste, squidge, lastability and pong for example).

Unless you are talking about having an additional option in gars to rate the review that way and maintain an average reviewer/author score. If so, it should be possible to do that via a module for GARS.

Yea, this could get ugly as you would have to prevent people from rating it via the thread rate option.

It seems like it may be a better idea to be able to access the overall rating %, then you could place that how and where you would want (ie in the threadbit). Then you could just disable rating on threads for GARS forums.

Ill give it a think
