I'm sure there are mods (or even part of IPB ver 2 which I will be upgrading too) have the option to rate threads so that could be considered at a reviewrating system.
Bad idea imho. I moderate a few online forums (incl austalia's largest forum) and the whole "rating" thing, while sounding like a good idea, just doesn't work.

On the other hand, rating of beers by members in the recipe database i think is good. There are a few recipes in there that i have been reviewing for my upcoming first AG, but to be honest, i have no real idea if they are good, or crap.

Ratings are good for high trafficked sites that get a lot of crap posted to them. I don't think this site needs it.

Keep us updated on the t-shirts, fiscus! I wouldn't mind one myself.

Paddy's brewery has them.
They call them a girafe.

Gerard, will you do those for $1 per girafe on tasting nights ? :D
Seriously though, you'd need a couple of thirsty mates to help out before it got warm/flat.

Perhaps and it is probably not that much to add but given how long I am taking to get teh basics working I think I will shelve the review side of the beer DB for now so I can at least get that running (shouldn't be that long).

Once that is up and running we can open up for enhancements .... anyway this is digressing from the thread a bit :p

Very keen on shirt + glasswear - maybee even some tacky bumper stickers :) not a big one on em but for home brewing why the hell not!

Will sort out a paypal donation in the next week too :)

Dane, I'm more than happy with the way you've done the ads - as you say anything is better than pop-ups.

Mind you, I've just had a chuckle when I clicked on the following link that was labelled Yeast Infection :D For I moment I was reminded of a girl I knew some time ago........

As you can see I am trialing some ads in the vacant space at the top of the forums. I had always set this space aside to advertise merchandise (soon) so I just wanted to see if ads were more effective up the top.

A click a day keep the webhost's bills away!!

bit too wide ... squishes the recent posts bit. Can you stack the two adds one on the other?

Any progress on the shirts & glasses?

Pulled it down to one ad, yeah on a 21" u don't have the issues but at a smaller res it gets a bit squishy.

I'm awaiting to recieve samples and then we can start placing orders.

Strill investigating glasses, to see what the best method is, but it's all happening.

Perfect christmas gifts!! Might ever put some Christmas AHB giftpacks together :)

Cheers,
BarneyG.
