How do I locate 5 star questions?


I read somewhere that posts can be rated? - How? Also How do I find posts that are rated 5 star?

If you see a post that was helpful to you, then you can rate it so.

As for the 5-star question; I do not believe there is such thing on LQ? May be I am wrong.

Where did you read this? Can you post the link?

Upper right. "Rate Thread"

Zero idea what it does though.

I've seen some threads show a rating in the forum thread listing. Perhaps some minimum number of votes is required before it will show up.

I looked at the LQ Search and did not see an option to search or rank search results by the number of stars.

Personally, I don't pay any attention to the stars, but such an option might consideration to be added the the LQ Wish List.

I actually noticed something about this today.

When viewing a forum, you can sort by thread rating. Up at the top where the words for thread rating are, you tap on that to make it your sort option.
