The problem with writing articles is that it's very difficult to understand what it is that interests YOU, the reader. I can be slaving away, writing article after article, but if you don't like them, the only way I could find out is via comments or emails received. It's not easy, and not exactly user friendly.
Access statistics is one way. It'll show me that an article is popular, but it'll not tell me if you liked it (for example, people could be accessing an article because they don't like it..).
So, to make things easier, I've added a rating system from Js-Kits.com. This very easy to use rating system allows you in one click to tell me what you thought of the article. Click on the right star group above each article, and you'll cast your vote immediately.
I can then see if the article was of interest.... and hopefully prepare other ones like it.
