I'm the founder of the game cloud and I have a feature that may interest you. I have coded a page rating on each article like at the end of this page. This is how to add this:
This user has been inactive for 12 months or more, and has lost their user page privileges. If you are the user in question, simply undo the last edit to this page when you return to normal article editing activity.
Personally, I find this feature to be rather unnecessary. There is no reason to rate articles (we have various degrees of article statuses that people can work toward pursuing), and I've seen "highly-rated articles" on other wikis be used to justify a featured status, even if that "highly-rated" article is a complete and utter mess. I can't think of a use for this feature, and as our wiki promotes the Monobook skin and simplicity over flashy bells and whistles, then I don't think a rating system has a place here.

Exactly. It's an encyclopedia, not a popularity contest. Just because Ahsoka Tano and breast would inevitably end up with five stars (probably from the same users) doesn't mean they deserve to be highlighted. -- Darth Culator(Talk) 05:35, November 25, 2012 (UTC)
It seems rather redundant, considering the current system where articles are rated as FA/GA/CA by the community. That and there's no guarantee that the ratings would even be accurate. Holocron(Complain) 06:25, November 26, 2012 (UTC)
Sorry, I see no need. -- Riffsyphon1024 09:00, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
The article rating system on Wikipedia is something that's always annoyed me, and I am glad we don't have such a system here. jSarek (talk) 03:22, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
