    I wish to have my blog readers able to "karma rank" other people comments on post.

    (such as in "big nws paper web sites")

    Is there a way or plugin to do that ?

    There are a few plugins for rating posts, but still no plugins for rating comments. Anyone working on this? Anyone find any?

    I'd love a plugin that not only let users rate comments, but let users SORT comments by rating.

    Or, one that colored the background of comments depending on their rating: high-ranked comments are highlighted, and low-ranked comments are slightly greyed-out. This lets readers skim through comments to quickly find ones that the rest of the audience thinks are attention worthy.

    Anything like that out there?

    I too would like to know more about being able to rate comments! I think it would be a fantastic feature. If you hear of anyone working on it, keep this post updated. I would even be glad to help out.

    Apparently not - I got a whole lot of crickets chirping in my post asking about a Digg or Slashdot-style comment rating system.

    It seems like there's a great deal of interest in it, though. Maybe someone with a lot of time this summer can hook us up.

    I guess there's nothing, then! Great.

    I was just looking for this myself. I wanted to find a way to allow people to rate comments.

    Hot off the press;


    I haven't officially released it yet, but if someone would like to give it a try and provide me some feedback, I'd be obliged.

    Working example here:
