Hi, I'm writing a plugin where people can rate/rank/grade/etc. whatever they want (in my case, it'll be the movies I'm reviewing on my blog).
What makes mine different from those currently available is that not only will it allow readers to submit their own rating and update the overall rating, but it'll keep both the general public and post author's ratings separate. It'll look something like this:
"Post author rates Terminator 3 as 8.0. 23 readers rate it as 7.0."
What I'm on the fence about is how to implement the reader submissions. I think it has to be 1) a dedicated form at the end of the post, or 2) I can make it a optional field within the comments template.
Naturally 2 will be way more work but it'll look so much better. So I'd like to know which option someone else might prefer since I'd like to release this plugin publicly. Thanks!
