Starry Starry Night
Back when I initially set this up, the star rating plugin that I used was a top rated plugin that was simple and effective. Over time it became more feature rich. Fortunately after every update it was smart enough to just keep working like it always did. Then the updates stopped… then the plugin was no longer available… now this abandonware is being abandoned by the visitors.
So what? Just leave it there. It’s not hurting anything.
Perhaps not. Hackers are constantly looking for vulnerabilities on this site. Since the star rating plugin was abandoned, it may be possible that a hacker could find a security hole and compromise the site. Also large swaths of unrated content can make a site look all the more desolate and lonely.
Couldn’t you rate them yourself?
No. I never rated the jokes because I felt it would have been unethical. Besides… I consider every joke I publish to be a 10 star joke!
So if you’re wondering what I’m going on about… There used to be a star rating system for the jokes. Only two visitors were using the system, and over time they stopped using it. I’m taking this opportunity to remove the plugin before it becomes a security hazard.
