Hi @angus, thanks for reply!
My case is:
- Only specific group (staff would be enough, let it be) is allowed to add/remove stars
- Only staff can see stars
- Non-group users should not see any ratings (as this plugin not installed).
The scenario is necessary to rate topics and posts by staff members. It will allow to gather statistics (data explore plugin is used) about the most important conversations, thoughts directions or people. This can help to improve services that we provide to our community via forum.
Unfortunately I had not success to develop this function by myself…
