That's very easy to do (flip a switch, more or less) but what do we do about poor articles? How do we surface the good articles?


Remove the 1-5 voting entirely and have a series of checkboxes, something like:

I found this article useful
I downloaded this code
I used (or will use) this code
I recommend this article to others

And come up with a score based on the answers, and the reputation of the member answering them
