Feature request: rate books
« on: October 09, 2021, 01:18:29 AM »
Hi community.
Wouldn't it be great if you could rate books downloaded from 1 to 5 stars?
Could be pretty helpful.
Amazon also has a feature to leave a word or two and they also started as a book seller :)

(I know, the admin probably doesn't like Amazon and I totally agree with him but it was just an example)

Also, it could help to keep the library clean if you add a report system for books, idk after 100 reports the book gets invisible and you can check if it should stay invisible. But idk man.

Yes, rating, commenting and reporting books will be pretty useful. We've tried reporting books in the past without much success, but it was poorly implemented. We should give it some thought on how to do it properly and add it to the library.

Something that we could experiment from amazon is to figure out books liked by the same people, so we could group them and produce recommendations on one book to others.

Thanks for the ideas.
Happy reading!!!
