I'm currently working on a design project for a product's 'Trending' feature. Currently we have a Q&A Forum that will display small rating stars next to each topic.
We are looking into ways to leverage this/redesign this and use it in other areas of the product. The other areas could be the user profile area, Ideas, Search Results...etc.
Beyond the typical Google search research that I am performing, I wonder if anyone has any good blog posts, books, etc.. that they could recommend.
