For the Drama Queen / Melodramatic, we need a little bit of code so that if somebody receives the rating then when they hit the "Ratings" tab in the menu and it is shown, a sound file of "Dun dun dunnnnnnn!" should play. :D

Melodramatic is terrible. Bring back drama queen please. I thought the suggestion was actually some sarcasm because of the other gender discussion.

Pardon my ignorance, I've just read through this entire thread, I don't understand the "Popcorn" rating. What is it exactly? I have Post Ratings installed on my forum and it's very popular. I've never seen the "Popcorn" one anywhere else.

I love post ratings, I don't love the clutter they bring to each message box.

I think the idea is spot on and sound, and users love it. The UI is definitely due an overhaul though....or is it? What do you think?

Facebook has potentially made a step in the right direction, expanding the simple and most popular like reaction to show the full post ratings after a second of hovering or long press.

Do we really want 10 colourful icons at the bottom of each post detracting from the text content? Or is it best to have them on show so we can browse each one at a glance before picking the most applicable rating?

Absolutely yes!
I tend to agree with your sentiments on the FB like UI ==> It's definitely a step in the right direction and makes for less clutter.
Post ratings is a great add-on - but most definitely due for re-envisioning of the UI.
