Default Forum Profile Integration

I've been working on integrating some VGMdb stats into the vBulletin profile pages. Now, if you view someone's profile, you should see 2 new tabs:
  • VGMdb Ratings
  • VGMdb Submissions

The VGMdb Ratings tab contains some statistical information about the user's album ratings, and also a link to a single-page sortable list containing every album that user rated.

The VGMdb Submissions tab just lists the number of submissions, broken down between Accepted, Pending, and Rejected for a number of different categories.

There are still a couple of things I need to do:
  1. Allow the user to change votes on the full list (probably need Blah's help for this one.)
  2. Add a link to view all pending and rejected edits.

So, if you have any comments or suggestions for the profile integration, please post them here.

Amazing implementation and work.

I have seen it earlier and since then I noticed that you now implemented a graphics chart concerning the ratings, much better and easy to check all at once.

Many thanks,

YES!!! I've been waiting for a ratings page for so long. Now I've been able to go back and fix all of my test ratings and assign new ones. I would like to see a way to change one's own ratings from that page, as well as provide a link to one's own ratings page in the user link list in the top right of the site (e.g. "My Ratings"). Eventually, it would be cool if there was some integration between the collection page and the rating page, but this is the most important thing. Thank you, so, so much!

Nice, that ratings graph is pretty slick! (even if that feature is a bit hidden/buried).

Any particular reasoning for using Flash instead SVG for the graphs?

Well, it was an easy free-to-use graphics package that Blah found and installed for the year statistics. I used it because it was available. You should consider everything that I do a prototype that will be polished/optimized by someone more knowledgeable later on.

Does IE even support SVG natively? I used Flash since it's supported across most browsers. There's also the Google chart API, which outputs images.

I added the histogram to the rating page, since I think it looks good there. I've also included a link to the ratings page on the little navigation bar that let's us switch between browsing someone's collection, sale list, and want list. Our vBB profiles seem kind of remote from the way we normally interact with the site, so this should be a better integration.

That's what happens when a 5-disc soundtrack has 4 hours of filler. Anyway, I don't consider 3 a "bad" rating.
