Today (Saturday) We will make some minor tuning adjustments to MySQL.

You may experience 2 up to 10 seconds "glitch time" when we restart MySQL. We expect to make these adjustments around 1AM Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT) US.

Yes we are. Rating threads helps search our Google site map algorithm to prioritize which threads are top priority to spider. In turn, this helps insure higher rated threads are visible when users search for information.

Google knows what to do with those? Is that a rel tag or something?

Yes, Google knows how to process Google site maps and our forum software knows how to build them Smilie

Google Sitemap Protocol

Quote:
The Sitemap Protocol format consists of XML tags. All data values in a Sitemap must be entity-escaped. The file itself must be UTF-8 encoded.

A sample Sitemap that contains just one URL and uses all optional tags is shown below. The optional tags are in italics.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
   <url>
    <loc>http://www.example.com/</loc>
   <lastmod>2005-01-01</lastmod>
    <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
    <priority>0.8</priority>
   </url>  
</urlset>

Quote:
The Sitemap must:
  • Begin with an opening <urlset> tag and end with a closing </urlset> tag.
  • Include a <url> entry for each URL as a parent XML tag.
  • Include a <loc> child entry for each <url> parent tag.

Yes, rating a thread/post effects the algorithm used to calculate the priority of the URL in the Google Sitemap.

Cheers.
