Installing/Uninstalling on a large forum

It is strongly recommended to use the CLI installer/uninstaller.

This add-on alters xf_reaction_content, which can take a very long time for a large forum.

To run the SQL manually, use;
alter table xf_reaction_content
    add index reaction_user_id_reaction_date (`reaction_user_id`,`reaction_date`);

Not sure why this is not part of the core yet. Awesome add-on by an awesome developer! I even use it sort of as a reputation system with the bar in postbit.
This is an essential add-on if you make heavy use of the reactions system. This allows staff members to remove reactions from users, and allows you to assign an arbitrary value per reaction. You can even setup your reactions to display in different ways. Neat!
"Can you please add a ..... rating?"

We've all heard that as forum owners many a time, and with this, the answer is yes! A near infinite number of options for reactions.

Then you add the ability to black/white list, and trigger reactions based on thresholds.

Add to this the ability to allow your users to assist staff by auto reporting items with negative post ratings (automatically too), and you have a highly functional, well written, and extremely powerful addon.

For the price you are effectively getting a group content moderation system, as well as a content ratings system.

NOTE: Currently you can only apply ONE trigger/threshold to reactions. This has been reported to the developer to see if it's possible to trigger multiples (e.g report at 5 reactions, remove at 10).
Very feature rich with a great look. It really is a must have for a forum as users love this feature. The only complaint is that the author locks a key feature (Reactions Given List) and makes you purchase an additional AddOn in order to enable.
Great features in this add-on. More features in this than any other reaction add-on to date. My favorite addition is the click to pull up reactions feature. This has taken the cake on any other reaction add-on. Xon is an excellent developer and always impresses me with his intuitive dedication and updates to all of his add-ons. He may be an inspiring Xenforo Dev one day.
Nice options and natural successor to Post Ratings. The developer has been responsive to my questions and bug reports.
Excellent add-on, does exactly what it says. So many features and easy to configure. The developer is always there with updates and bugs fixes if any.
A must-have if you use the reaction system in my opinion. As always Xon is quick to fix any issues that might come up (and they rarely do :)).
Working great on my XF2.1 boards. Much better then the default XF content ratings, thanks heaps Xon. A+
Great plugin and great developer who takes into consideration changes and improvements. Have recommended to a few people now and will continue to do so.
