CCK field for vote and annual-ranking

Hi, everyone:
Recently I need to add some features to a book review website which is built and maintained by myself.
One idea is that every book as a node could be voted by user and the result be shown in an view page, according to the duration(like 2007 vote, 2008 vote.....).

Another idea is that every book node is able to record an annual ranking result from other communities or websites, such that it could show the ranking and time in each node and a view page.

Fivestar Help?

So I'm using the latest version of Fivestar for Drupal 5. When I click the star, I expect the (x votes) number to update, but it doesn't. Is this a feature that already exists? If not, how can I implement it? My JS-fu isn't so great but can't I do something like register a click handler that runs a parseInt on div.fivestar-summary span and then iterates a count +1? I've got a general idea how to do it but the specific implementation I'm not so sure.

Looking for a rating system and contractor

I am looking for any Drupal community site that has a multi-question rating system. Actually, I’m looking for Contractors who have built Drupal communities with multi-question rating systems.

We want to build a Drupal community where the members rate or evaluate services. Not a simple voting plugin where we can only ask one question, but a series of questions. We need to be able to ask several questions and our members will be able to give a numerical value (1-10) AND have the option to comment on each question.
