The first in a new set of features which help build consensus and collect “popular opinion” has been rolled-out on usability.wikimedia.org, the workspace for the WP Usability initiative. The ratings tag is part of the new and under-development CommunityVoice extension, allowing an editor to place a ratings scale anywhere in a wiki page, and then users can give 1-5 star ratings. Each ratings scale has a category and title attribute which will later be used by the ratings list tag, displaying top-rated titles in a category. Anyone can view the current rating, however if you are logged in you may also vote.
So head over to usability.wikimedia.org to see it in action and let your voice be heard.
