    OK, I think we finally got most of the bugs out. Please give this new rating system a try and tell us what you think. Only registered posters can vote each post 1 to 5 stars. We total up all of the ratings that your posts receive and the average appears under your profile photo in the left side of your posts — that’s your ratings.

    SORRY about all of the goofy problems we had at first with this system. Let’s see how it’s working now. Please give us your helpful feedback. TX

    I fucking hate it. Hate it. If you didn’t understand… I HATE IT.

     

    Either get rid of it or give us an option of switching it off.

    I get the intention behind it but at the end of the day this is pretty useless. One can (and probably will) give one star to a comment/post only because he/she doesn’t agree with it, not because the comment or post in question is offensive or unnecessary. And for each user to have a rating too… That’s so strange and not something I would expect to happen here.

    I’m a four-stars member of this forum because other people say so? Tye is a two-stars rated user because there are people out there who probably didn’t agree with his opinion a couple of times? What about Phoenix LOVE? One-star rating? This quantification of our presence/value in this website is borderline offensive. It’s all very subjective. I’m all for a thumbs up/thumbs down system but this one is just not for me, you know? It feels kind of unfair. It would be nice if we could have the option to turn this off in case this whole rating business ends up being a permanent thing.

    I’m sorry if I’m coming across as rude but I seriously think this is beyond unnecessary and will only serve to fuel existent feuds, even though I do know this wasn’t at all the intention that you were trying to transmit.

    No matter what I say, people who hate me, will give me only a star everytime I post something here. This rating system is terrible…

    I think it will make the site much more cliquey. Some of the other suggestions work the same way without fostering a negative environment…

    Yay for the three stars. Speaking our minds and eating whatever we want. 

    But seriously though. I don’t like it. I’m in another forum called no-homers.net and they just have a thumbs up/down option. Why can’t we just have that?

    Eh it’s ok but the problem is I don’t think any one cares what rating they get. And it looks like its not very popular.

    Something tells me these stars won’t last that long. Let’s treasure them for the time being. 😉

    You’ve pretty much summed up exactly how I feel about this. Last time I checked I had a 5-star rating under my name (probs cos only 1 person voted, maybe?) but I still think this system is ridiculous as it discourages honest, balanced online discussion. Imagine how milquetoast our discussions will become if people are afraid of being unpopular on these boards. Personally I’m against a thumbs up/thumbs down system too – would we merely nod or shake our heads in a normal conversation? Speak up! 

    I see your comment has 5 stars from 11 votes, Tom. Add a virtual 12th to that from me, though I won’t vote on principal.

    Thank you so much Eddy. I do think the thumbs up/down system is more harmless but that is not up to me. I’m staying loyal to GoldDerby with or without star ratings.
