Default Unanswered: How do I get rid of the rating stars?

If someone could please let me know how/if I can get rid of the stars that rate a ge, I sure would appreciate it. My rating has changed from yesterday to today, from 5 stars to 4, probably because I have declined to trade. My ge is still a 5 star in my opinion..because I declined a trade is no reason to give a bad rating. Thanks...jkb

I'm not sure if there is a way to disable the stars for rating, but you may want to ask a moderator or admin.

Like Ave said, I don't think we can disable rating stars ..... that'd be a good feature to WI though.
Don't worry about it, ratings are just stars. Do they really define the "status" of your GE?
But I'm sure that your rating will go up very soon ....

Sorry, not an option at this time. Can you see who rated your GE what? I didn't think we could tell, so I wonder why you think it was because you turned down a trade.

Sorry, but you can't...

It would be a very cool feature for WI to add, though

Default Re: How do I get rid of the rating stars?

Can't do a thing. What would be better is for the stars to be based on MEDIAN, instead of average. We were just discussing this on a different thread. This is what I said:

View Post Originally Posted by RedBear

MODE would weigh more heavily on what the large % of people really feel and would eliminate the spiteful ones. MEDIAN, however, would probably be a better representation bc sometimes a thread is given a 1 or 2 bc the person really doesn't like the thread. (For instance, some people hate discussions about hating ganz. So, they may rate the thread a 1 or 2. I would never do that but am sure that others would.)

it seems a wee bit unjust that ONE person can come along and drop a thread's rating by one star and keep it that way for the next 10 ratings or so. i did the math for the mod when i sent my comment but i no longer have the PM. look at FIA's kinzstyle pic thread. what, possibly, could be wrong with that? last i checked, it was a 4. i tried to get it back to five-star but that ONE person was keeping it a 4-star until another four to six people rated it a 5-star. that's messed up.

===========================================
NEW POST WILL AUTOMERGE WITH ABOVE
===========================================

yep, its still a 4-star. its got 28 votes with a 4.36 avg. (that's a lot more votes than it had when i last checked so the math is different but the end result is, sadly, the same.)

click here-->FIA's Kinzstyle Thread, with lots of pics!<--click here

in mathematical terms....

23 people think it should be a 5-star
5 people decided to give it less than a 5-star (WHY???)

FIA's thread's rating does not give a true representation of the community's feelings. Who wins? The spiteful. Using median would prevent that and would be a true representation as the outliers would become, statistically, irrelevant. (say the community really felt that a thread deserves a 3-star, then the outlying five-stars and/or one-stars would become statistically irrelvant when using median.)

in order for FIA's useful thread to represent the community's true feelings, its going to take at least another 5 people to give it a five-star. that could take weeks or even months!

(btw... of the 5 people, at least one of them gave it a 2,3, or 4. if it was 23 five-stars and 5 one-stars, it would only be 4.29. if it was 24 five-stars and 4 one-stars, it would be 4.43.)

Thanks to all that posted; once again the vast majority of WI members have shown kindness & have been helpful. The rating system in theory is good; but, in the hands of spiteful people, can become dangerous. I think that if you had to "own" your rating, by leaving your WI id and a comment as to why you're leaving 1 star (or 5 for that matter), the system might become more accurate. Cowards usually like to remain anonymous, imo. Again, many thanks. jkb

We discussed this at length the other day on another thread, and I totally agree with you the rating system is very unfair, and I think that if someone had to claim ownership to the rating that they gave a person then this wouldn't be an issue any longer. We had some people be honest enough in their responses that sometimes they rate a thread lower purely out of jealousy and spite, terrible thing to do indeed but it does happen. I am sorry someone would rate your ge less than perfect just for turning down a trade, but know this your ge will go back up to a 5 star I am sure some nice people will come along and lend you a hand
