Default Re: **PLEASE READ** Rating Threads properly.

It seems really mean to rate someone's thread horribly (like a 1 or 2 star) if they don't like the thread creator or something.

I tend not to rate threads even if I think they're fantastic, just because I would rather rate someone 5 stars or no stars at all. I find it quite hard to decide between a 3 or a 4, so I don't usually do it for those reasons.

Perhaps an easier way to do it might be a Like button like the one they have on Facebook, like a thumbs up kinda thing. And you could see how many thumbs up (how many people think the thread is good) for each thread.

I totally agree with you. Although I don't really mind ratings on my threads and/or pay attention to them, it could possibly make the other person upset to see their threads rated low just because someone doesn't like them. Now, that's just low on the person. xP

I agree. There's been way too many issues with ratings and they make people feel terrible if they get a low rating. I wish that there was at least an option to turn it off for some people who don't really want it.

I agree with this. I think that if people like a thread, they can give rep or subscribe to that thread. If they don't like it, they can flag it or avoid it.
I don't see the reason for ratings. It just becomes hurtful.

My threads (i.e. shops) have been rated down because they're competition to someone else

Default Re: **PLEASE READ** Rating Threads properly.

Well said, Price.
Thread ratings have caused many problems here on WI.
I know that in the GE, unfair ratings have also been made. Because of this, some traders demonstrated their sense of humor and asked that their thread be rated one star. This actually helped, because many people felt bad because of their ratings.

It's the same around the rest of WI, such as with house threads. If the thread isn't rated high, people may feel bad about their skills. Same goes with graphic shops, name shops, ect.

Rating a thread low is just plain mean, in my opinion.
If I really like I thread, I may rate it. And the rating will be five stars.
If I don't like a thread, I leave it at that. Someone has obviously put work into it, and so I don't need to rate it low just to get them down.

Default Re: **PLEASE READ** Rating Threads properly.

Thanks so much for the reminder, Price!
I agree, it's terrible to think a member would give someone's thread a low rating just to be mean, or simply because they were bored. I think if you like the thread you should rate it at the least of 3 stars, or not rate it at all. There's no need to make someone feel bad by giving them a low rating. Thanks again! (:
