I usually don't go by a thread's rating, preferring to make my own decision. So, for me, the rating system is redundant.

If it is to be kept, it would, IMO, make more sense to remove the anonymity from it, so that the thread owner and the admins/mods can view who gave what. (No idea whether or not this is possible with vBulletin.)

This would assure that someone is not rating someone else's thread with a "terrible" or "bad" vote just to be cruel or vindictive. It would also give the thread owner the opportunity to ask for some constructive criticism from the individual(s) giving those votes.

I think rating systems should be removed altogether.

I also don't see the point of the ratings system.
Quite frankly, I don't even use it or look at it, so it doesn't really matter to me whether it stays or goes, but I can see how it could hurt people.

Like I said on your club, there's just some really sour people on here who just like to bring others down. Since thread rating is anonymous they can rate it as low as they want, and no one will know it was them.. How cowardly. I think we should just remove it all together, because it's just like a running popularity contest.

I understand what you mean. My club is rated 5 stars. But that is because only like 3 people have rated it. I can rate yours 5 stars for you, idk if it'll help though. I also don't think they are very nice. Its way way to put people down without knowing who did it. I am very against bullying, and I think thread ratings is sorta like that. Unless people like it. Its like a popularity thing. I also think the more popular your thread is, or the topic of your thread is, the better ratings it will get.

I don't think it's possible to disable the Rating system on V Bulletin.

The best thing you can do with the Rating system is to ignore it altogether.

It's meaningless.
