This is a great point. Webkinz Insider is supposed to be about being kind to each other, and building each other up - - not down. The negative rep bars (I think they were red?) were removed from this site for obvious reasons. They would be abused for sure! The star rating has turned into a way to bring a thread down.
Would it be allowed on this site to go to someone's art thread and tell them that it's terrible? (I sure hope not) I would think that post would be deleted, right? That's what the star ratings say.

It seems that the staff here is really reluctant to entertain the thought of removing the stars. I'm just curious why? It's a cause of embarrassment and hurtfulness to some members here who have put out their art on display. The hurt is obvious. What is the purpose for the defense of the stars?

Closing this thread now as the subject has been very well covered, from all sides.
