Default Re: Thread Star Rating

This is a very good idea but if you want to give a reason, you could just post your rating and why. Also, if someone added this, some people might not like it. But I agree with Webberlily.

Yes, the reason I asked was because of threads with multiple owners, how would the co-owners view the thread ratings if the actual thread owner isn't available or inactive for some reason?

And, maybe it would be better for other people to see why it was rated the way it is, because if something was one star (which I've never seen, but could happen), then they might be interested in why it was rated that way, and not knowing might prevent them from posting on that thread.

Though rockermom and softballipod have good points, I have to say I don't completely agree with them. The thread rating feature is already there, and if someone got a bad rating then yes it would make them feel bad. With this feature, though, I think it would make them feel better to know why they were rated down, or just rated down by someone random who didn't even post on the thread. It would help them understand where they should improve.

Oh, yeah. For threads with multiple owners, it wouldn't really work.

Oh yeah, good point

Yes, I'm sure thread owners would like to know why and where they need to improve.

Default Re: Thread Star Rating

i really like this idea! it was really weird because my shop had been five stars for so long, & then it randomly lowered. i don't know why it did, as the comments people were leaving about my shop were positive & good comments. an explanation for the thread rating would be a great addition to WI!

nice thinking!

I think that is why. It doesn't seem uncommon to see that in the graphics section.
If vB doesn't have this feature anyway, then you could leave a VM or even a post on the thread saying something like, "Nice thread! I voted 5 stars for it because you really explained it!"

Default Re: Thread Star Rating

Your right, because if it's a shop, other shop owners can just rate it low so people will come to theres.

Default Re: Thread Star Rating

I wish they would do away with the star ratings altogether. I think people should be on even ground with their threads, and have readers make up their own minds whether or not it's good/helpful for them.

Default Re: Thread Star Rating

I personally don't pay any attention to ratings. I don't vote in them and I don't look at them.

The problem with that is if it was optional, the people who were rating badly just wouldn't say why and if it was mandatory, who knows, they would probably lie. I think it is a great idea though to do away with all thread rating and just forget all this because obviously all this does is cause tension.

Thread owners should restrain themselves from asking "Please rate my thread" in their first post. If your thread gets less than 5 stars, you will be upset, so why ask for a rating? And being given a reason for the lower rating, won't make the bitter pill any easier to swallow.
I agree webberily.

Default Re: Thread Star Rating

I think that thread rating it fine.
I mean...serously? It's not that bad, if we have to rate evry thread the best rating.. what's the point? In REAL life people aren't always going to like everything you do. I think little things like getting upset about a low thread rating is kind of silly... Not to come off as rude or anything.
