Default It would be nice if we could do this.

I think it would be nice to have a rule or something about rating a thread.
I try to rate every thread I see honestly and it would be nice if others did to.
When I post a thread I add to the bottom please rat. No one doers though. I think that if you take time to read a thread you can take a minute to rate it honestly!

Happy Holidays!

I like this idea, but then people would get mad and quit. I think it's their own dicision if they want to rate it or not. Who knows, maybe they didn't have time.

Honestly, I really do not like the rating tool at all. It can lead to jealousy and hurt feelings. A lot of people can bomb a five-star thread by rating it one star, and thus it drops to four. Many people will not rate a thread honestly because of jealousy. I think we can show our appreciation of a thread simply by posting and giving reputation to the creator if we'd like.

I agree with Gillian.
Rating a thread is a choice and there shouldn't be a rule about how to rate a thread.
Everyone that rates threads rates them for their own personal reason.
Some do rate honestly, and others rate them one or two starts out of jealousy.
A lot of members don't even go by stars because the system isn't a too fair or honest one.
A great thread can have a 3 star rating just because people suggested.

Like Gillian suggested, its nicer and more meaningful to leave reputation or a kind comment on the thread.
Rating a thread is anonymous so you won't know who rated your thread, but if they leave you a comment or reputation you'll know exactly why they LOVED and ADORED your thread (or disliked it even).

Great suggestion.
Thank you for posting!

Default Re: It would be nice if we could do this.

Well, even if we made a rule, there's not even a way to see if people follow it. :\

Sadly, although a lot of members rate honestly, some don't, and that's just mean. I'd much rather them come out and tell me why they didn't like my thread, but they don't, they'd rather just leave anonymous bad reviews.

I don't even judge by the star system anymore. I choose myself whether I like or dislike a thread, the stars have nothing to do with my choices, and never will. =3

I totally agree with you, nice post. =3

I totally agree with this. I think some people just simply go through and rate a one star to everything out of boredom or jealousy. I don't see any purpose in keeping the star rating system.

Default Re: It would be nice if we could do this.

I agree, however, I think they've said it's not possible.
I never rate a thread unless I'm going to give it 5 stars.
I think a lot of people just do it to target the thread maker, like if they don't like them, which isn't fair.

Default Re: It would be nice if we could do this.

I mostly don't rate a thread, mainly because I keep forgetting and also because whatever I rate it, it could hurt someone's feelings. Say, if I rated a shop terrible because they did terrible (I doubt any shop is, they're all so wonderful! <3), it would hurt the thread owner and several other people but actually make people who hate the owner smile. o.O
If I rated a club five stars because I love it, it can hurt the person who hates it, seeing that its so good. But it'd make the thread owner and several others smile. o.O
I prefer sticking with reps and comments, and even a VM or PM. :3
I don't really care about the stars anymore, but it does make me happy to see my Guardians of Ga'hoole club five stars, seeing how it started out the first few months.
I actually don't like the rating system, it can lead to jealousy and rivalry...
Have a nice week!

Default Re: It would be nice if we could do this.

I do agree with you, but because of that, I have pretty much dropped the star system myself. I judge the thread with my own thoughts, not by looking at how many stars it has. It is very rude of some people though, just of the notion, to rate a good thread one star. Unless it's like the blawks club, please rate honestly everyone
