Honestly, you're not helping your cause by inviting those with knee-jerk reactions to attack you.

I go with the "Thumper's Dad" Theory of Rating:

"If ya can't say somethin' nice, don't say nuthin' at all."

Basically, if I've rated you, you've gotten a 5. Otherwise, I haven't rated you. [Smile]

Jess

As for my "5", I have A LOT of rounding going on and some very sweet people who rated me a "5" when someone rated me a "1" and tanked my rating.

I have to agree with DMan in some respects. The rating systems is like the one from photo-rating sites, and there's nothing quite as disheartening as being on the Bottom 10 because you and 10 other women have enough personal integrity not to bare breast or get as close to showing **** as possible before it becomes pornography.

Rating is hard, because a single post can make a person give you a bad score. A bad day, a nasty attitude, or even just a Troll running through rating you and everyone else a "1". Why? Because they can.

I don't think any worse of anyone here. I might find misspellings annoying, the AIMglish frustrating, and the bashing of America disheartening, but it doesn't mean that each person here doesn't have qualities and merits I find special, unique, and compelling.

True, but inviting everyone to give him five stars might also cause certain people to "1" him. I'm sure I've seen people ask for ratings in the past, and then get hammered by low ratings.

I still think the best policy is to just be yourself, and if stars come, well and good. What's the point in having your self worth bound up in what other people think of you?

I still haven't rated anyone. If I were going to, I'd probably mimic skylar and Jess, giving only 5s.

I am a sucker for a good cause. In consideration that I believe you are both great forum members, I give you and Xanthine 5 stars. [thumbsup]

{EDIT: I do have one question about the ratings system that I think only Snaggy can answer. If someone has a 5 star rating, and for some reason someone people rated him/her a one and it brought the 5 down to a 4, would it affect the weight of the previous ratings he/she gave others, or only the future ratings he/she gives?}

Try reading some of my former posts, darling, and you'll see that nowhere at all do I call give myself any airs whatsoever about computers, so calling me a kitchen script kiddie was pointless. I am a self-confessed role play/retro game/literature/music geek.

And just who is the eloquently stated 'bitch!' towards? One would assume a girl... and Cap'n Vic is no girl. That leaves me. Hmm... my temporary liking for you could leave quite suddenly...

I said that you came before me, Kitchen-script kiddies was refering to saucepan and any others.

I have a camp tendancy to call people (not just girls) bitches when i am annoyed, that was directed at Cap'n Vic, man or woman....


I am sorry for any misunderstanding.

Sorry Spoonie...? [weep]

You are forgiven. [Smile] I have a slight tendency to go all ice-queen on people who i think are insulting me, hence the overly sharp use of the English language.

Okay, so we're cool now. But I still stand by the point of using PM. It's a lot easier for the rest of us to carry on with a conversation without the three/four of you saying something like...
'just like &^%%£ did!'
'oh, yeah i remember'
'do you remember?'
'no, remind me'
'wel, &^%%£ climed the wall, and then fell off!'
'oh yeh dat was so funny i remember it now it was really c00l LOOOL!!!!'

etc etc.

And now I've done the same, haven't I? Botherations... Eh, it's a good GC tradition to deviate from the topic at hand, but...

Back on topic: bad ratings aren't the end of the world, and a 4 is pretty damn good for... no, Im done argueing now... [evil]

Incidentally, 'Bottom of Little Island called Britain'? Which county, might I enquire?

Dammit! Topic diverting fool of a spoon...

No. 1: 5 stars for DMan [Big Grin]

No. 2: When you know a few people IRL who are also on GC, it's kinda hard (for me at least) to, at first stop refering back to them.

Yes, thank you very much indeed [Smile] .
The person who downvoted me must have had one hell of a good rating (the weighted score takes into account the score of the voter, given a greater weight to highly rated voters' votes) - it took about 7 or 8 votes to get me back to where I started. Well, I'm better off than when I started, so I thank you all for your kind votes, and to my dear Xanthine for her nice campaign [Smile] .

My ears are bleeding...

For what it's worth, I gave both DM *and* X a 5 star rating a very long time ago, because I figure that, if we were ever to meet IRL, we'd probably get along just fine. Illogical Captain? Yup. So who gives a phuq anyway?

Sticks and stones, etc...

Afterthought: My biggest problem with the GC ratings system is that it's not possible to go back and change the ratings you've given.
