thread ratings - waste of space?
    #1284791 - 02/06/03 11:31 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

old threads with many views may have a high shroom rating, but for the majority it's either a 5 (poster rated his own thread) or a 3 (someone else disputed this and gave it a 1).

this pagespace could be better used by posting info like 'thread poster', 'posts in last hour' or 'most recent poster' for example. maybe just put in brackets the number of rates, for clarity (instead of moving cursor over it) ??

i love this place. home improvement is fun. :tongue:

sure. it is a waste of space. all forums with this software confirmed this. but, the funny thing is, admins hope that in a time, the situation will change. but it wont. I guarantee that.

Ironically, if one wanted to show their approval of this thread by rating it highly, they'd be disproving their own approval... :crazy:

Heh.. get a bigger monitor at a higher resolution :smile:

I think the thread ratings are very good, if someone new comes to the board they can immediately zero in on say the best grow logs, something that can save a bit of time.  5 generally denotes something that will be of interest to almost everybody.. good idea.

I think it's OK too.

If a thread has any shroomie rating, at least ONE of the people who's read it liked it enough to rate it!
Usually the 5S ones indeed are best, except on Odd Topic Discussion. Rarely go there, btw...
