Rating System v. Thread
    #1488180 - 04/24/03 03:19 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

If it has been agreed that the implemented rating system is to be used for rating users for trades...why is the Good Trader Post still open...lock it!

I remember when my school said we had to switch to the metric system by 1995. For about six mo's they taught us how to convert and provided info in the metric system. Then they stopped. Most Americans are not using the metric system to this day...because change is often forced...especially when habits have been established.

So, I ask the Admin to lock the Good Traders Post in an effort to transition the Shroomery members to the better rating system...or get rid of the post in the Marketplace that explains that the members should be using the new system.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Marketplace&Number=1456347&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=93&fpart=1

Get with the show folks.

I will leave this up to the Marketplace mods to pass decision on the thread in question.  However, if you've noticed we've lost all the info in the dynamic ratings.  This is the second time this has happened and 3D nor myself have any idea why it's happening.  Matts designed the rating system from what I can remember, and I will consult with him on the matter - but until them, I think that we may as well leave the Trader threads open since the dynamic ratings are still in the beta phase of development and as it currently stands, only feedback given after 4/20 was saved :tongue:

Sounds reasonable. I hope it gets fixed soon.

It seems like it's been in the works for quite a while now.

Yes, until the system is stable I wouldn't want to close the thread.

I do suggest that users use both systems right now because the Good traders thread will be eventually closed. If users don't start using the rating system then they will basically be losing their current status.

I would hope that the feedback already in the thread could be transfered to the rating system. Perhaps a good transition plan should be thought of in order to maximize the transfer of ratings to the new system.

I just heard that the new rating system is available and reliable. A tally of the old system was just completed. This seems like a good transistion point to me.

What are you (admin/mods) waiting for?

Last time I chatted with matts he's busy with school right now, in the midst of finals he was saying.

He did say soon he'll be able to get on this though after his school is done.

I won't lock it.
I like being able to see a list of names of people that are good traders.

I don't see why we should lock it.

What is your reason to have the Good Trader thread locked?

I?m also against simply locking it. But you should try to get people use the rating system(in addition to that thread).

No problems since the ratings drop on 4/20 weekend.  Looks like your backup measures have been sucessful thus far.  But, if memory serves, the old ratings didn't drop for many weeks and then all of the sudden disappeared, so we may still face rough seas ahead :smirk:

But so far as I can tell, it's lookin' good :grin:

The only reason we can see a list is because a user was willing to compile the list, which he said took him several hours to do. If an automatic system is available, it seems like a waste not to use it.

Do you think there will really be a very big response to an optional change? Most people get stuck in habits.

I see a few people interested in a better rating system, here it is. Let's all take full advantage of it.

It seems like a waste to encourage the developement of a system and then to rely on an older less complete system instead.

I encourage the admin/mods to come up with a smooth transition to the new system now that it is available.

Yes, well the smooth transition is in progress...

The last time the data got wiped on the dynamic ratings system was after the 4/20 weekend. Thus far (after matts reset the backup rates), we have not had any problems. However, it had been many weeks working when the data was suddenly lost on the 4/20 weekend... so we will continue to encourage use of the system in addition to the Good/Bad trader threads until we are sure that the system is stable. After a reasonable amount of time, then I'm sure we will phase out the manual lists.
