New Ratings - I just noticed a problem
    #1639837 - 06/17/03 04:11 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Now that people have to show their name and leave a message to rate somebody, I have the feeling everybody will have higher ratings, and those who wish to rate somebody a bit lower may not do so because its so "public" now.

I don't have a problem with it so far, but if somebody gets really annoying and I want to rate them low I might not do so because retaliation-ratings from them and their friends based strictly on my rating of that person could drag my own rating down very low....

Basically I'm saying that I think people won't want to give low ratings anymore due to lost anonymity

This true, but on the other hand, we won't have so many low rating orgies. It also helps us track evil puppets and trolls who intentionally go around rating people down...

I think it's good that people have to be accountable for their ratings! Like in real life, people will be a little more constructive with their cirticisms, if they have to go on record! :laugh:

All well and good except for those of us who are irritating pricks (like me).

I don't give a shit what my rating is and will still find amusement in giving a low rate (ie: a 1) to those who whine about their ratings or lack thereof.

ratings =  :thumbdown:

Actually I think you solved a problem. The problem being that 40% of ratings were a 1. That dosen't reflect the truth about the majority of the members here. And I have no problem what so ever about rating an asshole a 1 publicly.

K I'll pipe down :smile:

edit: woah I just realized that the term "pipe down" (which is a kind of "shut up") could have evolved from something like "smoke this shit and it will quiet you up for a while"

"Pipe down"
Be quiet. Origin On sailing ships signals were given to the crew by blowing whistles (pipes). One such was the signal to go below desks. When an officer wanted a sailor to be dismissed below he would have him 'piped down'.

What is the policy on someone giving a "trade" rate when there has been no trade? Can't this be used to skew the results?

While some thought was given to this I'm sure, bag the rate system because it's actually quite silly.

Or.... only have trade rates.

Your thinking about it too much....it a frickin message board rating, i mean who cares if "they're friends" will rate you low for speaking your mind....what does it affect you? People who know you will give you good ratings with more meanigfull messages....

I know you're going to say "look at you, you've only got 3 shrooms, of course you're going to say that.."
But I think people should have the choice whether to participate in ratings or not (like on some other drug-oriented BB that I can't recall at the moment). I think ratings are worthless. I mean look at it already, after only 2 days, the system has become completely devalued by people trading 5's. Just let people have the option to rate and be rated, or to have no part in the system.

Good idea?
Yes
No

yeah I think that's a cool idea - some of us don't want to worry about it.

"It also helps the adminstration single out the ones that can't fit in or behave."

I totally understand :smile: - Papaver noted this earlier and I think its an excellent point.

I'll get used to it
