A question on rating.
    #1652564 - 06/22/03 02:01 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hello,

I was wondering why we may only rate a member once on trades?

The reason I ask is because I have had multiple trades with some members, each trade being unique. I would just like the ability to rate someone for each trade that I make with them.

I think members would be able to get an even better view at how trust worthy a potential trader would be. Also, there are alot of generous traders out there that just deserve another mention.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Peace

Thanks for the reply. I went to edit my previous rating but the limit is 500 characters. I am not able to even add a full sentence before I hit the limit.

I understand about preventing people from flooding.

Could you increase the character limit, or is it as large as you feel it should be?

Peace

Why do you feel a need to write a novel for each trade?

Just edit your rate.

I do not feel as though I need to defend the reasons why I would like to leave a longer rating.

It is only a thought. I have had alot of trades where members really have gone above and beyond what they needed to. I have also learned an enormous amount of knowledge from certain members. Do you not feel as though they deserve a nice and well earned rating? And if they do the above mentioned consistantly, that they deserve a few more words to help show that they truly are stand up members?


(To the Management)
I still hope to hear that the limit has been increased. I will understand if it isn't. I know that you all work hard to make the Shroomery as nice of a place as it is. I do not mean to sound ungratefull. Thanks for reading this.

Peace

P.S. just this post minus my signature and this little note is almost 500 characters. Not long at all.

If you need that much space to rate someone, you should rethink what you write.

As an example:

Item: B+ print.
Quality: Fair
Speed: Fair
Trade again? Yes.

Low and behold.... 56 characters with spaces included in the count.
You could have almost 9 times that in a rate and I suspect most would be wasted space.

Good point lovdemshrooms. As foolish as it sounds I never thought about just using a simple template for all of my trades.

I was just caught up in trying to leave (as you put it) a "novel". This will most certainly help me out by being able to leave several ratings.

Thank you for the practical solution.

Peace

Ten minutes ago I would have said up the limit. Now thanks to luvdemshrooms I am not so sure if it is necessary.

It is probably better to just leave shorter ratings. Sometimes less is more.

Lets save the database space for TEKs and other benefitial (to the whole comunity) information.

Thanks

Peace
