The ratings system
    #3740270 - 02/06/05 11:51 AM (12 years, 17 days ago)

I have been at the Shroomery for nearly 5 1/2 years. I don't remember when the ratings system started, but its been operational for a long time. And I have many friends here at the Shroomery. So why don't I rate anyone?

I've only given out 3 ratings:
One to a person who helped me out with something.
One to a person who was wearing a sweet hoodie in a picture so I gave them 5.
And one to Hanky...because he asked for it! (and I was feeling generous that day).

Then sometimes I look at all the people who've rated me and I feel guilty for not throwing a nod back thier way. But then it would seem disingenuous (here, I'll rate you because you rated me). So I think, "Maybe I'll just sit for a few hours one day and rate everyone I can." But I know I would miss someone I want to rate. Theres just too many people here that I like. And I don't think I'll ever make a habit of rating people on a regular basis.

So rather than try to rate everyone I think I'll just call this the "Summit's Official Ratings Thread" and say to all my friends here at the Shroomery....

You are all 5 star material IMO!!

You invented the wheel....You push the motherfucker!!

I think the whole "you rated me so I'll rate you" thing is stupid and defeats the object of rating in the first place. I rate when I see something I like not to get rates in return. Just look at overgrow for a rating system gone wrong... people are always throwing around karma (the og equivilant of rates) and the general rule is you'll get more if you give more. The Shroomery system is much better cos you can leave comments and the whole rating in return thing isn't so rampant.

"You can either believe you can do something, or believe you can't.... either way your right"

nice post summit. I know what you meen. When I first started here I was all about rating the cool folks I chatted with. but then I slowly faded away from that practice, as well as my amount of posting. I only give 5 ratings anyway, Im not gonna go outta my way to give someone a bad rating just cause theyre a dick. The only exception is on trades. I think those ratings are imporatant cause they show who can be trusted within limits. Anyway, to all those who I havent rated, Im with summit in saying you are all 5 shroom material :wink: Cant wait to see you at NE, the date is set WOOT!

I gave you a good rating in 8-04 because I agreed with something we were talking about. Not for no reason. I give good ratings to people who give me advice or make me laugh. I never give bad ratings. I just don't rate assholes.
So am I to assume that everyone here isn't gonna give me a 5 shroom rating?

Check out my tunes. You will be better off for it.

nice. can i have a rate now please?
i behave nice most of the time, and i contribute here and there, and i :heartpump: ratings. they're like a scrapbook for me, and a validation thing. i have less confidence in the real world than in cyberspace where i can show off cos it's the norm.
the green trade rates are my real treasures - i'm very protective of them, and even nudge people i traded for reminders  :wink:
