Why remove a personal rating?

I have lost 10 this week, and don't understand the reasoning behind this.

Shouldn't a persons rating (good or bad) stay with that person till they leave the Shroomery?
Isn't that the whole purpose of the ratings system?

Again I ask.........Why remove a personal rating?

Anytime somebody gets banned, the ratings they gave out are "hidden" and are no longer used in the calculation. If they get unbanned, the ratings they gave out will come back.

Very seldom are general ratings simply deleted.

They seem to fluctuate.

One day I logged on and 5 were missing, then the next day I had a new one but my total was the same as before :justdontknow:

A complete and utter waste of effort.

What purpose is this supposed to serve?

We had a problem with puppets giving out bogus ratings upsetting some people. To discourage the use of puppets for this purpose we changed it so banned accounts no longer apply to the displayed ratings.

If that’s the case than I feel obligated to tell you that there are lots of members with negative ratings from Hanky that are still visible. Myself included/

Yeah, looking more like a bug... not certain what is going on, but too many people are loosing ratings for this to be due to banned accounts.

Thats the point I have been trying to make.

Why have a program set up to "hide" the ratings of "banned" people? It is a wasted effort.

Just leave the rating system alone. If someone gets banned, their rating should still be visible.

Just to clarify, ratings from banned users aren't hidden anymore. They were briefly, then people realized they were losing more good ratings than bad ratings and asked for it to be changed back. So a rating shouldn't disappear unless it was deleted. I did find a bug with the 'delete rating' code though... it was still recalculating the total from unbanned users only. The total would then remain incorrect until someone left you a new rating and it was recalculated correctly. So I fixed that and regenerated all the rating totals. Maybe it'll help, if not then I'm kind of stumped. Seuss, deleterating.php is the only place we DELETE FROM the ratings table as far as I know, and it looks fine to me now. Want to take another look and see if I'm missing anything?

Hey, Ythan
I just realized a negative negative rating is from Hanky, who is banned.
Without his BS, I would have an almost pefect record.
Please help!!
Thankx, and
Peace

Edit-plaese remove the recent childish ones as well. I realize people just leave random neg. general ratings, and someday they'll grow up.
My trade ratings speak for themselves. TY
Peace

Just live with them, dude.

It's not a big deal.

There is no prize for good ratings.

They do not determine your self worth.
