Default Testing the "rating" option

Thought I'd try out the rating deal. I tried it on someone else's thread. I selected average and the thread now says "average" even with just one vote. Then I tried Excellent and that thread is now rated excellent. So I wanted to try TERRIBLE but thought maybe I shouldn't do that to somebody's thread.

I wonder If I can rate my own here.

Edit: So now this is a one star thread (TERRIBLE). I can rate my own work!!!
Try it out here and see how it works.

Personally, I think it is adding a bunch of fluff to the board. If you are impressed or otherwise by the post, write a few words about it.

Richard,
I agree with the fluff. Too touchy, feally. Just post what you want to say.

I disagree Marty. You can disagree with folks here to your hearts content as long as both parties keep it civil. It's only when someone gets their nose out of joint that the admins step in and close the thread or remove the posts.

Admittedly some folks have thinner skins than others and take any question as a personal affront. imo, it's all in how you present the argument.

I do not always present it well.

When someone shows their "something" and asks for an opinion, and i cannot in all honesty give mine because I dont have much positive to say about it, I do not say anything and this person thinks they have the greatest product because they did not get any negative feedback in any manner, presented well or not.

I think this forum is too nice sometimes. jus sayin.

Three is no such thing as "too nice", what too nice means, is that you have to think about your reply constructively, not just through off the cuff remarks, that can be over negative for effect or humour.
It's a self filtering monitroring situation, so if you can't express your comments arcticulately, then it's best not to comment.
Yes, some people are sensitive about their work and if like me, you think twice about posting stuff that might be rediculed without constructive critique,then people ain't gonna post stuff.
All of the above comments apply to me aswell
