Star ratings of users and posts

I don't know about the rest of you but personaly I think the star rating of users and posts is a bad idea. It tries to make the forums into a popularity contest. And that is just not what the BBS is all about. These are my opinions but I would like to hear others opinions. Anyone else dislike or like these ratings? BTW, I thought that was what the user titles was all about, giving people an idea of how long a given user had been using the BBS forums. Why do we need 2 rating systems? Doesn't make sense to me.

Re: Star ratings of users and posts

Please don't get me wrong. I actually like some of the changes. My gripe is we do not need this star rating crap. I mean if your going to do that then where is the negtive stars so we can pounce on the crap posts and or posters with negative stars. If you are going to allow people to rate a post for the good you had better allow us to rate them for the bad also.

Re: Star ratings of users and posts

Personally I don't like the ratings either. Then again, it was brought up at the last upgrade, and if memory serves everyone said it wasn't a good idea, yet it went through anyway. I know I'll ignore it, means nothing.

I also agree it's too "busy" now, too much useless info that should remain in the profile section, not on the main BBS.

Re: Star ratings of users and posts

W3tadmin, found something of interest for ya:

In your control panel in the primary settings drop-down box go to General Display Settings. Scroll down about 2/3rd's of the way to the section titled "Topic Display Options" and the 3rd item in the list is "Display Member Ratings?". Select the appropriate answer for what you desire.
