Re: Hey!! A newbie got one star!!

So what you're saying, Mort-man, is that is has nothing to do with having thoughtful, articulate questions or well-rounded and fact-based answers? It is just luck of the draw? [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Sometimes you just have to stir the pot to see what's sticking to the bottom!!

Re: Hey!! A newbie got one star!!

Nope, it's not random, every one has a vote. You go to the persons info, (click on name) and
you put in how many stars you think the person deserves. all votes are averaged and voilla! Stars!

Now what criteria you should use is another matter, and unfortunatly you can't change your rating
later. At least as far as I have been able to tell. (Can this be fixed Doug? Newbies will typically
get low ratings but as the progress you should be able to give them credit.) Is is a popularity contest?
Rate them on knowlage? Are they helpful? Do they give bad advise? It's all in the eye of the beholder! [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Oh yeah, no stars means no one has voted for you yet.

Re: Hey!! A newbie got one star!!

No mtntoy you just bumped to a two star.
Real easy to do for someone. Just click on a persons name and adjust the star count.
