    I hardly ever think about it... It's not like a thread being rated 5 stars makes any difference for anything...

    But if people actually use it then you can sort the posts on a board by their rating and thereby not read any of the junk...

    Probably because people don't want to be told whether a thread is good or not. they can find out for themselves...

    bye the way, I just rated this thread

    Ratings would be a good way for (searching) a good answer to a question.
    This would increase the time of searching in my opinion.
    So WebMaser.........What was the original idea behind Ratings????

    Who knows why its there - but I think we should start doing it for every thread. Of course all of King_Witches posts would be 1/5
