View Full Version : ratings...

hey all.. I say we start using the rating scale for the threads.

And not based on personal feelings, but more on relevance to the topic that the thread is named for. Whaddya think?

10-02-2001, 11:25 AM
what, no comments on what a stupid poll this is, and how nobody is ever gonna use the ratings anyways?

This is a stupid poll - nobody'll use the ratings anyways.

I voted yes.

10-02-2001, 11:32 AM
I know... and I know.

I'm bored. what can I say? I think I'll go to lunch.

Was it hypocritical to vote no, then rate this thread?

10-03-2001, 05:51 AM
well if you voted yes, I would imagine that you would also rate the thread.

10-03-2001, 06:00 AM
Yeah, but I voted "no, ratings are pointless", and then rated the thread. Which by my own admission was pointless. Maybe I was trying to make an ironic statement.

10-03-2001, 06:03 AM
HAHA... you fell for the trap. Hook, line and sinker...

However, my thread is now at 2 stars :mad:

10-03-2001, 06:14 AM
I may have voted it lower than that, but I was ignoring your comments on how we should judge threads.

Now, if only I can steer this thread off topic so if people do rate this thread on your criteria it rates even lower...


Aren't holes fantastic?

HAHA... damn you!

To all those reading this thread at this point, please disregard RobS's comments from this point forward. Holes are not fantastic, they are boring and should not illicit further conversation besides the idea of ratings.

I don't see the point of it. How can you rate half the .......... that get said here as 5 stars? It's all going to be 1 or 2 at best.

10-03-2001, 06:40 AM
true... maybe we should go on a "worth your while for reading" based on comedy or something.. IT WAS JUST AN IDEA.. I WAS BORED... :)

But it's entirely subjective value judgements, what floats my boat may sink yours and with only knowing the average of all the anonymous people who rated the poll doesn't tell anyone anything. We'd need to know who was giving us these opinions to try and make any considered judgement/decision on them.

Anyway, holes are great, solid state technology wouldn't be the same without them...

The new judgement criteria are better.
