Are you sure??? Again, spraying off your own humble opinions, and all because you want to be so right, though are not always from all I've seen on here. To each their own though.

Personally as I say, I don't give two hoots about the stupid voting stars rubbish. As I said already, it's stupid and annoying and I don't care for it, neither do some others on here I've noticed..

Rockie and Valarc, I posted about this in the A&IA thread you two were in, also, but just to make sure you see it... I'm interested in your opinions about this, as always. I am definitely not interested in watching you two slug it out. If you want to keep going that's your business, please take it to email and off this site.

PLUS, it allows those that view the site, that do not comment, a way to chime in on particular topics. Yup, i'm a fan.

Coould you put the avg of the rating of the post next to the post list that way you could see what it is rated before you clicked the forum that would be sweet

Quick question.

As the rating system seems largely intended to augment the search function, how will the pre-star system posts and threads be represented in the search results? I'm thinking most of the really important and interesting topics concerning the physics, methods, gear, personalities and history of climbing have already been covered in much greater detail than they will ever be in future threads. I'd hate to see new threads prioritized in the search results simply because they have been voted on.

Can you put periods between your sentences? If you could do that, then maybe somebody could figure out what the fuck you're asking.

Thanks, but I've got it. Probably not Caleb. The biggest reason is that when a post shows on one of those lists, it's by definition new, so it'll have no stars -- everything on the list, with few exceptions will say "0".

The advanced search will become the rule, rather than the exception, and although searching by stars will probably be the default, you'll have the option not to. The goal will be a more customizable search.

Jay,
just to satisfy my curiosity. May you post the distribution of the voting so far?. I'd be surprised to see a gaussian distribution. I bet that it's a bimodal distribution, with lots of 1-star or 5-star. I think people will tend to vote for those posts that they consider exceptionally good or exceptionally bad, but not the posts they consider "average".
In this sense, I still believe the "trophy/turd" system was better, perhaps with a limit of 5 votes per day per user, to avoid limit turd wars.


You're probably right, but this system, while it's less funny than trophies and turds, certainly offers more fine tuning. I don't have the distribution, because we aren't tracking it. But, the presence of 2 and 4-star ratings (and 3-star with odd numbers of ratings), of which there are plenty around, seem to dispute any assertion that people only use 1 and 5 stars. I'm basing this solely on my impressions, but it seems as though people are, in fact using twos, threes and fours, though probably not as much as ones and fives.

PS: Sorry, I meant to respond to this days ago, but somehow spaced it.

Just a thought, but maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to remove ratings from the "in memory of" forum as well. I see no reason for folks to be rating posts in there.
