one good thing about this and i hope others agree is that people are going to post better topics now because they know they'll be judged and that'll bring about better topics and threads.the world is waiting and watching and will rate accordingly.i think this is a great addition.....

    possibly so.  or people will rate less not wanting to hurt feelings.

      Todd this is great.

      I really like it.  Seeing who gives you a rating whether good or bad, let's you see who is really still interested in your posts to begin with..

      Thanks..

          In Firefox, when I click the ratings box from the forum topics page (without having the thread open), I can see who voted even before I vote myself.  When I have the thread open, the first click rates the thread, then the next click also shows the ratings.

          Glad you added that feature, cuz somebody got into a snit or something earlier and was rating all of one member's posts low.  Now maybe they'll think first. 

          I'm hoping that when a member rates a post without actually adding a post to the thread, that it won't bump it up like it used to.

            It's not just Firefox, that's the way it works in every browser -- purposely.  I don't think someone can adequately rate a topic without first viewing it, right?  And it's not like voting on a poll, where you need to cast a vote in order to see the poll results.

            Rating a topic does NOT bump it up.  The only two things that bump a topic are new replies and voting on a poll.

            I agree on your middle paragraph.

                    Oh, okay it's the polls that are bumping threads.  Still very annoying to me to have a thread bumped without a reply.  Guess I'm in the minority.

                      No, I don't think you are in the minority. Well, at least I agree with you!  However, there are times when 50 people at once are posting, so a topic can disappear from the home page in seconds and I need to use the search feature to see the daily topics.

                          Ok......now I get it! I didn't have any trouble rating a post, just viewing the results. After reading this thread, I understand it now. To see the results...double click! This is awesome! I think it is great way to let a poster know that we really appreciate the time and effort they are putting into the thread. Sometimes we forget to say "thanks", so this feature really does that and let's them know their work is appreciated! A great feature...

                            Maybe I'm in the minority here,but I don't care much for these "ratings". Obviously if a topic is interesting and people are watching and responding,the thread will remain at the top. Something that is of interest to one may not be interesting to anyone else but why should it be graded? And if people see a "poor" rating they might not even look at the thread to begin with and it actually may hold some interest for them.  

                            Out of respect to everyone here,I would hate to think that ANYTHING anyone posted is "poor", yet if a thread is started that is "less interesting",shall we say, why can't it just disappear with no one knowing who didn't like it? I would think it would make people less inclined to post something to begin with only to get a shock over who is grading it a one star. 

                            I have loved all the other improvements but this one gives me some pause.

                              Thanks for speaking up, lottolaughs.  I was thinking the same thing.  On the one hand, I like all the improvements Todd makes, since this is such a great site.  On the other, rating threads might keep some people from posting new topics.  Anyway, I don't look at the ratings much.  Look at American Idol!  Stephanie got voted off and Sanjaya is still hanging on.  So ratings are only as reliable as the people who are voting.
