We have predictors that enjoy predicting and posting there hard work here, the least that we can do as viewers is to let them know how they are doing by rating there work.

 

this rating tells them that you like what they are doing and would like them to continue or that they could elaborate more on there work for you, when you rate you ask for more of what you want to see from this predictor.

please try and take the time to vote we are losing some excellent people because they do not know how you feel about the work they are doing, all these views but no vote, how would you feel if no one expresed how good your work is and for you to continue doing it.

          Predictors are rated on the prediction board by how well they do compared with other predictors, just click predictions and check Top Predictors.

            The stars are here to rate also, they are two separate means of scoring, if not Todd would not have added them here for the forum........It's one thing to show your numbers and it's another thing to show your work as to how you came up with those numbers too help others learn how to do it for themselves, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." - there are some individuals on here that want to teach and should be rewarded for there excellent work.

              Here is the thing, and I have thought this from the very first implementation of the 5 star system. It should be anonymous. You would get a much truer representation of the threats. Every post I have seen is either 5 stars or none. Why? Because if someone doesn't find it as useful they will not give it any rating at all the way is stands now. If you gave a rating of less than perfect then you have to deal with the drama of "Why did Dead_Aim give this a 3 or 4 star instead of a 5?". Making you look like a bad guy if everyone else found it useful. Being anonymous would take all that away. Everyone would have to get use to not having perfect scores anymore if it ever changed, but then again, I think the rating system was designed to show what was more useful to everyone as a group instead of stroking each others egos. (And I don't mean that in a negative light either when I say that.) I mean, if I looked at a thread and it was just semi helpful (at best) to me I would feel better about giving it a lower score without having to feel I may have offended someone personally if I scored it on the "work" they have presented instead of who I gave the rating too. If that makes any sense.

                Dead_Aim,

                Maybe anonymous ratings are a good idea, I'm not sure though. As is right now, and not just predictions but threads in general, there is a small contingent of people that give nothing but 1 star ratings for spite and no other reason. Most of the people who do this have themselves never started a thread and that speaks volumes.

                They don't even get as far as content but stalk certain posters, see the name as starting a thread, and 1 star is given. Sad really, if that's all a person has in life.

                I'm just not sure if anonymous ratings would reduce or increase that little tactic.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                Lep

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  I guess the idea of the "star rating system" is to create a popular member ranking even if the current rankings will prove those member with the most stars can't predict their way our of a paper bag.

                      Up until now. My idea of giving the predictors good rating was too add their threads or works to my favorite list. Guess that not really good for them. If I didn't appreciate and enjoy their work , they wouldn't make my favorite list. If it makes it better for them to rate them by stars, so be it. From this point on I will.

                        Personally I think the ratings hurt certain threads. People may ignore threads with no stars whereas it may contain some great information. Or they may ignore threads with 1 or 2 stars for the same reason.

                        What's important to one person isn't to someone else.

                        And yes, Coin Toss is right about the spiteful 1 star-er's. That's not fair and brings ratings down on a perfectly good thread. I appreciate 5 stars but, you know,if people want to read my threads or your threads they will anyway. And if they don't they won't. That's okay. I'm here for one purpose only, to help others. If you want the help then click. If you don't, don't click. 

                        So I rarely pay attention to the "stars" but that comes from being here for many years. However "newbies" may be more influenced and like I said, there may be a no,1 or 2 star thread that may contain something useful that may be passed over because of the rating.

                              That's exactly my point! I didn't have anything nice to say! So instead of hurting your feelings by saying sumptin',

                              I wasn't going to post anything and just give it a 2 star rating. That's how I feel... Now it's obvious that a low star rating irritates you enough to bring it up, but I still will not express what I wanted to say in the first place.
