Well, I was thinking about the whole rating system the other day. The positive ratings help users develop relationships with...I'll skip this part, you don't care. Point is, the "Like!", "Love", and "Thanks" ratings are cool and should stay just like they are. I don't like having the negative ratings, but I understand that they serve a purpose. Instead of starting a flame war or causing drama in a thread, a member can just rate someone's post as negative. Either the other person learns, or they go off in PMs/profile comments and has their own little private fight (which is better than a public one). It is the single neutral choice, and indeed the selection of the three negative choices, that puzzles me. First, "cat like typing detected" does not seem like it is worthy of a negative rating, a solid RED tally mark against a member. Its bad, and its against the rules, but... It seems more neutral than the actual neutral choice, "dislike." I could be wrong there, of course. As for the neutral choice, I do not think it fits. It doesn't feel neutral, and seems more likely to create harsh feelings than the negative rating mentioned above (the cat, ya following?). It would also be nice to have three neutral options, to properly cover the wide range of reactions to posts. I was thinking something like... "You could have done better." Or "That was random." Or even, I don't know, "That didn't really need to be said, but thanks for trying." Those don't sound as bad as dislike, but they aren't likes either. Its a way for members to more fully express their reactions to other member's posts, without creating hard feelings and without being like ,"Oh brilliant, yes, good!" all the time. .... What do you guys think?? Also, promised Overcast - I LIKE RAISIN COOKIEs. There. Cookies.
