is there a way to change the rating I have given someone, if my opinion of them changes as they continue to post?

btw: The Leafs are much nicer than the stars were.

I don‘t believe there is a way to re-rate the members. However, if you want to e-mail me the details (cdnarmy@cdnarmy.ca) I can go in and edit the ratings files to reflect your change of heart.

(Assuming I don‘t get innundated with requests, that is.)

Cheers

Would it be possible to rate threads instead of (or inaddition to) members?  A lot of replies does not necesarily mean it is a good thread, and a post with few replies may still be a V Good read.  We don‘t really get to see a member‘s rating until after we have opened the thread and by that time we can quickly form our own opinions by the content of his/her post/reply.

Good idea. I‘ve asked the vendor to consider adding it to the program. If they don‘t, it may be something I can add in myself. (In all my spare time...)

I‘ll let you know if I hear anything more from them on it.

Thanks

PteJoe,

Member ratings are completely subjective. They allow you to express your opinion on a given member. Member ratings can be used (or ignored) by other users to see how well respected a member is when he posts.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

I understand.

I was wondering, do you plan on creating like an email system?  someone@cdnarmy.ca ?

You can get stuff setup like www.everyone.net

Just an idea  :)

Probably not. Although I can see there being some interest in getting a myname@cdnarmy.ca address, the wole site is still running on a 486 (sorry, I haven‘t upgraded yet). I don‘t want to put any additional burden on the system that would cause things to run any slower than they already are...

Who knows for sure? Don‘t seem to matter much anyway. FNG‘s with less than 10 posts are rated 5‘s and Veteran Members with over a hundred posts are rated 3‘s and 4‘s. Logical and fair, I hardly think so. But try to look past that. There‘s lots of good stuff here. Speak your mind, ask questions and offer opinions, don‘t worry about the rating crap.

The member rating is simply a peer assassination tool. You can give any member a rating and vice versa.

As recceguy pointed out, it doesn‘t guarantee anything in particular, and may show how only one other user felt.

Still, it‘s another piece of information you can use (or not) when judging a given response.

If you want more info on a particular rating, just click on it. It‘ll tell you how many votes there are, which can give you a better feel for if it‘s just one guy‘s opinion or more of a general consensus.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Edit: I should also point out that you can opt out of being rated by editing your profile. (Edit Profile --> View/Update Profile --> Allow your user rating to be publicly displayed?)

darn it
What's right is a matter of perspective.   If you don't stand up for what is right by yours, then you fade away losing not only the respect of those around you, but your self-respect as well.

Ratings are earned Shortbus, be patient and you‘ll have one too, and hopefully a good one. It‘s a peer thing. You rate someone here based on how you feel about their contributions to the site and/or the CF.

Are they a BS artisst, or do they give good advice?

Are they a nintendosniperJTFwannabe or a BTDT kind of guy?

Ratings are from 1(poor) to 5 (great)

You want to give someone a rating good or bad, then go into their profile and rate them.
