Re: Rate The Thread
In 5 years on this forum, I've rarely looked at the rating of a thread except to wonder why it got that high of a rating at times. I agree with Critical in that sometimes - if the thread were started by someone popular - or as he put it trying to get in good with someone else it'd get high marks no matter what the content was.
I don't know how the rating system works on forums, but I suppose if it had a rating based on the AVERAGE of all the different ratings given, it'd be much more accurate. Doesn't really matter to me either way since I pretty much look at all the new posts since last visiting - I use the New Post link at the top of the page.
