Hi Folks, I'll quote a grrr I made on a comment on the web site just a while ago. Not sure if my comment went through, since it did blow up. ;) Anyway, I'd like to discuss this further .. and see if we can resolve the issue. Thanks, Michele Here's the article and you can read the comments .. the grrr I posted was in response to the second comment Adrian posted .. but I don't want to single him out specifically, as I think there's a bigger issue here. http://evolt.org/article/Amazon_Out_of_the_Woods/1/20342/index.html My grr: huh ? So, now we're discussing ratings within an articles comments?? This should really be on theforum .. yet I wanted to see how the grr's were "shitting" .. so far, nothing I see wrong. Anyway .. ratings are anonymous .. they should be individual .. we have NO criterion for rating an article, whether its a news article, a code article or whatever. Unless you want to change the ratings system to something like "was this article useful to you?" .. that might give us a better idea of why a person rates an article a certain way. Otherwise, all we're doing is guessing as to why a person rated an article how they did. For example, a simple intro article to PHP might be highly rated by myself, as I thought it was well written and useful to me since I know squat about the subject. Whereas, the same article might be rated poorly by someone with more experience, because it was of no use to them. Anyway .. I really wish people would (a) stop bitching about a particular article's rating; (b) propose a solution to better quantifying the ratings; and (c) quit trying to change a person's rating because *you* don't think that type of article deserves to be rated since its not in a particular category (i.e. Matt's complaint of Dan's bday announcement article .. sorry Matty, we're even now ;). Back to the comment on this article .. discussing ratings and asking if someone rated an article a certain way sucks. Regardless of who that person is. How many of our site visitors will realize that the comments are directed between two admin members who disagree now and then on issues such as this?
