Reply to myself .. hehe

I haven't seen any objections .. if there are any, please let me know.

I'd like to move this back to thesite .. so we can continue discussing the
larger database design issues and coding of the changes.  :)

| Hey folks ...
| >From where and whom this conversation originated, I've not a clue.  ;)
| The thought is .. certain categories on evolt should not be rated .. as
| ratings don't provide any "real" benefit to the community members nor to
| author's quality of work.  The categories in question include:
| Jobs
| News
| Community News
| Suggestions
| I created a Category Type page, which briefly outlines the different
| on the evolt site and which categories are not included, etc.  This can be
| found at:

| I'm bringing this up on theforum for further discussion.  Though it hasn't
| been explicitly discussed, I'll take a guess and say the thought is to
| permanently delete the current ratings for all articles in the above
| categories.  Also, the "rate this article" section will not appear at all
| any articles within the above categories.  Obviously, a brief announcement
| of this change will be written for the Community News category, just to
| everyone know of the decision.
| Thoughts, concerns, objections, etc. ??
