I just woke up and realised that you can rate threads also. I personally think thats a bigger minefield than gallery rating.

I'm like DJ.., I usually only give a rating when I really like something as a means of encouragement. I guess that sort of defeats the whole rating idea but I can't bring myself to give 1 or 2 stars. If I think something is bad or needs work I would just write that in the description rather than just slap a star rating on it.

Chris - I'm resisting the obvious urge to rate this thread!

I am in agreement with all of you, and am glad to hear that Doug will discontinue ratings as soon as it becomes possible. Like DJ and others, I only rate at 4 or 5 stars when someone deserves special applause. Most folks feel the same way, so why bother with those silly stars? The comments are what matter, the suggestions, the tips, and praise of SPECIFIC aspects of a submission--much more meaningful and useful that a general numerical rating anyway.

Mike - okay okay, challenges - that is what I meant - I think I posted that at about 4 am so you have to add that to the translation.

OK, time for a new member's opinion. I agree, the ratings are superfluous. The first things I began, and continue, to look for are the comments by viewers. I am learning like everyone else. The techniques and opinions I receive are far more useful than a handful of stars. The critiques and laughter are even more of a thrill. I could not even tell you which, if any, of my imges received any stars. I would hope that most contributors are like me. I want judgements explained so I can improve.

I don't think I have seen somebody give anybody a 2 or 3 stars. I don't give anything less than a 4. If I think it does not deserve a 4, I just don't give any but try to put a positive spin on the image. I don't believe I have given any negative comments either. I certainly feel elated when somebody gives me a 5 star rating.

Just me,
