    'people get offended by being called dumb, old, or having their english proficiency called into question'
    'the blender is speshul because they weeded out all the ppl who'd otherwise complain'

    pretty much the same responses i've seen every time anyone including myself has asked this question

    not that it explains why they're pandering to the small handful of members that give a shit about ratings but we'll prolly never get that explanation :kanyeshrug

    Yeah, people/mods on these forums are weird sometimes. Though I think they also argumented with different sub-forum cultures? Do we have safe spaces around I don't know about?

    Rep was always a huge pain in the ass, the rating system itself is even a bigger pain in the ass. At least with rep you could only rep 8 times a day and the same person 1-2 times a day, but ratings are completely unlimited and we don't even have a way to effectively monitor them like we do with rep, like outgoing or incoming ratings of a single person. So ratings that had were 100% negative were scrapped from most area's of the forum.

    Of course this is a community and we can talk about these things, but I am probably not going to switch my position on the old and dumb rating, bad spelling is iffy.

    As for turning the ratings table back on, that seems very likely.

    I still don't understand why they were disabled. Why does it need to be monitored? Doesn't the report system exist to help mitigate the need to rely on active monitoring?

    In the new updated rules it says that you're not allowed to mass disliked/negative rating members

    Why can't the rules regarding ratings work the same way rep and flaming does? With reports.

    I mean going by that logic, why not just disable disagree and dislike too? Dislike is arguably more negative than old and bad spelling.



    Still no answer as to why they are enabled in the Blender too. That's like removing the rep limit in the blender only or some shit

    How the hell is the report system going to tell us when some jackass decides to spam 100 ratings? Each individual post needs to be linked to us to confirm anything. Rep is way easier and we can check outgoing and incoming rep of a person, we can tell immediately if someone targeting someone else if we check and to what degree.

    I disagree with that, dislike is not inherently insulting, it only means you disliked the contents of the post. Dumb/Old/Bad Spelling are not even low key ways to lob insults at each other like the optimistic or informative ratings are, they exist for nothing more then insults.

    I don't know about the blender, but the blender always had loser rules then the rest of the forum.
