 That's why I started this post, from your comment left on my work.

No I was not trying to rate my own work! If it sounded like that in my original post, sorry.

Glad you did!!!!....a very good piece of work with such a low star rating just got me so mad and defeats the whole point. Every piece of art uploaded just before yours was rated the same....something odd there!!!! I am off to try to upgrade you!!!...and it should be obvious to everyone why I would do that. I just could not get the star rating to work.......I clicked several times and nothing happened!....and I was logged in.

It was this phrasing that threw me "and I have a comment about not being able to post a star rating to one of my submissions."

Now I understand you meant you had a comment on your image from Pauline stating she couldn't rate your image. I didn't know that when I read it the first time and it sounded like you were making a comment about not being able to rate your own  submission. LOL! Ain't language and context grand? Tongue out

as i said in previous posts, the star rating needs re-evaluating sometime in the future. at the very least there should be no anonimous ratings. personally, i wouldn't dream of giving any less than four stars to anything i wasn't sure i could do better, and if i ever do happen to give a low rating i will comment and say what needs work on. haven't had to yet. there is so much work unrated, and there is no consistancy in the ratings that things have. need proof? go to the last page when viewing by rating, and work backwards. there is still some good stuff there.

Yes irishlostboy!.....as you say, surely an important point with rating is to comment at the same time!.....helps all. I see it as akin to handing in an assignment. Any teacher/educational moderator would be slated for marking without comment. It becomes a pointless exercise.

Maybe many would disagree with me.

Personally I have seen too many sites where a rating system becomes nothing more than a popularity contest and the ratings mean nothing more than you have a lot of friends. It says nothing about the standard of the work rated.

This is soooooooooo true Beatrice!!!!!!!....Ooooooooooh for lots of friends willing to do just that for you!!!....I, perhaps naively, would have thought that most people would prefer an honest appraisal....far more personally satisifying!

CheersCool

Never mind the star ratings - currently they do not mean anything. As has been mentioned before, that system is still open to abuse, and it appears that people take the opportunity to abuse it a lot.

It's true that, unfortunately, there is a lot of excellent work that has received a one-star rating, while a lot of the less excellent work seems to enjoy surprisingly good ratings.

As far as I'm concerned, there's no need to worry about views - I never pay attention to the star ratings because I know they do not represent the real quality of the work that is posted here.

Oooooooooooh how sensible brainstew!!!!!...that is why I wonder why the site even bothers to have them!!!....of course there are genuine ratings BUT...I was watching one late night here in the UK and actually saw ratings being given given one star or downgraded.....there will always be idiots who think this is fun!!!! Someone (called ,of course, anonymous) was clearly goung around and giving one star to many products. All you Americans are out of time sink with us here in Europe....but it does have tha advantage of seeing unscrupulous behaviour!!!!!
