How The Heck Do Topics Always Get Rated Crap Here?

Sat Mar 23, 2002 2:04 pm

Hi there everyone,

I have always wondered how the heck most of the topics in the Aviaton Photography forum are always rated 1 or 2 stars, who is doing this?

Not intended to flame anyone.. Just very curious...

I've wondered this, and considered posting but decided against it at the prospect of getting one star  Big grin.

This is the forum that probably doesn't need the star ratings at all, it seems that people who ask for critique of their photos seem to get rated, rated for what? the photo? the quality of the post?

lol! I don't understand, oh well.

Hey,

Yes, I find too that topics are too low rated here.
If someone asks advice for a photo, for a camera,..., why must people rate this things always with one or two stars? If someone needs advice, well, give him advice, but now with giving hime one star!

I was going to post this as well. I think the rating system is a well-conceived idea, but unfortunately I think it does more harm than good in this forum. I personally try to disregard the ratings when I look through posts, because to me, whoever rates the posts doesn't seem to do anyone much justice for the most part. It seems to steer people away from posts where the poster genuinely wants some feedback or help.

Well I've noticed that the post dealing with rejected photos and how to improve them ALWAYS get one star. I've always thought it's uppity photogs who never have their pics rejected give those ratings.

Hi everybody,

I don't look at the star rating at all when viewing or answering threads. I also never rate any topic.

Btw, I noticed that all topic about the future of airliners.net or about the screening process regualarly receive high ratings: ***** for https://www.airliners.net/discussions/aviation_photography/read.main/43057/ is a good example.
