As promised, with the television sweeps period starting tonight, it's now time for everyone here to put on their best show and try to get THEIR ratings up. Everyone's flatlined as of....right now.

For your perusal, here now are the top 10 raters as of just before I zapped the table (of 9871 ratings):

412 Mr. Heat Miser
372 Ryan_A
360 Zeruel
324 Big G
289 redsoxnation
238 CRZ
204 emma
192 Jaguar
186 jvincion
150 kazhayashi81

If you're dying to see YOUR name in this list, I'll run the numbers again at the end of sweeps, which this year is 1 December.

Just a reminder that ratings are more interesting if you give out ALL the numbers, as opposed to just tens and zeroes. Also, one more reminder that begging for ratings, or talking about specific ratings you're giving specific people is generally bad taste and frowned upon.

You know what'd be neat would be if instead of having the "rate think link" link on posts, there'd just be links to number 0 thru 10 which would assign the rating and load back the post page instead of going to an in between page.

It's a stretch and I'm being lazy, I know.

Is there some kind of scale that weights each person's vote? Because a 7 and 9 don't average out to an 8. (The former was with 1 vote, then my rating for 2.)

Yes, there is.

The Zims have a secret formula. As for sweeps I went and started re-rating all the posters who were more well known to me, but I think that kind of ruins the game. So I'm going to re-delete all those ratings (except for DEAN~!) and try and rate everybody based on what they say from today onward, not what they've said in the past.

I don't believe I've ever rated a post/poster. Am I missing out on something? What do those ratings affect?

Not much, really. In your profile there is an option to ignore users with a rating below a certain number, but that's about it.

Will writing "a very special" post during sweeps help my rating?

Since I can't figure how to have a guest star in a post.

You're telling me you can't pull Kornheiser for a guest shot during sweeps?

What good are you?

I could get Stat Boy, probably not Tony himself, who is only slightly less computer-phobic than Ted Kazinsky.

The ratings don't show up unless someone's rated you, and apparently no one has since the ratings were erased. One people start to, you'll get a number.

Ah, makes sense. I should have gone back and re-read the OP. Thanks to all those who made my rating show up! :)

COuld there be an option available that allows posters to see who voted them what, and maybe offer an opportunity to ask WHY they were voted a "3" or whatever?

I'm all for a rating system, but it would be nice for such system to be used honestly instead of saying "I don't like his sig, I'll rate him a zero" or "he corrected me, I'm gonna give him a 1". I'd like to see an option where ratings like that can be turned down and discussed, if possible.

It's my experience with ratings systems that people who feel they were rated unfairly (or rated due to their "intelligence", such as "he rated me poorly because I corrected his grammar") generally deserve exactly what they get.

Unless it's me. Then it's just plain wrong. Cause I can blow up the board with this little red switch. <points>

Oh, I'm sorry sir. I didn't mean to infer that you might be poverty stricken. Should I revise my statement to make it clear that you have way more money than brains?

So true! I won't put this in, because it's difficult to stop myself from bitching about the guy who gave me an 8 rating after I corrected him in the Arafat thread

Yeah but those other sites have to PAY for bandwidth rather than running on the Power of the Warrior.
