Modify Ratings

Unanswered Question
Nov 16th, 2007

Probably the idea of rating posts came up at the time when there were very few users of this forum. Then the idea may have been to rate each & every post. May be bcoz of this, the Ratings vary from 1 - 5.

If an author posts something & didnt get a proper reply, he would wait a little more time to see an exact answer or solution. Instead, rating of 1 or 2 is not his idea of telling people that he's expecting more on the solution.

Ratings of 1 & 2, I believe have no significance. When someone who replied to the post gets a rating of 1 or 2, the person may feel dejected & may not bother to reply back more precisely. Also, this just spoils the average rating of a Netpro. Taking note of the fact that nobody enjoys his total score going up by 1 or 2 points. Its only 3,4 or 5 that indicates the importance of solution & also author of solution relishes it.

I have this problem too.
