99% of the time yes, we do want discussions here even if the post isn't what everyone wants to hear.
The entire idea behind ratings is to reduce unnecessary spammy posts and keep the discussion on topic.
No we are not, unless you think Alex is speaking for TAZ?You guys are sort of contradicting yourselves. Aren't you?
Oh crud. You've managed to figure out that Steve is my Cyborg twin who's much more younger than I am and a funnier one too. I have very different opinions on what is acceptable for forum discussion and what isn't. I would say that when Steve says that, he speaks as a TAZ staff member and for the forum. When I say what I said, it's for any and all forums. I hate fluff posts.You guys are sort of contradicting yourselves. Aren't you?
The "creative" rating is possibly the most random of them all.
It is widely used in the Graphics request area, but have seen it used elsewhere as well.
Oh Lord. If there's a donkey head rating - we'll have a 100 page discussion on whether it is subliminally calling members of the Democratic party jackasses. Then we'll need an elephant rating which reads. Bad joke hehe.I think instead of a Meh one... we need a bad apple one.
Wouldn't mind one with a donkey head - could phrase it to "Quit being a jack ass". Now, time to go off and find one.
Hilarious. But you do make an excellent point. And I think I'll weigh in with my opinion now...I once got a drama queen rating..it was hell, I couldn't sleep for weeks, lost a ton of weight, was not able to go to work, started drinking again, had to start seeing my shrink again, life was hell, I had a hard time justifying going on with life after that. Took me months to recover from that rating...
I was actually happy to see drama queen gone, but I was hoping it would have been replaced with Troll.
In all seriousness, what does giving someone a drama queen rating actually do? Not like it down votes the thread/posts and moves it to the 32nd page or anything right?
I regret I have but one post rating to give to this post.Now Mr. Disagree will get used more often and then someone will complain again about him being used all the time for their poorly written posts and then TAZ will probably end up removing him too. Might as well just do it now.
It was much easier to just read it, flag it, and move on, rather than having to explain why their post is complete codswallop. And I'm not even British! Maybe we could get an icon "Not Helpful" or something similar.Have you considered ignoring these posts instead? Surely you don't expect to agree with everyone or have everyone agree with you. It's all in how you choose to define "nonsense".
There's also a decent old fashioned smiley that would give you the finger and the finger resembled those giant foam hands you'll see at sporting events.
Oh noes. The butt wiggle smiley would be RIPE for abuse. I can even see myself complaining about it: "Did you just call me an ass. Well - YOUR'RE an ass... Bla bla bla." And then the fists come out.. But hey - I suppose the same could be said of the donkey head right? Get it? It's an ass joke LOLbut I suppose a butt wiggle smiley would be better than a donkey head.
I've used it a few times here actually - but hopefully not in a way that someone would want to chop my fingers off bahahaa.YES! Thank you for finding that, Jac. Saved that one for future use. Not on here of course. I'd try to do it myself but my past efforts at smiley creation have been nothing but terrible.
PoetJC is always at your service just so ya knowYeah I know the feeling with graphics, can't do it, and suck at editing them, heck I can even mess up taking pictures.
Shelley's the best designer I've had the pleasure of getting to know. I wonder how she's doing anyone know????I'm not saying I'm terrible or that I'm great. I'm bad with the subtleties. In other words, I'm terrible but not too terrible. Shelley gave me enough pointers and I still managed to muck it up. I've always considered my pirate sword ranks the best I've ever done. They still look great IMO. Large ranks have gone the way of the Dodo bird now.
