Folks, we're deciding the future direction of Fanpop, and one of the 질문 is if we should bring back five-star ratings to replace the "fan of it" button.
VRSOF hasn't been active due, in part, to the lack of a downvoting system . The "fan of it" button was part of a larger Internet trend towards simplifying voting, but it's entirely possible that it turned it down too far.
just really wish people could participate in rating contributions and just rate a hell lot more!
I just spent a good 20 분 on three different fanclubs; Jacob Black, Bella Swan, and Edward Cullen and rated up well over 10 pages of unrated 아이콘 on each of these damn clubs! 당신 know the award 당신 have for rating contributions that's on your profile? Well, over the last single week mine went up from being in the 7000's to know 8929, if not more! Because all week I was rating things that were left totally deserted, and I didn't want the posters to feel unappreciated so I rated...
Ok, i go on the 타이타닉 spot quite a bit and contribte there with images...there have been some times where my stuff's been on there for a 월 maybe even two with like 50 views and no-ones rated...
the 타이타닉 spot, i know, isnt very active but the people who are on there just ignore most things and it gets really frustrating when they look but just dont rate...
i have had a mate help me out (only one because i HATE medal whores!!! grrrr)
I came on 팬팝 to just get 사진 of coouples and celebs i liked... then i got really into it and started to read 기사 and socialise. But one thing that i never realised was that rating was a big deal and that cheating occured.
Sooooo guess what i did? I rated EVERYTHING i started to look at... and at first i admit i forgot to rate but now when i go somewhere i rate... feels good ya know :)
I dont rate if the person has alot of ratings and i know of them being a -cough-medalwhore-cough- but when...
I have a feeling that this 질문 may annoy a lot of 팬 on this spot, but please let me explain before commenting;
I did read the guidelines of the VRSOF spot, and I think it would be alright if I asked for my 에반에센스 비디오 to be rated.
One rule stated that what I have 게시됨 must be unrated for at least a month. My 에반에센스 비디오 have been 게시됨 in the 월 of May (I think), but definitely a 월 ago. I have no idea why 팬팝 will say they were 게시됨 28 days ago, because I know for a fact that they were rated 더 많이 then 4 weeks ago. But it's alright...
There are a number of ways in which 팬팝 will be affected 의해 this new rating system, and I can't think of a positive one. Here are the main issues for me.
As the new system does not indicate how many people have rated an image/video/link, this will make it much, much easier for people to use multiple accounts to rate their own contributions. As other people cannot see how many people have rated an image, someone with multiple accounts could rate their 이미지 10 times and none of us would be...
This 기사 describes the criteria I apply to rating content on Fanpop, and was last edited on 17 June 2008.
So, having written my 팬팝 User's Guide link (in which I suggest that users should apply consistent criteria for rating content on the site), I figured that I could provide an example in my own ratings criteria. Take it 또는 leave it; I present it as an example of how one could rate content consistently, not necessarily as an argument for how 당신 should rate content.
