Does anyone ever rate the threads with those little stars?  I don't think I've ever rated a thread in my entire forum career here or on the previous atheist forum.   Maybe I'm missing out on something here.   Panic

Did you try giving your own less than 100%? LOL! Wink No actually never tried doing that. "Likes" seem sufficient.

Hahaha.  I just tried to do the same thing on this-here thread and a red warning box popped up and it said,  "You dumb bitch!  You can't rate your own thread. What the hell's the matter with you.....you silly billy?"

Not really, I'm just kidding.  Winking   It didn't really say that.  But wouldn't it be funny if it did?   Big Grin

Wouldn't it be great if computer messages were that direct? I recall reading about some person who programmed his phone to say "Hey stupid, you have a call". I don't have a smartphone, but if I ever do, it will have a ringtone like that. Smile

I actually do use it a fair amount, though I'm not sure if it says how much. I've seen some great threads get started here, and want to give due credit. I actually give thread ratings much more than reps. I feel I need to be careful with reps and really study the person.

I once rated one of Phaed's threads 5 stars just to shut him up.

And apparently just removed one star in this thread. Aggravated
Being told you're delusional does not necessarily mean you're mental.

I just gave Genesis Nemesis' High Point thread 5 stars. Smile It's nice to have little beacons of positivity especially in light of everything going on in the world today.

I just went to every other thread of GNs and gave each one five skull-and-crossbones, just to fuck with him. Hug

Ok, I rated your damned gay thread and gave it a stupid star.  Now stop your bellyachin'!    Angry

I've never really paid much attention to the thread ratings. I've never rated a thread.  Thinking

How do you rate a thread anyway? I didn't know we could I thought it was dependent on how many posts the thread had.

My cursor accidently went over the stars a couple of days ago when I was looking at a thread and the stars lit up gold that's when I realized, "Oh, you can rate threads.  Who knew?"   I'm sure there's a lot of things on this forum I don't know about.

There used to be a quick reply discussion going on at the bottom of the page on the old forum. I don't see that here but maybe it's somewhere on this forum and I'm too ignorant to know about it.

Well I'll be dipped! I don't scroll down that far, I just look for new posts or go to the forum I want to post in if I'm starting a new thread. Thanks for pointing that out, I hate to misinform people. There you go, D42!
