Rate the new CBS rating system...

How 'bout dem rating changes? Wow! This will really make a difference!

I rate it 3 stars for fair, or the same...  no improvement.

Other than losing such memorable ratings as "Bad"... I think I will miss 6 and 9 the most.

Not meaning to be sarcastic, BUT I was really hoping for a "Graranimals" rating system.

You know... like the clothes for kids to dress themselves with that Sears made in the '70's? ( match the giraffe shirt with the giraffe pants, etc...)

Top rating to Bottom: (Keep in mind anything less than 10 is bad, just like always.)

10.Magical Unicorn

9. Possom

8. Groundhog

7. Jackal

6. Baboon

5. Turkey

4. Lemming

3. Buzzard

2. Rat

1. Donkey (Jackass)

Hey X-man,

I hear ya man. Its like the powers that be try to destroy their own site. I try to just accept the site for what it really is, and hang around for the good friends here; like yourself. 

I posted this before, but I think its time to play it again...

 I left in Aug. 2007 at Top 1K. I came back 2 months later and within 3 days I was a almighty Top 10!   ???

Since posting reguarly and winning my fantasy football league, I have dropped back through Top 100, and now I'm Top 1K again.

Heres the real trump: I put CBS Top 10 on a loan application and the bank said my CBS rep was worthless! Can you imagine?????? Something about the real world...

The rating / reputation system is a marketing tool yall. They know sports fans are in general competitive people. They will compete for a higher ranking and spend more time on the site to achieve the high rank. More time spent on site = more $ CBS can charge for ads.

Sky my only problem is still the adjusted ratings. I, like many people, gave a 10 for things I liked and didn't rate those I disliked, just ignored. But, if you don't rate negative things now your good rating is cut in half, to me this gives power to the trolls, cause as many zero's as they give. it actually rates their 10 as an adjusted  9, 8, or 7 as opposed to our adjusted 5.

I agree, I hate the tiny avatars, I dont like the stars and how they're in the top corner I dont like how they dont have spell check, and I can't figure out how im supposed to get my ranking up because Ive been at like 88/89 for like a month, and I got to 90 when I wasn't posting but now im back to 89.

HILARIOUS Skydog!

Yes, anything less than a ten in that system really is quite bad.
