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)

Major T. J. "King" Kong: Well, boys, I reckon this is it - nuclear combat toe to toe with the Roosskies.  That goes for ever' last one of you regardless of your race, color or your creed. Now let's get this thing on the hump - we got some flyin' to do.

Ahhh Yes! Slim Pickens from 1 of my all time favorite films. I do see the similarities T/S! Very clever!!

Especially when Major Kong rides the nuke warhead all the way down like a rodeo bull. 

Yeeeehaaawwwwwww!!!!!!!!

" we'll meet again,...

 dont know how, dont know when..."

Yossarian: Let me see if I've got this straight: in order to be grounded, I've got to be crazy and I must be crazy to keep flying. But if I ask to be grounded, that means I'm not crazy any more and I have to keep flying.

Major T. J. "King" Kong: Well, boys, I reckon this is it - nuclear combat toe to toe with the Roosskies. Now look, boys, I ain't much of a hand at makin' speeches, but I got a pretty fair idea that something doggone important is goin' on back there. And I got a fair idea the kinda personal emotions that some of you fellas may be thinkin'. Heck, I reckon you wouldn't even be human bein's if you didn't have some pretty strong personal feelin's about nuclear combat. I want you to remember one thing, the folks back home is a-countin' on you and by golly, we ain't about to let 'em down. I tell you something else, if this thing turns out to be half as important as I figure it just might be, I'd say that you're all in line for some important promotions and personal citations when this thing's over with. That goes for ever' last one of you regardless of your race, color or your creed. Now let's get this thing on the hump - we got some flyin' to do.

Is this difficult to understand?You mean giving us, the posters and community members what we actually want?  Then, apparently, yes.  But, if it is change for the sake of change, and tweaking things that needed to be done away with, while continuing to ignore things that have been clearly and continually communicated to the powers that be?  They understand that.  They know they "have us", because they also know that there is nowhere else to go that is as good as this flawed product is.

Sorry to be so negative, Sky, but there were no announcements about the coming changes so it was all quite a shock. 

Totally understandable X-man. I dont mean to be so negitive either. After yet another "attempt" to improve the system - it is even more confusing. This rating system makes NO sense. The less you post, the better your rating. What is this, some Federal program?  is just so frustrating to many well meaning people here AND its such a easy fix.

IF you are going to have a "rating" system... at least make a legit attempt to make sense.

For instance: Reward those who DO participate, not those who DON'T.

Is this difficult to understand?

About quitting posting and having your rating go up, the same thing happened to me.  When I quit posting as RandyB, I went back after about 2 months and made one post.  The next day I was ranked in the top 10!  I didn't post anymore and it soon dropped, but I haven't posted under that name in 5 months and I think RandyB is still Top 1K!Exactly Rock. As further proof - check the Featured Member each week. 2 Weeks ago it was a Top 10: Prof Mercury. This person had NOT posted a single thing the entire month of December, and I recall there was over 30 days since Prof Mercurys last post.

 It reminds me of that Tim McGraw song.  Back when a hoe was a hoe, Coke was a coke And crack's what you were doing When you were cracking jokes
Back when a screw was a screw The wind was all that blew And when you said I'm down with that
Well it meant you had the flu.

I do believe  has found the theme song for the "ratings change." 

Seriously, WHATS the difference? A 10 was a 5, now a 5 is a 2.5.

Either the people who maintain this site for CBS are ripping them off.

-OR-

This site is just some rich old ladies tax write off.

Thats why I don't chase a fictional rating. IF that was my concern, I woulda been gone a long time ago.

As long as they don't mess with the fantasy point ratings, it cool.

I see we now have a whole new layer of posting now with this blog feature.  Question.  Did anyone ask for this or any of the other changes I have noticed so far today?  Probably not.  I already had a hard enough time keeping up with posting in the areas we had, now I have more.  Great.

Sorry for the semi-rant Skydog.  Just back from a very long weekend to see that my community has been turned upside down.

Other than that, everything is ducky.
