    Thumbs down Some unsuitable ratings in the galleries

    I saw this very cool wallpaper from Cldmani, and wtf, there are two members gave him insanely low ratings, like 2.00 :Thumbd: and what's more... they didn't comment at all!!!
    Can't the mods do something about those brainless ppl? just ban them or delete the gallery comment/rating....?
    because good wallpapers such as that really doesn't deserve such rating,... that's an abuse from an artist's point of view...
    and fyi, some of my wallpapers get those silly ratings too,... sometimes as low as 1.00 ..... WTF, ... if 6.00, I can understand that some ppl don't like my style or whatnot, but, rated 1.00?!?!? What grudge did that person have with me?!?
    okay, I'm ranting.. but honestly,.. if AO wants to have a better gallery (like the one before the update) this things should be sorted out...

    People have explained all of the reasons about this a countless number of times. I'll just simply say: people are entitled to their own opinions and reviews. Now, if you knew this, why have you complained about bad reviews? I'm sure a mod will tell you what to do and what not to do in feedback and suggestions. Next time try not to act so immature about it by starting a whole thread and simply leave it to yourself or put it in your journal.

    Also, moderators take note, I am not psuedo-modding. I am just simply saying my own opinion to this useless thread. So don't tell me I am, I don't need to hear it.

    KorganoS, I believe in the long run, low (or even ultra-low) ratings are good. Why? Because they tend to encourage/challenge...well that's in my case, I dunno if it applies to others here, but yes, I think of it as a sign that I have to strive harder and harder. Well, I did a bit of military work back in college and maybe that experience somehow reinforced this attitude in me.

    All I can say to those who feel depressed when they get low ratings...cheer up! It means you still have some elbow room to IMPROVE! Now if a person doesn't improve, his skills/art stagnates and he basically rots XD So don't congeal people--feeling depressed is actually the moment of congealing (i.e. like cement or plaster of paris drying up into an inert lump)!--strive to be dynamic and more fluid...it helps a lot in the real world too, if one has this attitude. Be like water...because water is life.

    The staff has no control over what Members submit to the galleries as long as its not braking the rules. Hence your "rating" problem. People are intitled to their own opinions about a wall. I beleave before AO went down there was something in the TOS That "AnimeOnline is not responible for peoples actions, Opinions, or content" Unless it brakes the rules. I have limited control over the gallery I can't edit ratings or ban members from the gallery. If that what your entitions are you must speak to an admin via PM and not on the public board Thank you ^_^

    People give the ratings they think an image deserves, something may be cool and excellent in your point of view, but that same work it may look like crap to me. This is an issue that we have since the old AO (rating system), and there is and will be people who doesn't like it, tought I will say...

    You and everyone else is free to decide wheter an image is good or not (and to make a rating or post about it), we (mods) will not decide for you or interfere in your way of thinking and valuating the art in the gallery. We will only act If the comment breakes any of the rules of the site, giving 1.0 ratings does not break the rules.

    Even that we (staff) have the power to delete posts there is an agreement (since the first gallery was established) to respect people's opinions, so no action will be taken jsut for poor ratings.

    And don't you EVER AGAIN insult the members by calling them dorks because in that case it is you the one breaking the rules, and if you read the rules you will know what will happend. So far the staff has no problems with you, so keep the good record and be more civil about your rants.

    Exclamation

    Okay, first of all I want to apologize for ranting... somewhat I went overboard with that... <_<
    I've edited the thread title, and I want to imply that I have good intentions in making this thread,... getting flames and controversy is not my aim...
    It's just that ppl should respect other ppl's work better,...

    @Rodion : I just can't seem to understand what did u mean by 'Improve' by looking at those ultra-low ratings...
    I believe, the way to make ppl improve is to give useful comments, suggestions, and critiques... not by some immature ratings... which does not explains anything.

    I'd rather have a super-bashing comment than a 1.00 rating.... that just didn't say a thing about improving...
    fyi, I've been making walls since two years ago... not that long, I know,... I have received many critiques and super-bashings about my walls in several other forums and communities.. but what I experienced and see here is just out of my expectation..
    @Gallcomp : I respect you, man... but honestly, what is something you considered a 'crap' wall actually?
    If ppl don't like an artist's work, they might as well just leave it alone and not giving some destructive ratings... that's (sorry) immature...
    or even better, say something like 'I don't like this piece of crap, you should make the girl without clothes' or something like that in their comment... that would be something more useful..
    You see, a wallpaper or a doujin is something made by putting some serious effort..

    This thread is only something that came out of my nerves.. any mods can close this if they're willing to, no hard feelings..
    all I want to say is, be more considerate in commenting and rating other ppl's works, have some respect, especially if you haven't gone through the effort of creating one.
    Peace.

    edit: somehow I can't change my main thread title... >.< agh.. c'est la vie..

    You have a point re the 1-rating. It can be annoying. But I guess I just wanted people to act cordially to one another...for Chrissake's it's gonna be 2005 in a couple of days, then the thought of thousands dying in some parts of the world during Christmas. I guess it just depressed me to see people arguing and stuff. I don't believe in the saying "fight fire with fire" and thus when I see people having fun when they rate "1", well I say to myself, that's how they make themselves happy in this miserable world, pity, and go on with my life and try not to become irate at them, just leave them alone...life goes on with or without their "1" ratings. I guess this "leave them be" and "don't fight them" attitude is what it means to be "like Jesus" (maybe the Christmas spirit really got into me head), although I DON'T consider myself religious LOL you should see my porn collection XD.
