Scott,

Any way to change the rating system to apply the rating of a single post instead of the rating of a particular poster?

We all have a post or two that the masses don't like... I'm submitting this because I really liked a recent post of a poster, and their rating went from a 2 to a 5. Seems strange due to one post and one review.... I didn't like several previous posts of this poster, but I thought the current post (and maybe several others I didn't bother to rate) was spot on.

Rate the post and not the poster seems like a good mantra to me....

Hi John,

The Forums are the one part of DCSki where I didn't write the code from scratch. I use a commercial software package called UBB.threads to power the Forums. I try to avoid making changes to the code as I want to keep it in sync with new commercial releases, for example to apply security patches. So I'm afraid I'm not in a position to change the behavior of ratings system in the Forums. Sorry! I do try to update the Forum software from time to time, so if that feature makes it into UBB.threads, it will eventually flow through to DCSki.

Extending my logic even further, I think I'm gonna rate my life to be 2 stars. Maybe 3 stars during ski season.

Scott, this thread was just a random brain dump.

I usually don't have the opportunity to feel bad about any of my posts...Scott deletes them before it gets to that point...Heck, sometimes whole threads!

just fyi... I have officially switched over to Winter Beer. Started today with a case of the basic Sammy Winter Lager. Actually started Halloween nite with a pint of homemade coffee stout over at a friends house, but that was just a recon trip. Now it is official. Skiing must be really close.
