You can rate your own threads


Recommended Posts

You generally don't want to let users give themselves reputation, right?

Well, have you ever noticed that you can rate your own threads here?

It's not a bug, but I am in support of preventing users from doing this.

Or maybe you could just change the vote to "1 star" whenever a user tries to give their own thread a 5 star rating.

I disagree. I don't really have users who use the thread ratings, but I like to give stuff ratings so they show up in the metadata.

Well, that's kind of an abuse of the function. It's not intended to allow you to promote 5 star ratings on all your threads to search engines, it's meant to allow your members to rate your threads.

Definitely not insulting you for doing it, though I may not personally be in favor of it, just saying "that's not its primary purpose."

But I agree that keeping this as a setting may be the best option.

Well I don't give stuff five stars really. :S

Actually I hardly ever do ratings as it is..generally I forget. When I do do it though it's because of the metadata.

Honestly I would just get rid of thread ratings entirely. The whole 1-5 rating system is pretty outdated. These days it's just like or dislike anyway.
