Default Is the rating system a thing of the past?

I've been out of the loop for a couple of weeks (Ivan). I noticed that the rating option is not available. Is this a glitch or a permanent thing? If it is gone, I'm all for it!

TIA
C

There have been a couple posts the past week or so asking Daven to turn the rating system off. Most felt that we gave 10 because we wouldn't want to hurt someone's feelings - thus defeating the purpose of the system.

Here is one of the threads about it:

There was some debate over the issue a little while back. I can honestly say, I won't miss it. It seemed that 10 was almost always used (I'm guilty, too) so it didn't have much significance. I think a high number of comments usually indicates that many who view the card feel it worthy of comment. If there are a lot of comments on a card I investigate as to what made it so. I often find out something about it that I had missed when viewed as a thumbnail in the gallery. Having posted cards, I never paid atention to the ranking but really valued the comments. I think it was wise to drop the ranking.

I noticed it was there earlier today. I'm guessing that maybe the rating feature was turned off because of the discussions going on.

The same discussion has come up a number of times, and it was decided that we would do away with the ratings and keep the comments field open.

The ratings option was turned off this afternoon.

Excellent! I agree with cot10girl - the feedback is what's important. Thank you for taking the suggestion(s) to remove the ratings to heart!

Yup, I don't think we need a number-type rating system. I think comments are the way to go! Thanks!

Thanks for the info. I'm glad it is gone. I like and rely on the comments much more! I have so much catching up to do!

Well done, Daven! I don't think the rating system will be missed!

Thank you so much! I was never much for the rating anyway. I just like to leave comments.

I look at lots of cards, but do not leave comments very often because I felt I had to also leave a rating. But rating a card seemed so subjective because something that I might like a lot would not appeal to another person and vice versa. I am very happy to see the rating option turned off and will definately be commenting more, now that I don't feel that obligation to leave a rating.

Thanks to Daven and the SCS team for making this change!
