    Has anyone else noticed that they can't rate threads in the political forum? Or is it just me.

    I find it funny that all the threads on this page have 5 stars for threads by the resident wackos (Foggy) and the like-minded, and everything else has 1 star, and yet for some reason my voting ability is disabled.

    Looking to one of the mods for clarification on this.

    Only VIPs can rate threads now...the ratings have been slanted on both sides by the VIPs, not just by the right wingers.

    By VIP you mean someone who donated to the political forum?

    Since when did this website start to become a paying website where not paying gives less privileges? Is this also the case on the main football forum?

    anyone who donated to the website.

    See the red names on threads? Those are people who gave $18 to defer the costs of running the site, thus the VIPs.

    VIPs have been around. The change in the thread rating abilities only came about a two weeks ago. VIPs have had their own access to all the NFL news stories in the VIP forum and certain games in the games area.

    And it's the same for the entire site not just for this forum.

    Why does anyone even care about thread ratings in the first place? Seriously people, this is a forum on the internet! :confused:

    More than a few must have complained about them to bring about the change...even if it isn't doing much for this forum as people are still playing with the ratings.

    Crap like this is what must drive Ian crazy. Imagine having a real life to worry about. Like a wife, a job, etc. only to have to take care of this website, and all the little immature idiots that post here, whining and complaining about stupid thread ratings! Seriously, people need to grow a set, and quit crying all the time. THIS IS THE INTERNET! :banned:

    BTW, worse might be the total retahd who decides he's going to rate all his threads a 10, and all everyone elses a 1. Get a life whoever you are! :banned: :banned:

    Double banned for that loser. :D

    Thanks, once again, for your ringing endorsement. So much compassion is hard to digest in one sitting. :rolleyes:

    However, if you check carefully -- operative term there -- you will see that a number of threads I've started have been one-starred or two-starred; some have no rating at all.

    If you note, also, you will see that I am not (yet) a VIP member, so I have no ability to rate any of the threads, including of course my own.


    Have a SWELL day!!! :D......... :singing:................:yeeha:

    Yeah, didn't you hear? You have to pay a "penny a post" as punishment for subjecting everyone to your wacky posts. You owe $65 ;)

    I know what VIP is efin, and know when it first was instituted.

    However, the change where only VIP's can vote in the political forum, is recent. Anyone can still vote in any other forum, I believe.

    I agree the ratings are pretty silly. It's more amusing than anything else, to see the wacky ratings going on especially in this forum.

    This is such a silly topic, but it's funny you keep insisting this when I can clearly see the 'rate thread' button on the main football forum.

    Well you shouldn't. Ian's even posted in the VIP forum that thread ratings have been disabled in all forums for regular users. It's not some wicked conspiracy or plan by the Right Wing in this forum to silence the liberals. If you want to rate threads, donate. And I'm not saying that in a snide manner, by the way.

    I am looking at the main forum, eight threads with star ratings from one to five stars among the 50 or so threads...along with three of the four sticky threads up at top. Every one of those threads with the exception of the stickies is from the last 24 to 36 hours, so you are talking out your butt about this.

    And FYI this is the post on VIP forum about the thread ratings from Ian himself:

    No mention of it being this forum only, it was for all forums. But continue with the bug up your butt about this forum being the only one to have the ratings VIPs only :rolleyes:
