    Because some people can't control themselves, everyone on the site must temporarily suffer.
    I have disabled noob, disagree, caught camping, vote to kick, and trolling ratings. FOR EVERYONE.

    If you feel like complaining you will likely know who to blame for inspiring my action. He had spammed numerous posts with troll ratings even posts that weren't even remotely close to trolling.

    I enabled these ratings as a way to express yourself without speaking (especially for our lurkers). I did not enable these ratings so you can spam bully new members of the site or people you dislike.

    If you are a part of this community, then you must understand we seek to grow and expand. We can't grow or expand if I continually allow members to go off the hook with spamming negative ratings and views.

    If you feel any love for this site or me, then I'd appreciate that you do so with positive vibes and good will.


    I expected the neutral ratings to be used in good humor, occasionally.
    I expected the negative ratings to be used when arguments or actual trolls appeared on the site.

    I understand some of you found this funny.
    Please look at it my way.

    If you were to walk into a bar or new school and had a few people comment on you in an offensive manner, would you feel welcome?

    Smart ass remarks need not reply. AS it is, most of you have feelings that seems worse than a female during that time of the month. Deny it publicly but I've received an enormous amount of complaints from many of you regarding other people's posts and actions.

    Not as much as some people. In extreme comparison. Perhaps if we follow the this Newton's Law of motion?
    To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction
    OR simply put
    Do unto others as you would like them to do to you.

    You rate posts negatively, then you get rated negatively.

    This issue is directly on our newcomers. When people you KNOW rate your post in a retarded way, you know they're being funny about it.

    Or in general. Not all your posts were rated trolling or vote to kick.
    Literally had one user who had nothing but negative votes by two individuals. Most posts did not require such ratings. The user did not even get into an argument with the 2 people who spam rated them.

    This is specifically what's going on. I and other staff have had to constantly remove ratings before users sign on, so we don't get an ear full about how they don't understand what's happening.

    You know that TF isn't the one who disabled them right? lol. In fact, if I'm correct, persht outright admitted in her post that it was her. So why are you still blaming TF? It was that f'in butthurt Mrs. OuttLaw Cassidy :D

    I understand the reasoning for disabling. The new guy who was attempting to gather recruits got hit with a firestorm of neutral and negative ratings. It seemed many of the ratings were meant jokingly, but as a new member they would never know that.

    Also, it seemed like a typical poorly crafted thread by a new member to a forum. Anytime somebody rolls into town, unknown, and announces how great they are they or their crew is they risk this sort of greeting. (tbh ANYONE who brags about their video game crew DESERVES to get e-slapped for being pathetic - no joke)

    I liked the neutral ratings. If noob and troll disappeared forever I don't think it'd be a bad thing. Groups of people cannot be trusted to self moderate. That said I think TequilaFire is a great moderator. You want to see a shitty mod check out Valjina at RD.net... he's 80% disabled. (his claim not mine)

    lmfao! Yeah in time I will reintroduce the neutral ratings. I'm looking into a way to disallow ratings on members who have less than X amount of posts.

    I'm not sure if I will ever get negative ratings back. Maybe in our TL section but not our main forums :(
