[Suggestion] Removal of Rating system for Threads
#1
Hi,

I would like to suggest removing the rating system for threads in forums. Reason being:
1) It is now obsolete and redundant
2) Prevents users from abusing the system

Hope this suggestion can be taken into consideration, thanks and cheers Smile

Hello, 

Thank you for the your suggestion. However, I personally don't see a need to remove. 

1) Hardly anyone uses the thread rating as a factor for how good a thread is. 
2) hence even if it is "abused" we see no adverse effects. 

You may wish to state which threads you feel have their thread ratings "abused" so that we can have a better understanding of your concern.

Regards,

Most of these threads included in the link below have their ratings abused:

And apparently, it clearly shows that this is a personal attack by a user in this forums.
And hence, this is the very reason why I have requested to remove the rating system for threads to prevent such a thing from ever happening again in future
