One was, hence my slightly embarassing rating.
However, it is important for people to realize that these ratings aren't really important. They give you a general indication
of an individuals contribution to this site. If you make lots of excellent posts, your rating will be high. If you consistently make poor posts, you'll either have no rating or you'll have a poor one. It's ridiculous to assume the staff have the time to rate every good/bad post, or to think that each staff members will grade things in the exact same manner.
Make your own minds up. This place isn't so vibrant with activity that you can't remember who the "good" posters are. If we did away with the ratings tomorrow, I would still know which members post with quality. Wouldn't you?
As for the "I haven't seen this guy make a good post wtf how did he get a 5 wtf lololol" comment (paraphrased for effect)... well, that may be the case. Some of us have been on the site since it's inception. I doubt you've seen me make any good posts either, but that's not to say I didn't in the past. Whether I ever did or not, however, is completely irrelevant here. But I did. Hopefully.
Also, to be quite frank, Soccer11 has done a lot for this site; he deserves credit. Personally, I think ratings can diminish from the staff somewhat and are therefore a tad detrimental at times. But that's just me... I don't really pay attention to them. Not since I lost my 5. Hah!
Now I'll return to my cupboard. If Rome_Leader would be kind enough to lock the door, that would be just super
