Like I said in the other thread. Its actually multiple people, since way before this there were already people with a lot of downvotes on their profiles and a lot of downvotes on various threads.

Though the star system would work if it was used as intended. Again like I said in the other thread, if it wasn't used to automatically downvote for no reason, downvote just cause don't like someone (especially all the mass downvotes of anyone keeping exotics/invasives, not a valid reason to downvote someones profile. And this happens to multiple people), and upvote for no reason or upvote just cause like someone, it would actually work a lot better. Some people use it correctly to upvote the thread's actual content, so kudos to them. But the rating system is kinda broken.

(edit: Also drew, zeiss and someone else in chat all think the star system doesn't matter and best to be ignored. Seems pointless to have it then if it doesn't matter)

Zeiss was the only one in the chat that said anything about it.

I find this slightly ironic seeing as the whole reason this started was due to a journal being rated poorly.

Ants I have:

1 Formica fusca group- 0 workers

1 Tetramorium immigrans colony-20 workers

1 Dorymyrmex insanus- 1 queen, used to have workers

 

1 large P. occidentalis colony- around 50 workers, plenty of brood

I made the thread about people being rated, not a journal. As far as I know there was no discussion of this before this.

You had for a few minutes back there, perhaps it was a glitch as its back to showing 5 stars now.
