Do you rate discussions after you read them?

It only takes a few second's to rate a discussion as helpful or NOT helpful.
And it makes the percent's a lot more useful for all of us.

I don't know how to rate a discussion. Can somebody tell me how? Can someone tell me where to go to rate a discussion?

Go to the top of the page for any discussion and look beneath th first post. There is a "rate discussion" option you can click on there.

The way I look at it, if it was someones thought, why not rate it?

Up until I saw this discussion I had no idea how, but now I do!

I rate many, if not most. I definitely rate the ones I consider of interest and help to pretty much everyone. Like some of you, I do not necessarily rate those that could help others, but just doesn't apply to me. I do rate those that I think are just silly and useless, as well as ones that seem only to serve the purpose of the person starting the discussion.

What do you mean about "serving only the purpous of the person starting the discussion"?
Most of my discussions are questions that I have. I need an answer or does that make it a bad discussion?

If I post a discussion and found that everyone was able to help me with my question (or not) I will rate it. If I found a post very interesting and can relate to it I will rate it. If I find a discussion of no value to me, I don't usually rate it, as that doesn't mean someone else might not get a lot from it. And finally, if there is some bad information in a post, or if it ends up in an argument, I will rate it then.

Yes I do. I think that it is a good idea. It gives others an idea as to how helpful or not the discussion is.

If I feel that a thread is helpful to me or it will be helpful to others I give a positive rating. If I feel it is helpful only to the person posting I give no rating at all. Some people need to get something off their chests and it makes them feel better to write it down. The replies can be very helpful to them personally so I would never give that thread a negative rating. I have never given any thread a negative rating. Even the jokes threads are helping some of us so they should not be given a negative rating either. People who give negative ratings to every thread except the ones that benrfit themselves are somewhat self centered. I try to never be self centered. I am sorry if I hurt anyone's feelings. Please forgive me if I have.

I rate the ones I find helpful whether personally or not, if someone benefits from the information then it's worth rating…I don't rate discussions not related to diabetes in some way though.

I didn't, because I didn't know where it was coming from. I guess I didn'e read the whole page or knew what it meant. I will from now on.

I rate them as to the how they relate to me, the ones that are not about my issues, I do not rate, just read. jackie

2009-02-14 05:16:12 -0600 Report

i sure do! it can be a strange business at times though! you might like something and you rate it and it comes up one hundered percent. then you go to rate another and it comes up fifty percent or less!
