Why say "Friggin nice" when you just rated it 4? At least have the courage of your convictions.

I'm going to remove that 4 vote; you consistently trash rate while saying you think much higher of the pic and on any other elderscrolls site you would have been banned by now, don't test my patience any further.

Great job. This is awesome. Looks nearly like real life. I rate a perfect 10. This is one of the best pictures here, in my opinion.

I'll rate whatever the hell I choose. You don't seem to realize that this is the internet. Its like people who put pictures online and hope they won't get stolen. If I want your image it doesn't matter if you disable right clicking and whatever else. I will get it. Even watermark isn't really a deterrent unless its really thick. Point being, if I want to vote 0 or 4 or 10 on everything regardless of whether or not I like it I will damn well do it and you can't stop me. You can IP block me and ban my user name if you want, there are still dozens of ways for me to come in here and vote whatever I want (and a lot more than once). If you don't like the way I vote, block/ban me and see what happens. You'll only end up changing your filter to not include votes under 8 and there will be no point the the voting system any more.

Or here's an idea. Leave it alone. If I truly feel something deserves a 10, I will vote 10. If I think something that is a 9.5 deserves to be lower, I'll vote 4 if I choose to. Got beef?

So you're actually admitting that rather than rating a picture what you think it deserves, you rate it lower in order to make the overall score lower? So you want to invalidate the votes of everyone else who thinks it should rate higher? In other words, yours is the only opinion that counts?

And no, sorry, this isn't "the internet". It's a specific site on the internet, with a specific administrator, with specific rules. Yes, you can always find some way around those rules, if you actually care that much & have that much time to waste & are so incredibly upset by someone trying to run the site fairly & maintain some sense of common decency. *shrug*

Just to clarify further what I mean with the voting thing.

The "Average User Rating" is intended to be just that: the average of what all users think of the picture. So it *should* work like this:
Person A thinks the picture is worth a 10, and so Person A rates it a 10.
Person B thinks the picture is worth an 8, and so Person B rates it an 8.
The site then averages those two votes, and that becomes its rating. Fine & very fair. That is then the actual *average* score of all users' opinions.

What *shouldn't* happen:
Person A thinks the picture is worth a 10, and so Person A rates it a 10.
Person B thinks the picture is worth an 8, and so Person B rates it a *2*.
*Now* the "average" score isn't the average of *all* users' opinions at all - it's been "trash rated" down to match only the opinion of Person B. Person B has manipulated the rating to relfect only his or her personal opinion, rather than letting it be truly an "Average User Rating".

This is why Llama instituted the monitoring system & the instant deletion of anonymous trash votes, and why Floydian1 must continue it. It's not that he's imposing his will or viewpoint upon the population here - he's simply correcting for scenario B above.

If someone truly believes a picture is entirely horrid & wants to rate it a 3 or 4, write out a nice comment explaining that (surely there's lots you could be telling the artist about improving - something that low certainly would call for tips like removing the HUD, etc. wink ). If you truly believe a picture deserves a 7 or 8, then rate it 7 or 8 -- and accept that if the average score stays higher, the general public didn't agree with you. Heck, I've had to accept the general public not agreeing with me ever since Max Headroom was cancelled. stick out tongue
