What has happened to the ratings we could leave in the gallery?

As my nephews say they have misappeared!

Yes, I wondered about that to?!? Where are our little stars to click on :(

You guys don't miss a thing! LOL

They have been removed as we decided that they were sometimes not always helpful / appropriate............and a comment is really much nicer to receive.

THANK YOU, Robyn and whoever's decision that was!!!

I really think this was a good idea!
No layout or contribution deserves a very poor rating and noone should be hurt with it.
My personal opinion is you can find something beautiful in everyone's work and each of the creators deserves respect and positive recognition since they lay all their talent and effort in their creations. :))

Well said Manu! I know some of you really liked using them to add to your comments, but some were using them for low ratings and not leaving a comment at all - overall, even a simple "thanks" or "beautiful" or "nice page" in a comment is better than just the rating ;)

Well said!!! I was so hurt by a less than 10 rating I got that I almost decided to never upload another layout to the gallery.(mind you, I said "almost"!) ;) I wasn't hurt that she didn't like my layout----believe me, that is your personal opinion, that doesn't bother me at all----what hurt is the fact that she would put it out there in public for all to see!! Remember the saying---"if you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all!!!!"

That happened to me too. It was on a recipe card. I just don't know why some one has to be mean. It bothered me all day. I almost stopped doing the recipe challenge. But, I enjoy it so much I just couldn't give up on it. I do get some really nice comments and those keep me scrapping. Thanks for taking those off.

Yes I agree and am glad they're gone. Comments are much nicer :)

Re: the ratings
 
Oh my, I never thought someone would use a low rating. I try to leave comments but as I explained somewhere else, my hands don't work too well after awhile and typing suffers. I hope no one gets upset when I leave a short comment. I also wish there were more comments left by members ... not just the "staff". Good decision.

I did wonder if it was something like that, good decision then!

Thank you for removing them! I like Nancy, was very hurt by a rating I got....a 4 no less.
No comment, just a 4..... like I have always told my kids....follow the rules for Thumper....
If you Can't say something Nice....then Don't say Nuthin at all!!!!!! (written in thumper terms, LOL)

I too am glad that is gone I always leave a comment and if I saw something that was outstanding I would always rate a 10 but some in the Designers Contest were thinking this is how they were being voted on and am glad that they got rid of the rating stars now! I too think a comment is way way better! I have tried to comment on every thing in the layout contest and I know I might miss a few but do try and go back!

Re: the ratings
 
I believe people may have used it as a rating for the actual contest and that's not the way it's supposed to be used. Some people do take it personally, and art is so subjective anyway. I personally never used it. A comment means so much more. Looks like a win-win to me.

I agree Cathy "If you've got nothing good to say . . . "

I agree with all, it is much nicer to lave a comment. We all have our own styles and likes/dislikes, we are all unique in our creation. All that are posted are great and I think we all get inspiration , ideas and thoughts from ALL postings in the gallery. Thank you for removing the rating, much better !!

I am so glad they are gone, too. Comments should encourage others, not discourage them. Last year I tried the NDC and someone gave me a TWO! Talk about feeling lousy, not just for the day, but for a long, long time.
Thanks, for making a very good decision! :-)

Re: the ratings
 
A TWO!!! How mean was that! I wonder if people who leave that sort of rating realize just what sort of effect that can have on the person who has just put their all into something. It's so demoralizing! If you are like me, my self-confidence is pretty fragile and it doesn't take much to cut me down. I know my eldest daughter would just say 'Toughen up mum and suck it up!'

When I first started out in scrapbooking some years back I received some not very complimentary comments about the first thing I ever posted. My 'glorious career' in digital scrapbooking very nearly didn't even make it off the starting blocks. I was devastated.

A "Two"?! Well, you have to pity the poor person that left it, they must be a very unhappy soul to be so mean spirited! I don't think I ever used the rating system but I'm also glad it's no longer there. Excellent decision to remove it !

I'm speechless (and it takes a lot to let that happen *lol*)!
Big hugs, a two is just...no words for that.
