Right, well if it isn't so important, lets start giving each other red ratings for the heck of it. We aren't going to do that because we don't want red ratings back. Therefore, for you to not want that, it would imply you care about the rating system as well. Maybe not as much, granted, but it is important to all of us that we don't get red ratings if we didn't deserve it.

Some of us don't stop there.. some of us think it is important that we don't get yellow ratings if we didn't deserve it. Is it so hard to see that jump?

A perfectionist student in school studies hard for his exams only to get a C. He asks the professor why he got such a grade, and the professor says "Oh well, I never cared much about the grading system, so I put random letters on people's grades now." This analogy is an exaggeration of course, but it isn't so far from the truth. Is it wrong for me to put extra thought into my posts because I refuse to have a 'C' grade? Just understand that what isn't so important to you might be important to someone else, and respect should be given to such people as I would give respect to Martin or Frank if you were in my shoes.

Aside from that, if there weren't a ranking system, I'd still post this way I promise. My goal isn't to get greens, but I certainly wouldn't want reds just like I wouldn't want yellows so much either.

There we go. You are a prefectionist. A "petit ambitieux".
Do you belong to those students who get a 5.5 (1 bad, 6 best) and immediately run over the teacher because he may have missed one point and therefore you should get a 6 and nothing else.
I always hated this attitude.
Me getting a 3.5 with much luck and the other guy is almost crying and screaming because he has been marked sooo bad.
Well I can live with this guys but... you know.
You should learn to deal with the ratings. You shouldn't get upset when you get rated yellow or not at all. You can get very upset if someone rates you red. Everything else should be damn unimportant to us. Should...

Wrong! We aren't going to rate Red, because Red has a function different to the one you discribe. Its so to speak not part of the scale regular users are using. You just refuse to understand it! Why??

Yes. Since you really seem to have a problem here. How can you still speak of "deserve" in connection to your own posts? I thought we made clear that rating is a subjective question of taste that you cant predict, less than ever demand.

Just understand that what isn't so important to you might be important to someone else, and respect should be given to such people as I would give respect to Martin or Frank if you were in my shoes.

You are speaking of respect?? Have you ever thought about what it means to enter a community that exists in parts for five years and demand to change the rules just that it suits you?

The whole point of yellow and red ratings are to ward off jerks from this site, not to bash some well-written post, Martin.

You just seem unwilling to get it.
Yellow is no penalty! Yellow rates youup!

Most every post deserves a green rating here.

Oh no, not every one. There are also small comments and stuff like that which don't deserve a green rating but rather no rating.

About the "essays": Some users here really have the time to write looong, educational, well well written posts. The others have not. It is nice to read these essays but as soon as they are too long I don't have the time to read. Throughout the day I am working hard and without Internet and in the evening I only spend an hour or so in the net when I am alone at home. At weekends I can just have a quick look at new posts, then go. And it is okay because there are more important things in life.
But I like NAO and I like some users also very much so I want to be a part of this little circle, write my opinion, discuss.
But how have the chance to mix in when I have to deal with 6 new topics, twenty new posts, all quite long, some difficult written...?
I appreciate that people here take their time to think about there posts and search for good words, add links, blah blah. But I prefer short, precise posts without big expositions and statements.

Hmm

Being a perfectionist has never let me down. I'm sorry if you don't like that attitude, but it is just the way I am. It doesn't mean I do everything to be the best, but it just means I can't settle for less. And so you can understand how I can be upset when I put so much thought into a post and get a yellow. It wasn't that I was expecting a green, but for the effort I put into it...

Am I a loner on this one?

If your self-esteem needs green votings, or your ego can't accept anything below the best, I think you have a serious problem.
You know, people can like you even when you're getting yellow (or no) ratings. Nobody is perfect, and always expecting to be considered perfect is bound to lead to disappointment. If you want to be a perfectionist that's perfectly okay with me, but how can you expect us to blindly support you on this against our own beliefs?
Why don't you just try to say "hey, I've got a yellow rating, that's half a green one!" instead of "f*ck, I'd really have deserved a green one for this." Everybody here respects your opinion, and you as a person, but you've gotta do us the same favour... which may mean that you've got to accept one's decision to give you a yellow rating. You want to be the best? Write posts that everybody likes! Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't. That's how it is for pretty anybody here. But don't try to force positive ratings. It just won't work. And even if it worked, it would be nothing but self-deception.
