Rate the post above you

Postby tastelikecoke » Mon Jun 14, 2010 3:49 am UTC

an obvious ripoff of rate the avatar above you and it's successor, rate the signature above you.
It's simple. Here's how:

guy1: Hello world!
guy2: That's a lame programming reference. 1/10
guy3: It's more entertaining than your post. 0/10.
guy4: Plus points for the word entertaining. 8/10
guy5: You're funny. 9/10.
guy6: You're lame. 0/10.

so we are writing a review of a review of so on.

RULES!
1. NO Double posting.
2. NO offensive content.
3. NO smoking, and NO Flash photography.

Necroing old threads is frowned upon as far as I know ("they died for a reason"), but on the other hand, I like all sorts of interesting old threads turning up on the front page.

I believe necroing threads is preferred over starting a redundant thread here, so previous post might be incorrect, but it might still be frowned upon anyways, so ?. In any case, failed to address this fact. Also failed to address the fact that Freddino18 didn't include a proper rating and instead put an amount of money; but the post I'm rating does have a proper rating. 4/10

Banned for not getting an obscure reference to an inside joke.

Reprimands someone for not getting an obscure reference, but not even attempting to reveal what it references or why it is supposed to be entertaining. Additionally it is quite brief.

Unfortunately, it would take much more that 60000 characters to explain. Sorry.

Apology.
There's no review of the post above, just a rating. Technically okay, but ta rating without any explanation is quite bleak.

Slightly below one vowel per three alphabetic characters. A marginally lower rate than this line.

Rating starts out looking like pi/10, but stops before I can cut off a slice. 22/70

As an American, I object to the British shorthand version of "Mathematics". I also find it amyosing when the Berts try to coract my spelling of Aluminum.
I like the informality of all of the lowercase "I"'s, though.

As a Hungarian speaking English as a second language I object to the little differences between US and UK English. They should only exist under the condition that noone takes them seriously.
Nonetheless, Aluminum just looks misspelled to me.

As an American speaking Spanish as a second language, I also hate the need for regional differences, but I am forced to accept that the creation of a new dialect is a side effect of colonization, and (apparently) not a conspiracy against foreigners to confuse them. Who is "Noone"? I believe that is wrong in both American and British English.

An adequate bump and a polite req... oh wait

Clever rebuttal of the prevoius poster's complaints in a pastiche-like form. The nitpicking about grammar is a neat reprise of the dichotomy in said post, albeit I feel the minor spelling mistake doesn't warrant such sarcastic remarks.

Not bad overall, but failed to point out that after some time (one week? two?) a 'bump page' button becomes available at the bottom of the page, which would have been a much nicer solution. The rating was not given in a proper format but did pertain to the content.

5/10
