    I think it may be because either 1] members may not be aware of it (bottom right corner of the page, you can assign a rating of 1 thru 5 to a thread) or 2] just aren't overly concerned with assigning a "value" figure.

    Just my thoughts!

    I think it is hard to rate a thread considering what I think is repetitive information, or "everyone knows that" may save the next guy hours of frustration. TO me the thread may be a 1, but to him it would be tops!

    I don't use it for all of the above reasons. I just don't see a point in starting a "ratings" war! That could serve to make us reluctant to post.

    Kind of seems useless to me. Does it have to be there, I mean is it part of the template or something that could be removed and give more room to the page? All of us don't have large screens.
