One thing to watch Money, is to see which people have been here the longest by seeing how many posts they have along with star ratings.

Even by doing that, there is still no guarantee.

The star system is for show IMO, it's just too bad that the newbies don't see it as that.

Don't know much about stocks yet, but i know a lot about message boards.
If you are a newbie here and looking to take someones advice, just do a seach (top of the page) on the persons name and check past posts.

rookies tend to over rate stars. maybe they just want a quick answer and read into messages way too much instead of doing DD. in the biginning i was guilty of that.

In that case, I have been here the longest out of everyone in this trend (4-2002). Old name was "Bill2Drunk". (forgot password and have new email).


Star ratings do play a part in how I judge someone....but when they joined and how many posts they make plays a huge factor. Some of you have nothing to do but make POSTS....Obviously in most cases. I commented on a stock pick and got 3 votes of 1 star even though I was 100% correct. People here get pissy and give others 1 star votes if they feel that they don't agree or just don't like the name. A catchy name or a picture can do wonders....JELLY added her picture to her profile and now you guys a DROOLING....LOL...(no offence Jelly). She has been on this site for less than 6 months and she is mentioned as one of the GREATS. I think track record is the best way to tell who is BS and who isn't. Lately I have noticed a flood of NEWBIES here pumping/bashing...etc here and its too the point that I don't want to even read any of the posts.....especially under Stocks Under $0.10.


Stars are good but I would love to see who rates who what....maybe be able to click your profile and see....if you click your profile you can see who you rated anyways....why not the opposite?????

R1 Man, I see you disabled them stars.

Since being around as long as I have, which isn't long at all compared to good ole Tex [Wink] , I've come to trust some and understand others. And some just aren't worth piss....

If your a newbie you'll come to understand what I mean after a while. Then you'll become successful by watching and learning from those that do make money.

I have to agree that the rating should be based on many factors like was stated earlier by Dustoff.
Performance
DD
Honesty
and would add helpfulness.

There are many here who really try to help newbies and others that have no time or inclination to be helpful. Shoot if it wasn't for a few people here I would have lost everything and gone on to something else. I'm glad I'm still around. Learning all the time. Stars, I don't need no stinkin stars. I do however use them at times to look deeper into a particular poster. If he/she has 5 stars, I'll dig a bit deeper and see why. It's a frame of reference but only to dig deeper just like the stocks I play. Might use a scan and chart to find them but that just starts me diggin deeper.

Cool. I'm glad you guys brought up the issue of the peer rating system. I think it's very flat -- the stars can be used to gauge a user's popularity, that's about it.

allz ya gotta do is post well: make reasonable statements, provide some DD to back it up, then throw in a joke once in a while... [Roll Eyes]

Is there a way to change a rating I have given another member?

Is there a way for the administrator to change his own rating?
