I have to apologize as for me its not that often. Not out of anything other missing to tick on the option as I tend to be forever looking at the next post.

I intend to try and make sure I do from now on. It is for the benefit of the forum after all :rolleyes:

Did you start the thread as a poll? Check box at the bottom of the New Thread "screen" need to scroll down to see it...

Drop Down on the far right hand side of the View First unread bar toward the top of the thread

Been here since the beginning of the year and never knew that. Must be getting senile :rolleyes:

I dont think mere mortals can convert a thread into a poll...

I believe your right will wait for admin to help out if possible :rolleyes:

Done!

And added my vote as "never". Like John I've been a member here 5 years and I only noticed the vote thread feature the other day!

I don't see the point - where do you see ratings anyway?

Thanks Andrew,

the ratings are underneath were you type a post bottom left. I have read its to help with the running of forum.

The only rating I ever notice is whether the person who asked the question is now sorted, or has understood etc Is the rating denoting a level of interest, excitement even or that fact that the emergency services weren't needed after all! :rolleyes::D

I notice that sometimes there can be a great difference between threads that have been read by a lot of people but with few actually contributing and conversely, where there is a lot of participation with the viewing totals being only slightly more. So I'm not clear on what its purpose is. Any ideas?

Voted for 'never'. Who am I to say if a thread is good or not ???

I think its ok to at least give a rating if for instance you have been helped by a thread even if you were not the thread starter.

It could may been very informative or just plain funny.

That's my thinking on it anyway, would not wish to give a bad impression on anyone's view of a certain topic so would not vote bad in that instance.

Am looking on the bright side of the forum with this and as a relative beginner I am very grateful for many of the topics and the answers replied on them so am happy to let that be known to the team running SGL.

Never, but I would use the rep system if it was ever turned on (you rep a user who makes a good post.)

I haven't been a member here for that long but even so, I never noticed the 'Rate' drop down menu tab. I would never rate whether a thread is good or not. That would be unfair to the author in my humble opinion. It's not my place to judge whether a thread is worth five or One star. I pick and choose the threads that I feel would be of interest and benefit to me and I'll either take it or leave it.
