Has there been any more thought to adding four ratings instead of three to the new question game as discussed earlier in the thread?
I play this game every day and rate the questions (and have done since it began) but to be honest I'm getting bored of doing it because as it stands now it's pretty meaningless so whats the point?
I think that Wesley said it would be better to have five ratings (like we have with normal quizzes). Either way, I doubt there has been any more thought or there would have been more discussion.
I don't understand why it is meaningless. You rate questions. If they are rated badly they are binned. If they are rated high (and have a good %age correct) then they get the author one step closer to a badge. If you score well they go through to Piece of Cake (or something like that). If you score badly they go through to Obscurity (or something like that). Why is it meaningless?
You earn points. You can earn team points. You can even earn a couple of badges. If you don't care about questions being rated or authors seeing the fruits or their labours then that's fine (well actually it isn't - it's a bit selfish), but I would think you certainly care about points, team points and badges.
