Post Ratings typo
« on: April 18, 2016, 08:46:22 am »
Basically, I really like this new rating system, with its depth that goes far beyond generic like-dislike. I like that you can see a member's rating breakdown as well. When you do that, though, there's a frustratingly common typo present.

Besides fixing it, I would also like to make another suggestion. All of the ratings here generally get used whenever appropriate and add to the discussion. However, I, and a few other users, are not really sure as to what the big difference between Informative and Useful is supposed to be. In our forum, we usually either have Informative, or give Useful ironically (though Informative is used ironically as well.) Perhaps other communities employ this function more, but on the whole, trimming it might not be a bad idea.

The one rating that should be present in its place, though (or alongside it, if you decide to keep Useful) is a Confused one. We do get posts that technically have fine grammar but are nevertheless unclear either regarding their content or relevance to the discussion, and a Confused rating with some form of a question mark icon would be helpful here.
