Do you rate every discussion you respond to and the responses already there?

Sometimes, I read a discussion, then post a response, I don't always remember to rate it. I have been trying to remember to rate them all, I even go back to the discussions I previously responded to just to make sure. I even try to rate other people's responses. I like to try to keep my ratings up, and I like to try to help others do the same. Do you rate every discussion you respond to and the responses already there from others?

Yes, I always rate every discussion I respond to and I rate some of the responses, only if I agree with them. I only rate with +, so if I disagree I just don't rate at all.

Even if I don't agree, I still will rate and especially if the point is well-given and even if it is against my principals. I think people who have high stars and high scores are mostly butt kissers. I like getting my stars and my points, but I can't be something I am not-which the point thing that mylotters use is not good. I have lost points and stars and I guess it's my punishment for being me.

I do try to rate everything i go through and do some negative reputing aswell when people tend to post same discussion even of their own again and again with their referral links i dont think posting once is bad but doing it again and again is really headache and should be taken as spamming aswell,yesterday i was responding to some discussions and saw one person posting same response in every discussion about his blog thing that was really annoying not even talking about the topic just promoting his blog,on the other hand i do give positive ratings to almost all of the discussions i respond to and if find some other good responses i rate them positively aswell as they are also a source to get some experience/inspiration from.

Even though I read all the responses I'm guilty of not always rating them. I also don't make comments to all the responses on my discussions. Sometimes after going back again I will rate the ones I missed earlier. maybe it just gives me something to do at that time. I don't know. Hahaha! Thanks. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

If I respond to a discussion I rate it and very very rarely do I respond to a discussion that I don't rate + I just don't respond to negative discussions - guess you know what you got don't you. I also rate most of the responses that are already there or at least the ones on the same page as my response. These just depend on the quality of the response.

Yeah,i do rate cos it helps to get the writer know his/her performerances.When you have already read the discussion,then you have the insight of the content,well written,educative and inspirational.Then,you can go ahead to rate the interesting discuccion that you have just read!

No, I don't rate the discussions I've responded to, unless it's really informative and has helped me a lot, but often times I forget to rate it. :/

I give positive ratings only when the answer is worth it. I think it's not right to give a rating to a one line answer. i don't give negative ratings.

Yes I do. At least read and rate all the responses up to mine. Then when I am checking to see what comment, if any, had been made I will read some more and rate them. The same holds true for all my posts....I comment on all the responses and comments on comments. +

I try hard to remember to rate the discussions I post to Peach, sometimes I forget, but like you I am constantly going back and revisiting my posts, so I generally play catch up then. I do make it a habit for sure to rate everyone that visits and responds to mine.

After I read a discussion I always give apositive rating. Even if I have nothing to add to the discussion. If someone responds to my discussions I will give them a positive rating as well. I have given out a few negatives because the response some one gave didn't even make up words.

I don't rate every discussion because I would be here all day. I have only a limited amount of time. I am very careful that I do not say something is good when it is not good, or something is bad when it is good. So usually in those cases, I do not rate them until there has been quite a number of responses and I can give a careful answer. Some I have not responded to as best response, because the discussion has not gone on far enough.

I always rate discussions where I make response. I think if the discussion is worth responding then it surely deserve a plus rating. I also rate responses in other's discussion if I really like the response. ANd ofcourse I do rate all of the responses I get in my discussions.

I always try to rate every post that I read. I was just like you & I forgot to rate the post. But now i am aware about rating & it is also a activities for performance evaluation from the administrator of Mylot. I wish soon you will be full aware about rating.
