instead of of + or -, should it be numbers like 0 to 4??

what you guys think about this. Instead of rating a person response with a plus or minus, you think there should be a rating scale like 0 to four. Each numbers represents like 1 means bad, 2 fair, 3 excellent. something to that nature. sometimes when i rate somebody post it hard sometime. some are not pluses but at the same time they are not negatives. you think this will be a good idea.

the reason it cant be a 0-4 or the like is because what the rating system is for is not really to rate it in the way your thinking.. its basically only to rate +this was of value to the conversation -this was of no value to the conversation !this needs to be seen by a moderator (there you specify why) too many people rate negatively if they dont agree with someones response or its a short response.. thats why ratings go down so often for people.. i only use negative once in a great while like if someone writes like "i dont know what you mean" or "i dont know".. everyone else gets a positive no matter what their views, as long as they express them.. exclamation to me is only for people abusing the system (notorious cut n pasters) and people that are offensive or excessively crude..

To me that sounds like a good idea the better quality post the higher the number.. and all those that just pust one or two words..that would get a lower number.. And i agree that not all posts are +'s or -'s there should be an in between.
