    Facebook "Like" is binary. 1 = like, 0 = don't like. How is -1, 0, 1, 5-star, 0-10, or 0-100 any better, other than that they increase the scale of the (still linear) rating system? Linear rating is linear rating, no matter the scale...

    Just because you don't "like" it (the 0), doesn't mean you "dislike" it though. Thats where your -1 comes in.

It has not been active since Feb. 27. Why do you feel the need to post on old threads?
    Sorry, i didn't see the date. Again sorry.

    Actually, you've revived it and there have been some interesting points made: incremental adding and subtracting of statistics for one. I had never thought of that. Plus, it gave me the push I needed to finally create a graphic I've been wanting to make for some time now, so "Thanks!"

    Well just cause you "dislike" it doesn't mean you "completely dislike" it... that's where a 0-10 scale would be even more accurate... but again, "like" serves its purpose as a binary indicator of suggested vs. not suggested. "Haven't seen it" isn't a state... it's one explanation why you might not have suggested something...

    Nope. My system has no dislike. Like or nothing. -1 = ABS(-1) = 1 = You like me! Yay! We all get merit badges in the USA lol.

    It only allows 0|1? Okay, I'll pick the |. That's a brick wall, so I can ignore you when you talk.
