Question When Someone Quotes You? Plus the Rating System?



Advertise Here

I read through some topics and tried to utilize the search function so as to not waste your time. But, I can't find this anywhere.

Is there a way to get a notification pop-up when someone quotes you in a topic? Is that even possible?

Also, I see stars by some topics. So, I know there is a rating system. How am I able to rate topics? There are quite a few topics all over the forum I wouldn't mind issuing a 5 star rating to.

If you are talking about a notification setting so it comes up while you are on the forum, no, that doesnt exist. You can get an email notification though, that is in the settings.

As for the rating system. At the top of the thread there is a drop down called, Rate Thread. That rates the threads 1 to 5. However, it doesnt really do anything. In fact there has been a running joke about the one star bandit. It seems that anytime there is a good thread going, someone comes along and rates it 1 star, no matter what the topic is.

Ok. Thanks on the first part. But, on the second. The rate thread thing. I don't see anywhere that I can rate a thread?

It got changed. The members can't see that anymore unless they are VIP.

I forgot all about that. I guess those that complained about the "one Star Bandit", won the battle. LMAO

Ok. I thought I was going nuts for a second, MT. I clicked on your link and didn't see any rate thread. lol

Well, I suppose I'm 0 for 2. But, thank you all for replying. It was more curiosity than necessity.

Oh. Well I'm not aiming to find that out anytime soon. But sounds like something needs fixing.

Meh. Personally, I've never paid attention to the rating, precisely because of the apparent abuses of the one star bandits. If the thread title looks interesting, I will take a peek. It doesn't take long to see where the thread is going and if it's worth pursuing.

I thought it was for VIP and up. hmm, I know it is not an important feature as it, and other features were abused by trolls. The purpose was to give merit to an excellent thread or those of importance to the Prepper community. Especially for the casual person that stops by or those that prep seriously but, don't have time to read the number of daily threads here.
