    If you were a rookie you wouldn't be able to start a thread.

    Other posters can vote on the quality of you thread by selecting from a pulldown menu.

    And a bit of friendly advice, this particular forum's just for discussion of Rockets games and trades. If you have questions like this in the future you should probably try one of the other forums. For instance, it's only a matter of time before this thread gets moved.

    Technically, I vote based on the quality of the original post even if I don't agree with it. However, if the thread gets derailed by some scumbags then I might change the ranking (but I hardly ever do that unless the OP is involved). So basically, I vote based on whether it was a worthy thread to start based on the original post.

    Unfortunately, people vote on whether they agree on the statement or some other silly things. For example, R2K post videos but since the Rockets lost to the Pacers people gave him one star. Another example, someone posted about Rafer being traded to the Magic...I gave it five stars because someone posted that info here for us to see when we wondering who got traded. Most people didn't agree with the thread and gave it one star. Therefore, the stars do not mean much.

    In summary, a well thought out post even if you don't agree with it should be five stars. It foments discussion which is what this board is all about.

    I rarely vote in thread ratings. Only sometimes. They aren't useful to me because some people spam and rate threads "one-star" because they disagree, even though the person has a well-though first post.

    Poor thought process, logic, maturity, etc in the original post: 1 or 2 stars.
    ex. (following a bad game) Yao sucks! We need to trade this loser!

    Thread goes way off course with posters calling each other names rather than debating: 1 or 2 stars.

    If you read the original and/or subsequent posts and are impressed by the intelligence and insightfullness ("I never though about that!), give it a 4 or 5 star.

    If it's just an average run of the mill thread: 3 star.
