Default Why do people have to be so rude when rating?

I have noticed that people nowadays just can't be generous with their ratings for some reason. That occurs everywhere, from rating above user's [insert customizable thing here], to Costume Party levels, to Threads. Here are some examples:
Quote:
5/10
...
Quote:
1/10

Its cut off
Quote:
5/10

its ok
Quote:
1/10 ...
Quote:
6/10
I like yours
Quote:
6/10. nice.
Quote:
4/10 not very original.
Quote:
Okay 6/10.
Neo spam battle is rated one star.
OFFICIAL Mafia Host Signup Thread is rated 4 stars.
Mafia Game B21 is rated 3 stars.
How to submit worlds to Hamumu is rated 4 stars. Seriously?
Ninja Academy is rated 3 stars.
Training: Witch is rated 3.3 stars.

Could anybody explain why people rate so badly?

5/10 is average, so it's okay to rate 6/10 and say you like it.
6/10 isn't a bad rating, it's above average.
(EDIT: I disagree with your opinion of bad ratings on all those quotes except the ones rated with a 1/10)

As for the official how to do stuff type threads, I agree that they should all be rated 5/5
As for Ninja Academy... Maybe some people just don't like that kind of gameplay.

If you try to control the ratings, they become meaningless.

Thread ratings tend to be inaccurate because people very rarely rate them. And people are, I suppose, more likely to vote because they think a thread is bad, than if they think it's good. I don't pay any attention to what they're rated usually.

Official things shouldn't necessarily be rated top just because they are official. If someone doesn't like it, they're allowed not to. Training: Witch, for instance, isn't a very fun level. It does a good job at teaching you, but it's not a level you're going to go back to because you enjoyed it so much.

Neo Spam Battle was an accident. I was trying to vote 5 stars, but I accidentally voted it 1.

Sometimes, people just downrate CP levels because their level is very close to the top of the awesomeness list.

oh, and

That rating was obviously a spoof of the example ratings of this thread.

It may have been a spoof but it wasn't very nice. You rated someone 1/10 for no reason. They could have been rated by someone else and got a serious rating on it but you just went and wasted it.

Anyway, funny how this thread is rated 1 star right now....

The forum lies....it says that I have already rated this thread.

5/5

not 1/5




Edit....the forum seems to think that I have rated all threads that have been rated by others...and none that haven't been rated. So all ratings are based on one person's opinion?

Yeah, I accidentally rated Loony Land 1 star when I meant to rate it 4 stars

(Luckily Jamul reset it so I could rate again)

Yep, it's saying I've already rated this thread too... I think I'm going to disable thread rating now since they are 1-person ratings!
