Whats up with haterz? Answered

Haterz. Stupid, stupid, haterz.

What is up with them? I mean, lets take a random example, a few days ago I posted the TR18 (with KILLERK's permission) and it rose up to 4.02* within a few days. Now I checked that a few hours ago, and it was still as 4.02*, and then about 10 mins later, it had gone straight down to 3.85* because some stupid hater gave it 0.5* for no reason whatsoever!

Anyway, I just decided that I would share that with you, thanks!

Time to get realistic?

If someone rates it "good" Its going to drop a lot.

Face it. Not all instructables can be the "best ever".

People whine when someone rates their 'ible anything but 5, and 5 means "best ever".

He is not whining about someone rating his ibles lower than 5, he is complaining because they are rating them the lowest possible.

Ocasionally that will happen, but I've been heckled for rating things 4.5 instead of 5. Just saying that most K'nexers here have unrealistic expectations for their ratings.

I think I'm lucky to get a 3. All of my ibles (slideshows) have around 3.2.
I think that's good, for me.

The only way ratings drop is if its lower than the current rating.  "Good" wouldn't bring an ible's rating down that far.  I agree with the rest of it.

I used to have like 4 ibles on the front page at one time. I think I had one of mine the highest rated at one time but it would constantly get attacked by people who didn't want it to be the highest. You learn to deal with it. People think they deserve 5.0 ratings constantly. I would not give any one K'nex gun a 5.0 because they've all had flaws so far. Even the TRs wouldn't.

No gun is flawless, and I doubt that yours is even as good as the TRs.

Agreed with IaC, and also, 'haters' is spelt with an 's', not a 'z'.  Doing that is not cool, you look like a muppet.

They hate you because you use a "z" at the end of the word "hater".

I think that sometimes (I'm not saying everyone, or anyone does this but) if they didn't make it, or it's something they would never make, it automatically sucks, stupid, and such.

It's a nice-looking and well put together piece. While least one person underrated at 0.5, some more will have overrated at 5.0. These things will settle down to more realistic values with time.
Within KNEX more people rate at one end of the scale or the other rather than at what they think it should be, so you will get some swinging until there are a lot of ratings.

Yes, for 20-odd ratings it's well-liked, but then it is good. Forget about those that tried in vain to spoil the score eh?

Its prob not haterz, but people who prevent you from gaining popularity, so that their projects will remain on the front page of the "Highest rated." category.

Screw ratings.  I have a cheat code for ratings, but its a bit time consuming... Yes, I've been gaming too much.  Yes, I'm joking.

I would not worry about it, if your project is worthy of a higher rating, most of the time it will correct itself out over time.
