OK, the MOOSE works for me. And as an added benefit of being on this site, I have the pleasure of announcing that everyone here has been awarded the coveted MMR designation by the NMRA. Yes, the National Monkey Railroad Assn.'s award...the Monkey Model Railroader. And in the future, I will try to be more tolerant of opinions that aren't mine. (Like hell I will!)
Now, whar's them Meece???

Woodie, I can't speak for everyone (or really anyone besides myself) but I too don't care for the star ratings.  Also, out of the hundreds (or is it thousands?) of members, there's only a couple hundred that are active.  It could very well be that the people using the star rating system never comment or contribute anyways.  In other words, the star rating doesn't matter in the least!  Now that being said, I won't demand getting rid of the stars, because just as herb said, it would be a pain in the butt to remove.  The last thing I'd want to see is people wasting their time to remove something that really doesn't matter anyway.

So perhaps the solution is to just ignore it as long as the star system doesn't create any more problems.

I treat it as advertising: crap to be ignored. Jose.

Wow, I JUST joined these forums and this is the first post I read because your first message when you join says 'go read the few things in General'.

I think I will like it here and the persons running the show!

But since I am new I am going to cautiously give one moose!  :bg:

:moose:

I think this forum needs Monkey avatars now, no?

FWIW, I have and do run a few forum softwares and if I can help with admin stuff to ditch the stars I am willing to take a look.  I know you all do not know me from Adam yet, but the offer is open.  Let me know.

Helmut

Sorry, but is it just me or is it still there? In other words: I still see them.

I already deleted the Freerails cookies, thought maybe somethings were "remembered" by my computer but that didn't help.

Alwin, you should be on the staff I think. What theme do you use for viewing the forum? I think that may be the issue.
Thanks again for your help.
Ken
