Yes, OK - so it isn't a 5 - agreed - it's not a 5 - right. (respectSmile)Errr... so what is it then?


Usually then thing just below a 5... Called a "4".

Hehe, don't feel bad - Just caught in a moment of weakness

4.5 is the whole sort of problem...

As in
I'd love to have that as an option

But
With it, I'd end up giving too many albums 4.5

As alot of people have said earlier, if you can't decide on a 5 or a 4, don't give it a 5.

When you can't decide between 4 and 5, give it a 3.

LOL  No kidding!

Rico and I seem to have this "feud," that anything I love he hates and vice versa.  I told him yesterday then that he will loathe The Hazards of Love.

I of course write it off as his terrible taste, but what are you gonna do?  TongueLOL

When I research an album to see how it has been rated, I look at the number of ratings. If it is a five and only has two or three ratings that's one thing. But if it's a five and has twenty or more ratings then I know it's worth looking into.

When I rate albums in my own collection I rate each song with whole numbers. When I've rated every song I total the score and divide by the number of songs which leaves me with a fraction (4.3, 4.7, etc.) as an overall rating for the album.
This is for my personal collection. On a site this big with so many albums having been rated I think the decimal system would be going too far.

I'm not sure how against this I am so I'll give it 1/2 a nope. Big smile

No I think if you don't think it can be improved on it's 5.  Any less than that would be ......ummm..Ermm....4 maybe.
Help me I'm falling!

Okay, I give up. Dead

I don;t know how many times myself and all those in favor of this must remind you folks, but we are not asking for a damned decimal system! Jesus! We're simply asking for a half star option between stars 4 and 5, how difficult is that to grasp?

I'm not saying it's worth it, but at least base your arguments in some reality, here. You're talking about why we shouldn't have a decimal system? Fine, but the topic starter said nothing of the kind.
