Rating: Meaning 1 Attention worthy page, but there might be a better page elsewhere. 14 Nice page, probably best in some way. 29 Good page, unique in some way 49 Very good page, clearly the best page of its kind. 79 Great page, so good that even people not interested in the subject will like it. 99 Excellent page >99 More than excellent page
2006-07-08 [Delladreing]: As for the artistic rating *shrugs* my wiki pages contain graphics and photographs, and now fan art also. If I had recieved nothing for the Art, I would not have batted an eye lid. But I most certainly would not made a public display of myself in a wiki slandering someone else’s hard work.
2006-07-08 [Delladreing]: Apologies for the long postings to everyone else, but I felt it had to be said in light of the recent postings :)
2006-07-08 [Kyrinn]: If I may make a note here, I think the issue is that those wikis you suggested were YOUR wikis, [Lady Chaos], well, yours and a friends. I think it improper to come in to a place and tell them to rate YOUR wikis. If you came in with other ppl's wikis that you came across, then I can see us wanting to rate them. But you came in with wikis that were yours or a close friend of yours. I think that is at least part of the issue, and your artwork's quality has nothing to do with it. Just my views. So now, Ill let it be. ^_^
2006-07-08 [Lady Chaos]: I think most elftowners with a page of their own art would like to see it rated, it means more people will look at it... so why not ask? It's better than just not doing anything then getting all annoyed when no one bothers to rate it. Not everyone has a best bud on the ET Council who would think of being so kind as to rate their wikis. So I figured no harm in asking here. There are a lot of other wikis that I think are worthy of being rated, I just thought I would ask about the ones I could think of off the top of my head first. I could have always bugged a friend to recommend my pages here, just for the sake of looking better. But what a drag that would be.
2006-07-08 [Lady Chaos]: As for the wiki "Playgans", I don't have a problem with it... good for you... I was just using it as a reference point on the "artistic" scale.
2006-07-08 [Kyrinn]: Um, if you feel you have to, as you say, BUG someone to rate your page, that doesnt really make you look better. Plus not all wikis being rated are becuase ppl who own those pages are friends with ppl who are Council or Assembly. Some of them are being rated becuase somone on the council or assembly happen to be watching that page, and like it. Its not about who you know, this isnt a popularity contest.
2006-07-08 [Delladreing]: Well I'll say it bluntly, the way you were refering to it was rather...degra
2006-07-09 [Lady Chaos]: I'm sorry about that... I was just a little pissed off about it... perhaps I read too much into the description of "artistic" under "Classes of ratings"... either way, I have nothing against your page, it's good! Just the fact that it would be given an "artistic" rating whereas an art page wouldn't. Anyway, I made a list of suggestions to improve the wiki ratings. (Don't worry, they're not a rant). suggestions for wiki-ratings
2006-07-09 [Sunrose]: *sigh* No, the wiki was NOT denied by me, because it was [Lady Chaos]' own wiki!!! I already cleared that up before, don't bring that issue back please [Kyrinn]. I denied it because I thought it wasn't good enough, I don't care who it belongs to. Thus, you can mention any wiki for rating, as long as you realise it may be denied and that it doesn't grant you the right to throw a tantrum in this wiki. // The term 'artistic' does NOT solely refer to images, it refers to any type of media that can be considered artistic! That includes poetry and stories, images aren't more or less artistic.
2006-07-09 [Sunrose]: Which means that a wiki containing images doesn't have more right to artistic rating than any other wiki with a different type of artistic media. // You imply that this rating-system is subject to popularity. I can't deny that knowing crew might make it easier on getting rated, however we do our best to keep things as fair as possible. A lot of wiki's get rated simply because, as [Kyrinn] said, crew already hangs out there. For good reasons, as it simply is a good wiki. The feature only just started, you can't expect us to have rated all of the best wikis you have in mind within such short time.
2006-07-09 [Sunrose]: In the mean time, a general warning aimed at no specific member: Don't message crew-members until you get your wiki rated. It will be considered spam and will have negative consequences for you. You can suggest your wiki here, it will be taken into the Councilforum and you will get an answer. You'll have to accept the answer for what it is.
2006-07-09 [idyllicday]: where do we post the wikis we'd like to have rated?
2006-07-09 [Calico Tiger]: Go ahead and post them here :)
2006-08-12 [iippo]: Wiki has to be exported before it can be rated.
2006-08-12 [Iron-Man-429]: oh ok Sure Ill get that done. Ill post when I have it done.
2006-08-12 [Iron-Man-429]: ok it should all be exported now
2006-11-23 [The Broken Hearted Poet]: How do I get my wiki rated?
