but I must say, after looking at alot of the cakes within the last couple of days, new and old I dont see any that deserve a zero in my opinion.

I think it would be nice if for the star rating we at least get rid of the zero star rating. I personally want people to suggest how I could have done my cake so that I can learn on to do things differently. I know that I don't get my cakes smooth as I want, but because of all the advice on this site from all people I am working on making it better.
Sometimes when someone asks for help the person who has done that particular task may not be on to give the advice, but another person may have seen it somewhere else so they give the advice. I think that if you have not done it but know where you read it you should state that in your post. I try to do this alot. I am really good at finding things for other people and will say I saw this here or I will post the answer as a quote or I will point the person to the area where I read it. I always want to help people, and think good communication is key. I personally want advice from all kinds of people, even if they haven't tried it. Does not mean I will use it but I will still take the advice to heart....ok now that I have rambled on enough and meant in no way to hurt or offend anyone, I am just stating my opinion which is everyone is entitled to icon_cool.gif

Hello,

My opinion is to take out the star rating but to keep the option of being able to comment on someone's cake. This way any responses will be serious and not just some loser clicking zero.

Thanks for this site.

I don't rate them and don't feel a need for it. We aren't here for that kinda thing, everyone here works at their own skill level and pace, I personally have no formal training but love to do this. My hubby makes it possible for me to do this for a living...I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do. I would NEVER want to feel like I discouraged anyone!

Well we dont have to worry about the ratings anymore anyway, they are gone... But when the contest starts you can rate the cakes there.

I've only posted a few cakes, and had one rating. I'm a Newbie for sure, so I don't expect much. I don't feel qualified to rate other people's cakes so I don't. The range of work shown is very wide. The pros are posting fantastic pix that seem like they all deserve 5 stars - but a more professional eye can see 'flaws' that I can't see.

I don't see a need for the ratings - they are fun to watch but so uneven that they are not meaningful.

BUT if you're going to take away the ratings I think you should also remove the "top-rated" option for viewing.

Newbie
