Cheers System
I too like the cheers only system. Too often jeers appear to be used as retribution or as a personal attack against an opponent(s). The cheers only system would seem to provide a more positive feedback.

Perhaps a member rating system that simply divides number of cheers received in a 90 day period by the number of posts in that same period. This would result in a rating similar to slugging percentage in baseball. For example, if you make 100 posts and receive 50 cheers, you would have a member rating of .500 which would mean you receive an average of 1/2 a cheer for every post. Or maybe multiply the rating by 100 so the displayed rating would be 50.

Whoever calls me ignorant shares my own opinion. Sorrowfully and tacitly I recognize my ignorance, when I consider how much I lack of what my mind in its craving for knowledge is sighing for. But until the end of the present exile has come and terminated this our imperfection by which "we know in part," I console myself with the consideration that this belongs to our common nature. - Francesco Petrarca

"Nothing is easier than to persuade people who want to be persuaded and already believe." - another Petrarca gem.

Re: Message Ratings Now Working
So how are member ratings calculated now? What does the rating actually mean?

Ignorance is a most formidable opponent rivaled only by arrogance; but when the two join forces, one is all but invincible.
