Advantages Teaches humility
Disadvantages The feeling of despair is hard to avoid
This challenge can be found on thingywhatsit's homepage. This one seems a bit different. At the end of this op, I have given reasons why.
(By the way I have run out of all my A-Z’s and C was the only one option left.)
Here are my views on the questions1. Someone in your cot has written the best review they have ever written. You can see that they have made an exceptional effort. Do you.
A: Give it an exceptional to show them you can see how hard they worked ?B: Give them a rating based on content and layout
C: Give them the same rating as everyone else did . After all the majority rules.
2. You read a review which you see has loads of exceptional ratings and you really cannot see why because it’s not that special. Do you
B: Rate it what you think it deserves regardless of popular thought.C. Don’t rate it at all because you don’t want to cause controversy ?
A: Gives the writer more points ?B. Gives the writer a chance of sharing the Premium Fund (i.e. money put by to reward the best reviews of the month ?
C. Makes the writer a happy little bunny ?C & a little of B
4. How many exceptional ratings are you allowed a day ?
B. FiveC. Ten
This seems reasonable, I do have alerts, but not all my alerts can benefit from the exceptional ratings. I have read many that I felt were worthy of receiving this type of rating. In all fairness the majority of reviews I have read were worthy of such ratings. If I felt personally that I have benefited, and it so happens to be the next five reviews, then I would give ratings. I try not to show favoritism to the selected few.
A: Rate it exceptional and tell her how brave she/he is.B. Rate it Very helpful and tell her how brave she/he is.
C. Tell her that it’s a brave attempt but lets face it, her grammar is appalling and it needs to be spell checked.
A: Something that makes the writer really popular ?
6. What is your definition of exceptional ?
B: Something that stands out on merits of its content, writing style, and completeness.C: Something that another member wrote that you could not.
The merits, its style, its honesty do deserve the exceptional credit, but it is difficult to be able to rate it as exceptional, especially if your options have run out.
7. Your best friend on Ciao writes a review. It is pretty good but not outstanding although you want to make a statement to encourage her. Do you
B: Decide that your rating is how you find it, and rate according to the Ciao guidelines.C: Press very helpful because you can’t be bothered to leave a comment
I do not have best friends here on ciao, all are my friends and all will receive the same treatment from me. I have fondness for some, but that does not influence my decision on whether his review is good but not outstanding. If I felt that it did not meet up to Ciao guidelines, I would honestly commend them for making the effort. There are right times and wrong times. It may well be that the writer may be depressed. I then try not to add further to it. What that person needs is encouragement; true friends would be honest and adjust to the person’s thinking
A: Press exceptional and leave a “Good op” comment.B: Save it to favourites and go back when you do have time to give a really helpful comment ?
D. Press very helpful. It’s easier.
A: Say thanks a lot and give them one.
9. Someone rates your review Exceptional and you know it isn’t. It wasn’t one of your good days and it really does not stand out from the crowd. Do you ?
B: write a message in their personal guestbook and say you are not sure you deserve the rating and think they must have made a mistake.C: laugh about it and take the exceptional. After all raters have bad days too. What does it matter if you got an exceptional instead of a really exceptional review.
That is a difficult one, as there are many issues related to it. First, when I write, I write to the best of my ability. I respect and am encouraged by the person who has given me an ‘E.' To that person, he or she felt it was good, then this is fair enough for me.
A: Show your most useful review to be a really naff one that you didn’t put that much effort into ?B: Give you the result you expected ?
C: Can’t be bothered to look ?
Thank you Rachel for thinking up such an interesting and thought-provoking challenge. I enjoyed doing it, as it has been quite a long time since I have written. It did encourage me to renew my zeal for writing.Certifiable ?
