    So a troll has "drama queened" a bunch of my posts. I decided to check their history and discovered posts which equally could get the label. My feedback is to ask whether this is actually a worthwhile status vote on a thread? Surely it just encourages trolling and I'm not sure "queen" is very politically correct?

    PS. Kudos to the first person who marks this as drama queen ;)

    You can't separate the queen from "Drama Queen" - it's idiomatic, not literal. And it's a neutral rating, not a negative one. Yeah, it sucks to get them, but only a little bit, just for a second.

    I wouldn't worry about it.

    Drama Queens received: 5, Drama Queens given: 5.

    If you don't agree with it why do you feel the need to "sink to their level".

    I quote that because you disagree with the rating overall it seems.

    I sank to the level in order to make the point which lead me to this thread. I don't mind if no-one agrees, just sharing my feedback (an activity which I trust you encourage :) )

    I'm not sure I agree it's a "neutral" rating - but then it's subjective. What useful purpose would it have as a rating - I'd see it as provocative, which might be the idea I guess :)

    Probably doesn't give much benefit, but at the same time who cares? Someone from the internet you've never met clicked a button.

    I think if you look at people's profiles, 90% of them will have been awarded a Drama Queen rating at some point. I have 7 :D I don't like odd numbers, I need three more. Time to throw a tantrum!

    All feedback is welcomed I'm sure :), was just curious. I've found quite a few posts which deserve the drama queen rating. Heck even I've made a few drama-queen worthy posts :)

    I just added to Morgana after her request :)

    This feedback wasn't a major gripe, just curious to know the reasoning behind it and the bit about queen was a genuine question.

    It all depends on the atmosphere you want - I mean it is a little trolly lol :D

    And Morganna thanks you ;)


    Somtimes it isn't, though. A few of the ones I've got are from friends and are meant as a joke.

    Shelley is the creator of most of the post rating icons we use - I say we blame her! :D

    I posted in a thread a week or so ago that someone had used the drama queen rating on me as a means of giving me the middle finger. And then dude proceeded to give me yet another drama queen rating for that particular post. My suggestion to you Seawind would be to not give that drama queen rating the power to upset you. As the old saying goes = let the drama queen rating be water off a ducks back.

    ^^ Yeah - Kinda like that ^^

    Welcome to TAZ btw ;)

    There's not always a negative reason behind why something gets done.

    And not to put too fine a point on it, you're no angel yourself :p

    Oh! This is a wee bit off topic. But you know what would be sweetness??

    If the Post Ratings modification compiled a comprehensive list of say the last 100 ratings received & given. For instance - the numbers in the screencap above become clickable links that opens the comprehensive list, which would be a list of the actual posts that were liked and the user who honored you with the rating. That'd be a nice functionality addition to Post Ratings imo. This way - you can see who the hell hates you and/or your posts. LMAO
