    Please leave any extra comments here...

    For example, does anyone think it adds a little too much clutter to the general page interface?

    Hmm I don't think it's a lotta clutter but I'm not absolutely sure I understand the use of it? I'm not being critical and I know what it is USED for... But is it something people will use? I don't personally see myself checking a rating, but just the thread topic or maybe views/posts to decide if I want to read it.

    honestly, if the topic sounds interesting I will read it, and if it doesn't  I may not, regardless of stars (well ok I read every post except the updates, but I won't forever 'cause I'm too busy and more members show up every day)

    You can put a hunerd-kazillion stars next to "NIS update ver 7.6.3.8..." and I ain't never gone be readin'  it haus.

    I quite like them.  I quite often find that boring titles hide interesting discussions.

    d@mnit checkout, ever since I installed Proximotron and adsheild, your avatar won't spin! That was one of your few redeeming qualities....

    It seems to only be going one of two ways,  either its 5 stars or its not rated.   Unless we (the users) take it  seriously and rate every thing we read its useless.

    lol, unfortunately no. The one image yes, but the sneaky "petit diable" used really big text for most of it. You will see, however, that he has reduced the size of the monsterous text to something less obtuse.

    Proxomitron freezes animations.  I'm sure it can be enabled.  I can even make my sig. much, much larger - just say the word.

    Yes there is an option to enable/disable animations.  In addition, a filter can be written to take out your signature.  ;)

    You cannot threaten me, EarthCannuck.  I know where your body is buried.

    These YaBB codes really are pathetic.

    Well the people of many countries have "nick-names". I don't believe Canada named themselves canucks.

    A Canuck is to Canada what an Auzzie is to Australia ect.
