Default Thread Ratings

Who actually does this? What makes you pick a particular number of stars?

I see a lot of the threads have "ratings" next to them. I've never even considered rating a thread (let alone how to do so!), but apparently some of you on here do! What makes your decision when allocating stars? Not going to lie, they seem pretty arbitrary to me (i.e. the "5 star" threads aren't always more interesting than the "2 star" threads).

I've accidentally clicked the rating and given a rating. I always just assume it's an accident.

Must not be able to rank them on tapatalk, or I just don't know how.... Tapatalk is seriously cool but has drawbacks, can't see polls, signatures Etc.... But prior to it I rarely posted anymore, now it's far easier

I rated this thread one star. Mainly to see what would happen

I only rate if it's a funny drama thread. . . then I give it five stars.

I really just don't understand the purpose of ratings. Is it supposed to be "Read this awesome thread, looks at its 5-star Reviews!"? Or "This thread has 1 star, it sucks, don't read it!"?
