We PM'ed and had a nice dialog. That's not the way it's supposed to work?? Why not?? I thought the goal was to provide quality information via peer review. If not that totally changes the way I'll interpret articles from now on.


Go back and change your vote to an 8, and look at the affect it has on his score. Then change it to a 10.

That will clear things up for you....or it should.

I think most of you are overcomplicating things. I either like a page or a photo, or I don't. If I like it, it gets 10, that is, I add my vote to the quality of the subject. If I don't care for it, I obstain from voting. Simple. In final analysis we either like the subject or we don't. Grades of likes and dislikes seem to be totally meaningless, at least to me. BTW I suspect I'm not the only one who does it that way.

I vote this way on photos and trip reports. If I'm not blown away, I don't vote. If I do vote its because it knocks my socks off and I give it a 10. Someone mentioned the voting system works simply as a 'like' button.

Route pages and articles I treat differently. If I read a route page from a route that I've climbed and feel there is room for improvement I'll give it less than a 10 and PM the author with feedback. Peer review is important - I've planned entire trips to unfamiliar peaks based largely on the information here on SP. Perhaps the comments should be used for peer review.

Uhmm, I don't think you have been reading the posts, we are voting just as you are. But having the option of voting an 8 or 9 where the vote still adds to the score as opposed to depleting is not an option. Those pages that need just a little more content deserve a positive score, maybe not a 10 but an 8 or a 9 and that should be adding not subtracting from the overall page score.
