What's the point of rating articles? Today, the "featured" article has nary a rating to its name until I put one in. How could this be? Or was it just me? --Sakai4eva 03:03, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

I like rating because I think it's a good way to express how good an article is. If the article has 1 star, I'll skim it, because I'm here for funny. I also like expressing my opinion on articles. --HELPME 03:10, February 1, 2010 (UTC)Sir ¬_¬ | Banter HOMOPHOBE!!! CUN Icons-flag-us NOTM
I love ratings too... but sometimes people just read and forget/ignore to rate.... sorry, kinda ranting over here... --Sakai4eva 03:25, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
I was under the impression that it is to approval as folly is to a castle. --WHATTHEWORLDISWAITINGFOR.PNG "SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL" 04:23, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
I give this thread a 1 out of 5 btw. Needs more pictures and a more affirmed skeletal layout. --WHATTHEWORLDISWAITINGFOR.PNG "SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL" 04:24, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Well, not fishing for complements here... just wondering why there aren't more ratings? --Sakai4eva 04:30, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
It's like on YouTube. Chris Martin has apparently tortured entire continents of innocent people, given that the Coldplay song "Vida la Viva" has raked in millions of hits. But the number of ratings it's received (from people presumably more deafer than I) is in it's thousandfold or some such. But anyway, I never saw any relevance in the "rate this" option myself. --WHATTHEWORLDISWAITINGFOR.PNG "SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL" 04:36, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
^I love that song, actually. Anyway, Nobody cares much about the rating system anyway. --HELPME 04:40, February 1, 2010 (UTC)Sir ¬_¬ | Banter HOMOPHOBE!!! CUN Icons-flag-us NOTM
That you love that song shows that our ratings, if accurate, are useless to you, as your taste is shit. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 04:56, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
As I watcheth the fall of this rant... it paineth my testicles... to view such desecration... but I do agree, Coldplay kinda sucks. --Sakai4eva 05:26, February 1, 2010 (UTC), I actually don't think the ratings are useless. I was saying most people do. And besides, I don't know why I love that song, I hate most Coldplay music. --HELPME 05:49, February 1, 2010 (UTC)Sir ¬_¬ | Banter HOMOPHOBE!!! CUN Icons-flag-us NOTM
So you speak for "most people" now? And you "love that song" but "hate most Coldplay music". It sounds to me like you are, to mix a metaphor, trying to put your cart before the horse and eat it too. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 05:55, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Well, sometimes I do see the ratings to see if it's good, but sometimes, I don't get the jokes (I know, it's my problem...) so I refrain from voting. Nonetheless, it is a good indicator of the quality of the article at least. But the fatter of the mact is that today's featured article does not have a single rating vote until I gave it one! What gives? --Sakai4eva 06:08, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
The system hinges on you. You're Sisyphus, and the star rating system is the stone that you have to push up the hill of Uncyclopedia. Alternately, you're Prometheus and the rating system is Zeus' Aetos Kaukasios, sent each day to peck on the Uncyclopedia of your liver. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 06:20, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm... I hate manual labour, and I'm not to fond of BDSM... any other choices? Metaphorically speaking, of course. --Sakai4eva 06:26, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

If anything, Sakai4eva is Hercules. This one time, I heard him say he could go the distance, which proves my point. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 22:06, Feb 1
Incorrect. Sakai4eve's going the distance. He is also, as you've clearly forgotten, going for speed. This, I think we can fairly conclude, makes him Cake. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:22, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I can't refute that. Is he delicious cake (and, consequently, must we eat him?) - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 00:39, Feb 2
If I must be eaten, I demand that I be given 2 weeks notice. Then I can cheese myself up and abstain from chocolate and berries. I like cheesecake, therefore if I am to be cannibalized, I'd prefer to be done in a fashion that will make a great conversation starter in heaven or hell. --Sakai4eva 00:51, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

what's the point of raping?

...SATISFACTION. --S0.S0S.0S.0S0 06:51, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

This is sound logic. —Paizuri MUN (Talk Contribs Poll!) 06:59, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
GRAMMAR NAZI MODE: it's "rape", not "raping" unless you have a subject... but I think that satisfaction is relatively easy to achieve, unless your band gathers no moss --Sakai4eva 07:03, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

What's the point of NACHLADER'S NEW SIGNATURE THAT MADE MY SPLEEN BURST INTO FLAMES? ~Jewriken.GIF 14:14, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Eh? ~Jewriken.GIF 14:14, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

Isn't this the bit where an admin is supposed to confirm my fears over the length and thickness of my sig and demand that it's shaven as not to put the rest of userdom to shame, and not go posting about it like you gotta talk about the idiot dude that cut you off on the way to work on your eternally unvisited blog? --WHATTHEWORLDISWAITINGFOR.PNG "SHE'LL CARRY ON THROUGH IT ALL" 14:22, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
You had me at "isn't". ~Jewriken.GIF 14:29, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
You had me at "you". *Swoon* Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:02, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
At least my sig hasn't caused a river of yellow shit to overflow on the text on this page. --Whattheworldis~~.PNG"MORDILLO IS FUCKING FASCIST" 21:15, February 1, 2010 (UTC)

We'd be more likely to take your words to heart if you weren't just a date/time group. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 23:23, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Whoops! Got too excited with the tilde --Sakai4eva 23:32, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Pah! Now you're a date/time group and a name. Somehow, that's worse. Sir Modusoperandi Boinc! 16:09, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

What's the point of ranting?

Really, what's the point? It always makes me so mad when people rant on the internet. I mean, it serves no purpose and generally just causes people to be slightly sadder as the day goes along. Rants suck.--<<Bradmonogram.png>> 14:34, February 2, 2010 (UTC)

To quote a noble prize winner, "We Need Change." --Sakai4eva 14:46, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
I completely agree with Bradaphraser; ranting is completely pointless and stupid acts that serve only to perpetrate the author's personal agenda and nothing more. It is my personal belief that anyone who rants should be rounded up and shot where they stand, because ya know what? This is a free country goddammit, and I have a right to tell you to shut the fuck up. Those are my feelings on people who rant. —Paizuri MUN (Talk Contribs Poll!) 15:33, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
