Which rating system will you be more likely to USE on OpEdNEws


We've been using a rating system we designed over the past two months, but frankly, the number of members actually using it has been disappointingly low.

Here's an example of a rating system from another site. What do you think of it? Would you use this kind of rating system more or the one we've a lready built? If we go with this kind, we will use some of the concepts, which are already the same as we're using, and some that are new here. And we'll change all the logos.

Here's the new idea:

Choose up to 3

We can play with the terms, but it will be a lot faster and easier to use check boxes to select the ones people think apply.

Here's the system we already have, which uses five levels of ranking for each category

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big) to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
