I noticed that there is a "rate member" feature on the new BBS, which is pretty cool. Yet, we all seem to be five-star members. Don't get me wrong; it's great that we all rhink of eachother with respect, but how will we ever know what a five-star rating REALLY feels like unless there is someone with a one-star rating, a proverbial hallmark of troll posting and flame wars? Every triumph needs a tribulation; how can we ever know true bliss if it's all we ever experience?

I would like to be such a sacrifical lamb. Thus, I implore each member (new and old) to give me a one-star rating ASAP, lest we all lapse into that warm, utopian glow that a five-star rating gives.

Please; for the sake of the board.

Brendan

Person or persons unknown only gave Steve Cohen, a piano dealer who posts on the other board, FOUR stars.

Who was being cute? How does this ratings stuff work, anyway? :p

Ah, but that's because you excluded ratings in your profile, my friend.

Probably worried about all the Liszt fans ganging up on you.

OK, so now I know who got member number 3, I wonder who got number 2?

Liszt "fans" ganging up? Hahahahaha, more like Liszt fan. Wait, there's Diarmuid, so that makes two of us.

I hope that upon the posting of this reply my rating will have gone down by at least two starts - don't disappoint me!

Ha! I tried to rate you Alex, but I thought you turned the rating thing off ON PURPOSE. It is a dumb thing - like how many carnations you got in high school on Valentine's Day (Jodi - 0) frown I have given everyone who has posted more than once 5 stars. I think. :rolleyes: Sorry if I missed anyone. Who is number 2, anyway?! I'm waiting for my senior membership. Hrmmph. :p #11 (Jodi)

I was quite surprised to see the 5 stars under my personal rating. I rate myself 1 star. Definitely NOT more than that!

Too late Brendan! As a fellow Liszt affictionado I gave you 5 stars days ago! Actually I've only given 5 stars to anyone so far (tried to give Alex 5 as well but he's turned off his rating bar, how discrete!).

Brendan and Jodi

Brendan, I gave you ten stars. Sorry, I can't lie.

Jodi, if you erase the left most "1" from your member number - well, I guess that means your number 1 (which you are).

Regards to both of you.

Wow, that is too cool. I am definitely starting to get the hang of this new format -- I like it.

Plus this is just a post so that I can increase my number so that I'm not a "junior" member forever.

So I take it no one is going to give me one star...makes me sad.

And now it's a race to see who gets to Senior Member status first!!! Will it be Jodi, with her bright, cheery, helpful posts that make her the Mary Pickford of the Forum, or will it be Cork, The Barbarian, with his caustic humor utterly devoid of soul?

Tune in next week; same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!

Well, Brendan, you COULD post on both Forums yourself . . .


Or you could take the mature attitude that this is not a "race" and that you aren't "competing". That your posts, though fewer, are more pithy. That true quality does not rely upon quantity. (Loser)

I've actually been lurking there around the time I started posting at the Pianist Corner, but the topics never really interest me because I don't know jack about piano brands/specs and it seems to me that newbies there are greeted with ridicule (or used to be...haven't checked their board in a while). There were also more than a few times when I wanted to tell that Leuhrmann guy off, but it wasn't my argument and I got more pleasure just reading the flames...

It's almost like we're a seperate entity altogether, with a few go-between-fence-riders like yourself, Cork! laugh

Very funny Burma Shave postings, wghornsby smile smile smile

Whoa! Each one counted as number 14!!! Can this software be THAT smart???? confused confused confused

As much as I got such a thrill from getting those stars -- it brought back the feeling of my first gold star in 1st grade, and wanting MORE -- I think they are aren't too prudent. I don't like the potential it offers for giving people 2 or three stars. Who was the wise guy who gave Steve Cohen 4 stars? Feh!

Everyone here is a STAR as far as I'm concerned.

Ah, but Brendan; you probably know about as much about pianos as I do about playing them, and that doesn't stop me from posting here!!!

The Forum's much nicer these days, I think, to newcomers. We only had a bad spell there for about eight months, and then the more obnoxious offenders left. Keep in mind that "in the beginning, there was the Forum", and many of us started there and stuck around because of the good people who post on it. Come on in, the water's fine.

Ok. Maybe this is just because my little musical brain does not extend to the realms of such things as computers, but i am quite confused by this whole new forum thing. ok, not only this rating stars thing, but what is the deal with these smiley faces? and the thumbs pointing up and down? are we rating movies? maybe i should stick to chopin. I think he is easier to undertand! Oh yeah, and what the crap is a UBB code???

Brendan,

You've had me thinking about the rating system ever since your original post. I've decided that I really don't care for it, so I've turned mine off.

See how influential you are?

You know what, you're right. I'm turning mine off too. It could be a bit of a vehicle for trolls and malcontents to get at people anonymously (some awful person must have given Steve Cohen a 1 or something to make his weighted average 4 frown ). That was awfully unfair.

You guys crack me up! I have one calling me Cornelius cool and another quoting from old movies! I'll miss you when I leave on vacation soon! (Jodi, that means you'll reach Senior Member first!!! Which is as it should be, don't you think? Beauty and intelligence before age and sarcasm, and all that . . . or that's what Kelly would say!)

Well, my Board Meeting begins tomorrow night, with our Annual Meeting the next day, so I'll try to remember and act upon that advice.

After I'm fired, I'll give you a call!

I see that many of us have become bra-burners already and have cast off the ratings!

You may be fired, Cork, but just look at it as "early retirement." Then, you'll have plenty of time to go inside yourself and become a philisophical barbarian.

There is also the other option of "walking the earth," a la Kung Fu: the Legend Continues.

Grand Caymen sounds fantastic but I'm a working man now!!! I've just landed a part time job at guess where Cork? Bluthners in Berkley Square!!!! (the fact that I've got a job at all will make my parents faint!).

Can you believe it! I went to Gloustershire with Neil and Jill, where they were playing a concert for Heir Bluthner (the main man!). Anyway I ended up getting sloshed on champagne with some guy who turned out to be the MD for the British end and he offered me a job!! At first I wasn't going to take it (I thought it would take up too much of my time) but a couple of friends gave me a mental kick up the butt and told me to. Had the official interview last week and got it!

It should be great fun, and you have my word of honour that I won't become all stupidly pro any brand smile Or anti any brand wink

Just couldn't keep it to myself any longer smile

Diarmuid.

Wow, a ton of stuff happens when I disappear for a while. So, we are all "no stars" these days. Plus, I have this feeling that I'm never gonna get out of junior member status.

So, Stars Be Gone.

Remember, I was the original Stars Be Gone!!

Diarmuid,

That's fantastic! What an outstanding place to work; I love that store. The Bluthner is a big favorite of mine; just got a chance to play a couple new ones at Kahns here in Dallas a couple weekends back, including a 9'. They are wonderful instruments.

I'm delighted you accepted the position -- you'll do well there and have some fun at the same time. Congrats!

I suppose you could say that Brendan was the Marx or Engels of the movement, that Alex was the Lenin, and I'm just the Stalin . . .

. . . which is appropriate, since right now I'm stallin' getting back to work!

Well, I suppose you commies all made your marks here.

shocked

Congratulations on your new position, Diarmuid. Sounds wonderful. Oh, I wonder if you'll get a business card with a piano on it. Or the fallboard emblem. Zowie.

Diarmuid - If you DO get a neat-o business card with the Bluthner name on it, would you be willing to send me one?! Congrats on your part time job - what a JOY (as opposed to a JODI ;)) to be around those fabulous pianos all the time! You must definitely send me (or Cork) a photo of you at work so we can post it in the forum photo album!! Jodi

So are you saying that you rule this forum with an iron fist and will make any of your suspected enemies "accidentally" slip in the shower?

Hi Jodi!

Absolutely, on both fronts smile And yeah, frankly I don't see myself getting ANY work done in that environment, I'll be too busy playing all the pianos laugh

It's a job from heaven.

Who, me? Nah, I'm just a simple peasant. But if I were Lenin, I'd be real worried . . .
