It would be easier to ban Jimmy.

if so, how is that a gift?
if it was 1-10 before and now its 0-10, its only fair to allow an 11


I thought 0 was an option, but there's been a change of management.

I understand what you are saying, but, IMO, this would just make this group seem even more unapproachable than it already does

The Bluestreak reign, when the RG becomes an exclusive club. :shock:

if 0 was always an option I take back my objection
but, 0's from people who refuse to read the book - that can't be considered fair play, can it?

Really? Because I'm sick to shit of non-members who do nothing but bitch about the group regarding some review group thread they read and didn't like 8 months ago voting in the polls.

Those people can approach the edge of a cliff for all I care.

Who here has said they would refuse to read it? Has anyone ever actually reviewed a book without reading it?

Nah, I think people should read the book to have the right to complain or score lower. Similarly, I think they should review books and be a member to vote in our polls to select books. We don't let non-members select books individually, why should they have a vote in what is merely a collective selection??

How is it exclusive? If someone wants to join, they submit a review! For the purpose of the poll, I suppose if someone states their intent to review, that would be good enough for me.

And as for the zero, it has not been an option except for special occasions. I deem that this Holiday Season is one. In the rule of fair play, I'll allow the use of elevens too, for this one week only.

because one of the goals of a poll is to get new members.

Oh fuck it.

Score however you want. If it's an integer, it's fair play.

Also including votes of those who vow to review also, obv, even though teases like bkthompson make such promises and never do.

Because you are excluding their vote before they have reviewed.
