I realise that this is a stupid thing to post about because I'm guessing that hooboy has spent a ton of time working this out. But my comment is wouldn't you think recommended would be a higher ranking than satisfactory? or is it just me?

just a comment.

"Satisfactory" does seem sort of bloodless for our highest rating. In bureaucratese, a mark of satisfactory is usually the lowest possible favorable comment. I like the "excellent", "very good" etc. system. It reminds me of the San Francisco Public School report card grades used in the prehistoric era.

I wondered about this too ...

 

If you look at the actual order in which the various options appear when you go to the "submit a review" page, you will see that it is:

 

Recommended

Satisfactory

Unsatisfactory

Not Recommended

 

So I think that HooBoy does intend for "recommended" to be a higher rating than "satisfactory" although he didn't list them in that order in his posting about the new rating system.

There was so much grousing that everyone was getting an outstanding rating, I figured delete it and let the prose/text be the rating.

 

It was that or good / bad

 

Because that was all most people were doing anyway. Call it what you want: Outstanding, satisfactory, thumbs up....the point was made and I took it.

 

Now, I'm getting dissed for it. Go figure...

I think there is something about 'pleasing some of the people none of the time... or none of the people all of the time...' or something like that.

Just keep you head down an keep moving forward.

you're not getting dissed, I was just misinformed, based on your posting in the news section, I thought satisfactory was the top ranking, and I thought that was odd. Sorry for the confusion.

hooboy you know I luvs ya.

Matt, I agree with you completly. And, HooBoy, believe me there is no intent to dis or complain. I was going to write just to say I didn't understand. When "outstanding" is getting changed over time to "satisfactory" it seems that satisfactory is the highest new rating. If the order really is Recommended, Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory, Not Recommended, it becomes more understandable again. You might want to consider changing the old Outstanding rating to Recommended instead of Satisfactory.

 

I agree with HooBoy too, that the text has a lot more value than the actual rating. The lowest rating, based on objective facts, is noteworthy. Anything higher is in the eye of the beholder. Both cases need the text to clarify.

Ah! Such imagery -- Matt you have a way with words. Who says a picture takes a thousand words...

I'm also a little confused about the difference between "unsatisfactory" and "not recommended". (And this is not to naysay HooBoy either!) One possible interpretation is "I didn't enjoy the time I spent with this 'scort; but other people might" vs. "I don't see how anybody could have a good time with this guy - stay away".

 

There's another question that I've had pangs of conscience over which is "would you hire again?"

If somebody says no to that question, that's a really really big red flag to me.

 

However (and almost contradictorily) my situation is, of the 20-30 guys I've bribed to spend time with over my "carreer", I've only engaged 3 of them more than once.

 

One of them was somebody exactly in Christian Bataille's situation - an aspiring vocalist; I saw him about once a month for a year and a half. The other two were just once extra. But the two reasons for that are I hire for diversity's sake and I also want to prevent myself from spending huge amounts of $$.

 

So, there is a guy I recently spent time with, (who was reviewed here 4x already, all positively), with whom I had a great time, and in real life will I hire him again? Probably not.... but if I read the question as "If you had it to do all over again, knowing the way it would turn out, would I have done it in the first place?" the answer would be "Most definitely - in a heartbeat!"

May I humbly suggest that we scrap the whole system based on verbs and adjectives and, instead, award an escort either one, two, three or four erect penises, stars being taken already by reviewers of restaurants and movies. Although it goes without saying, obviously, the more erect penises, the more fun you had. This way everyone (the giver, the taker, the candlestick maker) could use their imagination and give their very own adjective or verb to each set of stars. Why, you could even add an adverb before said adjective or verb. The mind thrills at the possibilities. With this system, we wouldn't get bogged down in the nuances of the English language.

 

Later.

 

PS. If we wanted to get real fancy, why, we could even have the penises gradually become more flaccid as their numbers decreased. One is the loneliest penis that I ever heard.

Actually, this idea is (partially) taken, too.

See the site ratings at Hunkhunter's Haunts.

 

How 'bout NO ratings or symbols at all? Just straight narrative within a prescribed word-limit. You read (and 'interpret') it all, then rate it for yourself.

Who took your dick idea seriously?

 

The only thing serious in my post was paragraph three. So, seriously, what about what's suggested there?
