I know but it gets annoying at times. I don't mind the star ratings but I hate when people do stuff like 1/2 or 3/4. It should be * ** *** **** *****, I think that is more simple. When you add 1/2 or 3/4, you are nitpicking.

But then there's the whole thing of putting two matches both in the **** category, but one might be a lot better than the other so it's unfair to stick them together in terms of quality. Giving something ****3/4 suggests that it was amazing but not on the level of some of the 5* matches, those being what you would consider the greatest matches you've seen.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

wrt no 1/4, 1/2, 3/4. if there were none of those there would simply be more stars to choose from. instead of being a 5* system it would be rating from 1-10 or 1-20 or 1-100. makes little difference.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I appreciate star ratings, especially in reviews. Just from my perspective, it helps me know when to keep something in mind to watch in the future. Sure, I'll watch stuff that doesn't get good reviews if it features guys that I like, but I don't have enough time to watch every match so I try and watch stuff that's generally considered around **** or better. If someone just says a match is "good", well that's not giving me very much context.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

I haven't used star ratings in like over two years but if I went back to them I would have use 1/8s myself. WAYYYYYY too many matches are (e.g.) better than ****1/2 but not ****3/4 for me to keep just to 1/4s.

Re: Your 5 Star Match Lists

If I were to use star ratings I would likely not use 1/4th stars, rating something 1/20 seems excessive to me.

I still get goosebumps watching what I think are the very best matches. 12/3/93 and 6/9/95 tags, Jumbo/Misawa from June and September '90, along with the 6mans that preceded each match, 6/3/94, Jumbo/Tenryu from '89, Taue/Misawa on 4/15/95, and lots more.
