Default The VARIETY Poll




I think it is about time for this . It seems most of the forum has heard it already, and for those who did not, well they can just weigh in when they do.

What? 4 different options for "I like it" and only 1 for "I don't like it?"

I was using what WMP gives you as the star ratings. "It's ok" does not really mean that you like it, but that you just find it passing. There is a middle in "I like it", and two above liking it and two below liking it. It's even

Yeah, and the next one is "I won't play it again" that's a pretty harsh cut.

Well, it's two extremes. You can also "Love it!" which is just as extreme, except on the other side of the spectrum. Plus, if it's so harsh, why didn't you just choose that it was "ok"?

Becaus it's not "ok" for me. I'll probably won't play it again, but that still doesn't solve the problem that there is not a single option between "it's ok" (which is still more positive than neutral) and the absolut negative extreme.
Most people WILL chose "It's ok" so in the end, if they only have these two choices, and so we will have almost no negative response in this poll. But I think that's "ok" with you.

Well, in a way you are right, but I always thought of when someone said music was just "ok" that it was the equivalent of a "meh" which i guess would sounds more negative to some, but I get the same sentiments from both. Even if you think there will be almost no negative response, I for one, will not include the "ok"'s if I ever bring up how many people liked Variety, because it does not mean that they like it, just that they think it's passable.

Anyway, blame Microsoft!! It's their system!!

Well yeah.... I wouldn't say it's ok, because I dislike it. But it's not like I'll never play it again... so I guess I'll vote that it's ok..

I voted "I like it" but I wish I could take that back, I'm more in the "I really like it!" category.
Hell, I'm restraining myself not to listen to it too much so I won't get sick of it cause I overplayed it. I'm liking the tracks more and more at each listen (except maybe Metro and Mirrorball)...

I"ll probably play some songs again, but 'It's okay' is too positive a review
