It's time to vote on the main ratings scale. For simplicity's sake, we're using the same scale for talent and ratings unless someone (Mak?) objects. It's how every vote turns out anyway and it will just make voting easier.
Let me say this one more time and then I'll shut up and deal with whatever scale is chosen:
The 1-10 scale has no midpoint. On that scale there is no such thing as an average player. A rating of 5 is subpar but a rating of 6 is better than average. In terms of evaluating talent it just doesn't make sense to me as a semi-mathematician. 2-8 does have a midpoint, and while it may seem like an odd scale, it is chosen because the midpoint is 5. On a 2-8 scale, a player who is rated a 5 is truly average.
Of course, there's also a 1-5 scale, which I use in the 1927 league, where a 3 rating is average.
Either way, 1-5 or 2-8 is what *I* would urge people to vote.
And if you vote one or the other, I'll give you underwear and food like Michael Moore!
