Newsbiscuit today caused consternation amongst budding comedians and satirists when they announced that they were going to revamp the star rating system. A study has revealed that stars 1 (one), 2 (two) and 3 (three) are under utilised and never really applied.
A new rating system is going to be introduced over the weekend, simplified and more straightforward the 0 - 3 stars will be combined into a single rating button with the name 'Shit' and stars 4-5 will be combined into one voting button known as 'Toady'.
This will hopefully eradicate the current misleading system whereby everything is apparently just not worth voting for because its just simply shit or is smothered in Toady grovelling and gets a 4 or a 5 stars.
Originally the Newsbiscuit team were going to try and encourage an increase in mediocre and mundane submissions that floated between shit and toady, however the Daily Mail columnists said they were too busy and basically couldn't be arsed.
