Lightbulb Rating functinality suggestion

Aside from the minimum and maximum numeric value allow people to add a text value associated with each value. EX:

"Interest" Minimum 0 and Maximum 4

0 no interest
1 possible interest
2 some interest
3 definite interest
4 great interest

or just

0 no interest
4 great interest

Let people see the words instead of the numbers so it has more meaning.

Also a question. Since I can do ratings with custom fields whats the real difference that the ratings module offers?

Hi there.

You could easily (easier at least) accomplish what you are asking with custom fields. The key difference between the rating system and custom fields is that ratings are more tuned for averaging values
