We recently did something to our iTunes that allows us to give songs half-star ratings. Instead of just five options, we now have ten.

Here's how we used to do it.

***** — Properly amazing
**** — Really good
*** — It's not doing anybody any harm
** — No good but worth keeping in iTunes for future reference
*- Get this shit out of our iTunes at earliest con­veni­ence please cheers thx

That's a grading system which has worked well so far. We've got a smart playlist which selects 8GB of ***** songs and chucks them onto our iPhone, as well as another that selects 3GB of the most recently added ***-and-above songs and puts those on the iPhone too. Every few weeks we have a clearout of stuff with one star. That has been fine.

Now we can give things half a star it's all gone horribly wrong and everything's a mess, as you can see in the screen­grab above.

What should we do? What would you do? What do you do? Email us on [email protected] and let us know. THIS IS IMPORTANT AND NEEDS SORTING OUT BEFORE NEXT TUESDAY.

EDIT: Calm down! We made up a couple of the tracks in the screen­grab. We thought it would be funny. (And it was.)
