systems... I realized that it was.  Here is what I have planned:

: 9.0 - 9.9 = Exceptional

: 7.0 - 8.9 = Good

: 5.0 - 6.9 = Mediocre

: 3.0 - 4.9 = Tolerable

: 0.0 - 2.9 = Horrible

Whilst I applaud the avoidance of the contentious word "average", I'm not entirely certain that the application of mediocre, with it's negative connotations, is entirely constructive. Whilst this stems from my view that a 5.0 score should come from a wholly average (read - mediocre) experience, I feel that rating scores above this as average limits the scoring system - the narrower the range of scores for good d-mods, the less meaningful the scores become. It seems to me that this scoring system would pin the nature of bad d-mods down precisely, but be fairly innaccurate when it comes to the best.

But then, I'm not a fan of the percentile system anyway. Otherwise, it seems fine.
