Default BD Draft rating with 1-3 or 1-5?

To contribute to the ongoing movie rating discussion in the Horror Draft thread in a constructive way, I 've decided to do a poll.
Additionally to that, a discussion in this thread should substantiate each opinion for/against 0-3 or 0-5.

Let's go!

Poll is in.
As I said earlier, I am for the wider and more meticulous rating with 0-5. Why? Simply, it allows you to classify better the movie, thus the outcome or the result is more precise than the rating with the more clumsier 0-3. It benefits to the end result in a better way. Plus, you have a clear conscience after the rating.

Why do we need a thread for this? It says in the first post in the discussion thread you can use whatever method you want when you vote.

That went under my radar, sry. I have assumed, that the rating system 0-3 is/was embedded in concrete.
Though it is still interesting to hear, which system is preferred by the participants. At least I am interested in.

Can I finally try my new rating system that uses planets instead of numbers?

Example:

John Carpenter's Halloween = Jupiter
Rob Zombie's Halloween = Pluto

I think there should be a fixed rating system. It worked fine before and there was no need to disregard it. I will be voting 1 - 3 anyway, so that's what I voted for.

Lets keep it simple and just keep it at the 1-3 scale.

Don't want to give too much leeway.
