| | [Guide] Rating Threads
What are those stars you see everywhere on the thread listings? This Guide will tell you all about those stars! About the stars: The rating stars represent the rating of the thread. = Excellent = Good = Average = Bad = Terrible
So what is the rating? The rating is the average vote cast from the members whom voted on that thread. The rating helps you in a situation such as this: If you are on a very busy forum (eg. Open Mike, Housez), the rating helps you quickly choose which threads are worth reading. Is it required to rate threads? No, of course not. But if you think that a certain thread is absolutely fantastic, you might give it a 5 star rating. If you think that a certain thread is just absolutely not worth looking at, you might give it a 1 star rating. Can I rate threads? Of course, everyone can rate threads! How do I rate threads? Here is how you rate threads! First, find the thread you want to rate. Next, look on the very top of the thread and find the arrow where it says rating: Click on the white down arrow:: This should pop up after you click the down arrow:: Vote by clicking on the circle next to the rating you want to give this thread. This should pop up: Click OK. If you get this message, that means you have already voted on that thread. You may only vote once on each thread: I voted, but it doesn't show my rating on the thread listing! What's wrong? Nothing is wrong. Once enough votes are cast, the average rating for all the votes cast will be shown on the thread listings. One vote is not enough for the stars to appear. Have any more questions? Just ask!
