Thank you, What exactly does "rating" mean as a required for posting a review? What is the exact object of the rating activity?
January 28, 2011
The rating ranges from -5 to +5 and represents your opinion on a topic. It lets readers know how you feel about the topic in addition to your written review. So for example, you rated the topic of Food a -3, implying you don't like food. If this isn't what you meant you can change your rating at any time. You might also find this description of What Make a Great Review helpful. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!
