What happened to ratings? The old ratings system was confusing and underused, therefore we have tried to simplify it as much as possible. We have replaced to 1-5 star system with simply one Star. You can read more about this here. Have more questions? Submit a request Comments Cailleach 17 December 2014 20:14 Great idea! xb 17 December 2014 21:13 Has each rating been converted to a star? Good idea. monkey 18 December 2014 17:13 1-5 stars gave the opportunity to show how much you liked a post , with the added option of favouriting it . 58NorthPhoto 18 December 2014 17:20 I have to say I only ever gave five stars (or none!), so this makes sense for me. monkey 18 December 2014 17:27 i however gave what i felt appropriate to each post 58NorthPhoto 18 December 2014 17:33 Im just trying not to moan at all the changes and give an example of what's a good change for me. I'm not saying it's right for everyone, because change never will be! Riko 18 December 2014 19:12 Can everybody give a heart now? RichardDonkin 20 December 2014 00:46 Makes so much sense. JanetH 20 December 2014 10:02 Old 5* ratings seem to have been converted to one though? JackyMT 20 December 2014 16:32 preferred myself to give 1 to 5 according to the content. Lucc 20 December 2014 16:52 It might have been underused but there was nothing confusing about it sylviacebula 20 December 2014 23:53 I would like to know if the option to turn stars off is going to be restored? NovaLovesFrogs 27 December 2014 03:49 I love the new one star system. But recently, about three days ago, I noticed that I was getting notifications for stars being given to my entries, but when I went to reply to comments, I noticed that either my entry had no stars or that the more recently given stars weren't showing up. Considering the fact that I can't un-give a star (I tested it just to see if that might be the case) I don't think others are able to remove the stars they give as well. Unless it's a members option? Just thought I'd bring this to your attention. Arachne 28 December 2014 16:54 I'm happy to see this simplified. It never bothered me but there were too many people upset if their stars weren't a multiple of 5 and especially if they happened to see them incremented by 1. Vodkaman 30 December 2014 22:06 This makes sense. It was always a strange thing; receiving less than 5 stars was mildly irritating, yet receiving nothing was no bother at all. I see Arachne mentions this in the post above. hobbs 02 January 2015 04:56 Actually this was a good idea. Almost everybody gave 5 stars before. Giving less than five stars came to be "damning with faint praise". Well done.
