    While we did leave the individual ratings alone we did change the "scoring" of them.

    Before, the Dislike, Disagree and Boring all cause negative score. Then we changed it that only one of those caused negative rating and the other two were neutral.

    This past weekend we got some complaints again so all ratings, while negative or neutral, will be scored as Ratings Received and not scored as before. So, while some may dislike your post the result will be that your "score" will increase as Ratings Received.

    It is still a rule that a person should only give ratings if they are actively posting themselves and rival fans should not use negative or neutral ratings at all.

    Members should not get overly offended at Dislike, Disagree or Boring ratings because a rating does show that your post got someone's attention and your rating went up.
