    Ok i notice the one star gremlin has been at my thread again :rolleyes:

    Now i genuinely couldn't give a stuff about the fact that someone has one starred it BUT i am being told that members have tried to increase the rating on it again like the last thread and they aren't able to :confused:. This seems really odd so can Admin or a Mod look into it and let me know whats going on.

    Thanks :)

    Not sure how this star thingy works :confused:

    How do some have stars and others dont or is it just if members decide to rate it.?? I see lots of real good threads without any stars??

    Must admit hand up I didn't know how to until I just looked as this has been bought up :(

    again!

    and again it cant be changed?

    sounds a bit odd to me to have happened twice! Defo time for the mods to investigate.

    Is that back again? I never notice and why give them the satisfaction of acknowledging it

    It's happened on this thread now :(

    I understand if someone is being petty and rating threads 1 star - but I don't understand why it tells me I've already rated the threads when I haven't.
    There must be a fault somewhere. :confused:

    Because once it's done, no one else can rate the thread, there is something wrong with the forum

    So who starts the rating off??

    Does the OP have to start something to get it going or does it get rated from other posters when they feel it apt?

    The OP can't rate their own thread - if you see a thread you like you can rate it 5 stars. However if you don't like it you can rate it less, anything down to 1. - You do this by clicking on the stars at the top of the thread.
    You can only rate a thread once but a thread can be rated by all the members on the forum.
    The rating can change if it rated 1 star other members can rate it 5 and it will bring the rating up and visa versa
    The majority of members only rate 5 stars for good threads and ignore the bad.
    However there seems to be a problem with Rainybows threads.
