Dear Members, Would someone please tell me what the guidelines are to rate members? Is there information with guidelines outlined? Just wondering... Thank you for information. Sandy B

There's no formal guidelines that I'm aware of, Sandy. Just rate a person as you see fit. One important thing to keep in mind is that, as far as I know, it is impossible to change your rating afterwards. \:D

A lot of people turn off the star rating feature entirely (that's why you can't rate everybody), and a lot of people don't rate other people. It's a topic of occasional controversy; if you search the forums for "stars" as the subject of the thread, you will probably find a couple of threads where people offer strongly held opinions about the star system.

For example, this thread here.

Dear Monica, Thank you so much for your response as I really did not know and could not find information. You are the person I most admire on our forumm, among many I do admire for their input. This is not a recent thought. To me you are the most helpful, your suggestions are always the best possible. Mostly I respect you for caring about us on the forum,etc. Thank You Again Monica, Sandy B

Thank you very much, Sandy, for your kind words. \:\) I personally would find the star ratings to be more useful if we were able to change our ratings. As it is I try now to wait until a member has been around for several months before rating him/her.

You have earned my words. I admire many others but you the most. I learn so much from you. One young man was so full of himself and not being realistic, etc. and I so admired your response to him...So kind and gentle . You really gained my respect. I looked at your profile and found you to have the education to back your wisdom too. Sandy
