How to … Rate a Topic
We encourage all members to rate topics.
Click the stars at the top of the topic, if they're there. Rate threads you think are a waste of space with 1 star. Rate topics, blog posts, etc. that you think are great with 5 stars. Rate everything else accordingly.
If there are no stars at the top of the topic, the topic or blog post (or gallery image, etc.) cannot be rated.
There is no step 3. This is really very simple.
So instead, we'll tell you about the colors…
- Grey stars means nobody's rated the topic. If you rate it, your rating will be yellow.
- Yellow stars mean you're the only person to have rated the topic.
- Red stars are the current rating. If you rated the topic, red means at least one other person has also rated the topic.
Note: You can re-rate an item at any point. Just hover your mouse over the stars (or tap the # you'd like to vote for on touch-screen devices) and your new rating will be applied.
