What's the deal with ratings?

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Bosch on Thu Aug 22, 2013 6:18 am

My question is basically the topic.

You know at the top of the page you have announcements, Top rated and Newest RP sections I was wondering what Top Rated refers to. Is it a discontinued feature or something?

I believe at one point an RP could be reviewed and rated out of ten. It was like that when I first came here but seemed to stop being a thing at some point without me really noticing so I cannot say exactly how long we've not had it.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me Vit.

Got ya. I accidentally clicked on an RP that must have been from that Era and the site was asking me to rate it. I backed away slowly like a pro.

Thanks for the explanation.

The ratings were put in at the conception of the RP tab, so most of the ones rated were from several years ago, thus incredibly outdated.

(Honestly it needs a wipe - or monthly wipes - since the top-rated ones are all dead and have been for a very long time).

I'm pretty much new to the world of roleplay. I've very little experience, but It's something I'd very much like to get into. Problem is, I can't seem to get started. I've no idea where to begin, or how to begin.
