    Hey Chris ...

    Because you don't have 50 posts yet. Have the mods open that for you.

    If you have a script uploaded, they let you vote. This keeps vote dumpers out!

    Try it again Chris, it should work now. Let me know if you have any additional problems.

    Is it the Rate this Thread section you use, or should I be able to see a different rating somewhere? I have over 50 posts!

    I see stars! It works now. You should see stars in the far right column next to the name/link to read the screenplay.

    I don't have those in view, even though I have over 50 posts. Could you sort that for me please Mods?

    I see no stars either. I know I have less than 50 posts, but I PMed Isaac and he said that shouldn't be a problem. Anyone know why I can't rate?

    DarkElastic and themightyshrub - I've corrected your accounts, you should be able to vote now.

    Cheers!

    By the way - I seem to be able to vote on my own script. This doesn't seem very fair to me, I'm not going to vote on my script because I'm obviously biased, but there might be some other people who are just going to give their own script ten stars. Is there some process whereby votes placed on your own script are void?

    It is up to you whether you rate your own entry or not. Remember these are individual entry ratings, not rankings, not votes. This means that the final result is based on the average rating each entry receives.

    We don't just tally the stars and call it a day, we get the average vote based on total ratings and number of votes placed for that one entry, regardless of what the others received. We then rank based on this average rating.

    This has been thoroughly examined, explored, and tested prior to implementation and subsequently through several fests now and it works extremely well.

    First, it is not affected by ballot stuffers. If you rate your entry a 10 and every one else a 1 it doesn't push you up and them down because it's based on an average and assuming every one else will rate realistically on those entries the average will reflect what the majority rated. The only way to significantly alter the outcome is to get a large population of people to also rate one entry a 10 and the rest a 1. But we store each individual rating and I examine every one, so if that happened it would be extremely obvious and they would get thrown out.
