Same films missing that tag today as when I first looked at them on the start date.
    If a film does not have a "Discuss" link it is because they did not have a thread (or I couldn't find it) at the time I set up their entry's info in the database. If you had logged in earlier in the viewing period you would have noticed more than the 3 missing links, but as they notified me of the correct URL I updated their entry information which causes the link to show up.

    The only reason I ask is most of these movies, when you hover over the rating there are only 4 or 5 votes? Is not one voting yet?
    I think you got your answer from Blaine, but wanted to follow up to make sure it was clear for anyone else who may be wondering anything similar.

    The star rating in the threads here on dvxuser are an unused feature of the forum itself. Some people rate the threads, but they are mostly ignored. It is not a function of rating in the fest.

    Instead if you meet the criteria (have 50+ posts here, or have entered a film in the fest) then when you log in to the viewing page (http://www.dvxfest.com/lossfest) you will see an additional column to the right of the film listing that displays 10 stars. You select the number of stars that equals the rating you wish to assign that entry.

    And a reminder for everyone ... this is an individual film rating, not an overal ranking system. If you give one film a 6 star rating, you don't assign the next films based on whether it was better or worse than the 6 star one. Instead each is assigned a value from 1 - 10 based on how you feel that individual entry falls on a rating of 1 to 10, where 1 means this is the worst film possible, they couldn't have done anything more to make it worse; and 10 is the best film possible, they couldn't have done anything more to make it better.

    Also, assigning a 10 to one film and 1 to all the other films in an effort to make your own, or your favorite, film rise in the standings is pointless. First, because we have designed the system such that unless you get several hundred people to do the exact same thing for all the entries you will have no impact in moving a film. This is because the rating gives an overall average, so if you give it a 10 but everyone else rates it around 4 - 6, then it will fall around 5 because that is the true average rating that represents the majority view of the film.

    Second, doing that would be pointless because we review each and every rating that comes in and we reserve the right to disqualify someone's ratings if they are clearly trying to cheat the system.
