How the Rating System works
What is this Rating good for?
There are many texts in the Assoziations-Blaster's database. Some are useful, some are ... well, not really useful. So maybe you do not want to read everything, but just the interesting texts. The Rating System was designed just for this purpose.
How does it work in general?
If you write some contributions to the Blaster's database, you are granted some rating-points. You can spend these points to increase or decrease the score of any text. A new text starts with 0 (zero) points. A good rating means positive numbers, a bad rating means negative numbers. So if you like just to read texts that don't have less than 2 points, adjust your treshold to »2«.
What happens to the texts that are rated as bad?
No text is deleted, but if it gets maybe a rating of -10000, it is not likely to be read by anybody with a reasonable treshold level. But if you want to read the crappiest crap, you still can: Simply set your treshold to (let's say) -10000.
How shall I spend my rating points?
You can't buy anything for rating points, so there is no use in saving them up. Spray them around. If you like or dislike a text, spend a point at once. Why or how you spend your points, whatever reasons drive you to do it; it's completely your choice.
