Weird Mare, we were both writing at the same time and said nearly the same thing...

Yeah, and it would be hard to ban people for abusing the stars when you can't know for sure the motive behind their rating.  If readers were going to get banned just for rating a story one star out of five, there'd be no point for having the star ratings at all.  They could give a story one star because they're jealous or don't like the author, or they could give a story one star because they legitimately think it sucks (and maybe it legitimately does).  

There are stories on AC that, if asked to honestly rate them, I'd give one star.  But I don't review stories that are that bad; as Thumper's mom would say, "If you can't say something nice, don't say nothin' at all."  I remember the stars being there, but I don't remember really even using them; I didn't review much back then because I didn't actually read much on AC back then.  All the stories I followed were on other sites.

I do remember the drama, though, when people were getting flamed and unfairly rated down for no legitimate reason, and we don't need that crap happening again.  We're better off without them.

Yeah so the bad thing about sharing computers and keeping your account as always logged in (yorkie) is that if dumb people like me dont check we get on and say stuff as someone else and make other people look dumb!


so I, TESSA will now correct myself.... I MIGHT MAKE AN ACCOUNT THEN. I THOUGHT ONLY WRITERS MADE ACCOUNTS!

Ugh, I know! It only takes a minute if even to sign up. The other thing that was happening was people were actually using fake screen names and reviewing their own stuff just to get their review counts up. Who does that? LMAO I mean what purpose does it serve to review your own stuff if you know you are the one that did it? People are weird!

Seriously???

No, because you have to have an account in order to review, make a list of favourites, track stories, etc. That is what most people use their accounts for.

Also, it's kind of odd that you guys would pass a computer back and forth and log in and out each time to reply to each other lol

LOL why are you guys taking turns logging out and in?  I'm picturing you pushing each other out of the way to get in front of the computer - "Ooh, I have something to add to that!  Lemme on!  *logs the other one out*  Just post under the same name.  Unless you're worried everyone will think you're both the same person or something...

I signed up for an account a few times, but somehow it always gets deleted. Do the accounts get deleted if they're inactive for a period of time?
