I'M NOT A MEANY!

missashlee was just kind enough to inform me that I'm listed as a Bomber in my profile. I was hoping to clear this up! Months and months ago, when I was new to the site, I attempted to report what I felt was a factual error in two separate quizzes. I apparently did something wrong and marked something that trashed the quiz. These are the only two quizzes I've ever commented on!

I'm not so bad! I've not betrayed The Family! Please give me another chance! I want to live!

How can this be possible, when you've taken over 1600 quizzes and your average rating is 1.0 Are you rating them at ALL???

Who knows how it works? Maybe he got labeled as a bomber and then he COULDN'T rate any more quizzes?

Not sure if I understand your q. As I said, I only ever commented on two quizzes, right after becoming a member. And I was referring to the aforementioned factual errors, not rating the quiz. Obviously I misunderstood something at the time.

That's exactly what I'm asking - how is this possible?

Okay, so you only commented on two, but are you rating the other 1600+? Are you clicking on the dropdown and choosing a rating number and submitting it?

By, "comment" I guess I mean "rate." I only rated two. Miss ashlee just told me about scrolling errors she made when she first started that resulted in her unknowingly trashing quizzes. Sounds likely my error as well.

I can see how it might have happened. When I first became a member and took some quizzes, I would rate the quiz using the scroll menu for rating. I used the mouse cursor on the scroll bar of that menu and then highlighted the numerical rating.

Then I blithely went on and used my mouse wheel to scroll to the end of the page to hit the submit button. It took a few quizzes before I noticed that the wheel changed the rating to a "1" before it actually scrolled down the page, because it was all happening so fast! I discovered it early, but had to write a few apologies before it was over.

I always use my wheel to scroll on web pages, so it takes a conscious effort to NOT do it on the quiz rating page.

Probably all you have to do is take some quizzes and rate them above a 2 to get your average up.

What Siouxie says makes sense. If you only actually rated a couple of quizzes and your average is over 2-3 and NOT 1600+, the take some more and rate them to get your average to reflect your actual experience.

Good idea!

I see your average rating is up to 5, so whatever you are doing now seems to be working.
