I started to wonder one thing that might be worth asking here.

When somebody send you a message telling you that they added and rated you, what does this mean for you and how do you return a favor?

Does it mean rating their profile and adding them to friend list or do you also add their journal and rate portfolio?

If someone sends me a message expressing they rated, favored and added me it puts me on guard right off the bat as they tend to be shallow people that just care about their score and appearances more than who they really are. Most do so to obligate a person to do likewise that wants to fit in. Kind of how stream bonus or coven forum posting lasts for 48 hours I also treat my adds, favors and rates in a state of flux pending how they act. If a person likes you as a friend then you will see them often interacting with you as they will put time and effort into the relationship more than an easy click of a button then hardly ever hearing from them again.

To be honest I don't think people really read the profiles or the journal's . I always know because of the questions they ask me !

I rate, add, favour journal and portfolio and honour the person. I also message the person, so that they may do the same.

It means that I gain new friendships and I am able to move up the ranks of the Vampire Rave website.

It also helps the person to level up as well.

I know there are bonuses and penalties for the size of your friend's list, but I will rate anyone a 10 because it's just so cool to see each person's personality on their profile. I don't like adding people unless I've gotten to know them a bit.

Is the polite thing to do. As being a member of a vampire's society, Like VR, is your duty to make all new people welcome.

In brutal honesty, "adding", rating, etcetera... it doesn't mean much to me (but then, I am an a**hole, so take that as you will), but I do agree with markus666 most of all, in this one.

Given that I've already spent too much time in the past among the so-called "vampire community", and even amongst them, got stabbed in the back, I don't socialize with anyone enough to care about how I stand with any certain "community".
Granted, I wouldn't mind getting to the point of "sire", here. But I have much better things to be concerned about than being of a high level on social networking. I fill my time with music, study, and expanding my knowledge for a reason.

When someone sends me a message they added and rated to me, it means they are working on leveling that profile and have no intention of trying to be a friend of mine. Then again when I was leveling my profile all I did was rate them. The only time I asked if I could friend them was, I had spoken to the person and liked the conversation.

Rating makes 0 sense on here, cause most profiles have no pictures or any personal info. Not really sure what are the ratings based on. Giving everyone a 10 on everything just for the sake of leveling is pointless, and defeats the main purpose of rating.
So if someone messages me that they rated me, I'd say "thanks" and try to initiate the conversation. If they don't reply, just delete the convo and move on.

The meaning behind it for me comes off like treating this site like a game of some sort and that is not why I'm here.
If someone wants to add me, or I add them, generally I prefer some sort of interaction first.
When it doesn't happen that way, I simply add them back in return as a form of courtesy.
