Rating and Stuff
Here are a few things that I feel I should enlighten you on.
My Rating System
Before I begin please remember this:
A valid rating is between 1 and 10 with 1 being the lowest score and 10 being the highest. How you choose to rate a profile is totally up to you. Different members will have different criteria for profile rating.
With that being said, here are a few things I base my rating on.
I don't have set standards that I always go by. My mood influences my rate most of the time. There are some other factors that will ALWAYS affect what I will rate you though.
The first one is simple. Have you recently changed your name simply to gain status? If so, you will most likely get a 1. That right was being abused and you do not deserve a high rate for abusing the status system.
Is your profile one of the top rated on the site? If so, then you better have a fan-fucking-tastic profile. Your profile better shit out babies and make me want to give you an arm. Because if it doesn't, I'm going to be critical and I'm going to rate you harshly.
Do you have images that belong to an artist that sells licenses and are not using the art correctly? This means if I don't see a clear copyright sign © and a license number done properly, you will get an instant 1.
I will also report you to the artist and licensing company they are through for improper use of images. Same goes if you are using an artist that doesn't allow usage of images and I'm aware of them. I'm a very copyright compliant person and I will not tolerate that being shit on.
Do you have a fuckton of popups? I'll take one number off what I was going to rate you for each one that you have past the first one I see. One is ok if it's telling you about autostarting music or such. More then that is fucking pointless.
Any other questions, you could probably message me and find out why I rated you what I did. I may reply, I may not. If I don't, then the answer is already here. :D
Feel free to rate me however the hell you wish. I don't care. Just please understand this. I won't ask you to rerate me, nor will I return with an automatic 10 if that is what you give me. I will view and rate your profile the way I would normally not based on what you give me.
I turned it off for a reason. DO NOT send me one of those homemade ones. I don't want a picture to start a conversation, I like words. Try and say hi instead. It might get you farther.
If you bite me with a homemade bite, you will find yourself blocked.
If you add me to your friends list expecting me to do the same to boost your score then you are horribly mistaken. I am not here for the numbers.
I only add friends to my friends list. Not random people I don't give two shits about.
No, I won't add your journal to my favorite list. Unless I actually read your journal often chances are it won't make the list.
I utilize that list when I am away from the site for a few days so I can catch up faster.
If you want to add me go ahead, I can't stop you. I prefer people that actually read my journal to add it since that makes logical sense. But...I doubt that will happen.
I normally don't care if people stamp me, but there are a few things I do ask. If there are drug references, overly violent images, or your stamp is bigger than 600px wide please don't stamp me.
If you stamp me with something that fucks up my profile layout, you will be blocked. End of story. Learn to resize your damn stamps >:(
