It has now come into my notice. in most of the interest ratings i am down compared to what it was before. till morning in Mylot i was 65. now its 81. In Love i was 4 now at 6. In relationship i was 879 now its 880 i guess. Have you any idea how these ratings work? Does that mean some is rating me negative in those. You can't say I am not active there. I am very much there.

I think it goes by not only how active you are, but how active everyone in a particular interest is. If someone becomes more active than you in a particular timeframe, then you will be bumped down in the ratings because you have to make room for those more active than you.

I agree with you on this one. I think if someone is more active or getting better ratings then you will move down a little and they will move up.

subha, I have been trying to figure out how that interest rating works. I am now under the impression that it is not about how much your posts are in that particular interest - but the percentage of all your posts that fall under that interest. so say you have 100 total discussions made - and you place all those 100 discussions in the category "Life" well, 100% of your discussions are in that category - this gives you a "1" rating there. even though you only have 100 posts and others may have 2000 posts in that very category...and they will fall below you in the rating. at least this is what I am thinking, but who knows - it all is truly a mystery.

I'm sorry to hear that. I hope your rating goes back up soon. I'm not really sure how it all works here either. Mine goes up and down alot also. You are very active here so members must not be giving you enough positive ratings to keep your rating number up there or something. I'm really not sure. I rate you positively though.

no, it depends on how many people have answered in that category, it really is a stupid feature.

Hello dear subha. I have not exactly noticed the interest ratings. Now since I am reading this discussion of yours and I happen to see another response of yours and find that your interest ratings is, "subha12 (5757) ranked 6 out of 6,396 in love". I am not very clear about this, but I guess that maybe it means the lower the number is, the better? Still a little bit confused. hehe. Thanks.
