A forum owner unfairly rated me in postloop. How can i increase my rating?
September 18, 2012 2:39am CST
Well my rating is down to 3.13 because the forum owner told me that i posted all "off topic posts". He also revoked my subscription. I just subscribed to the forum and his rule was that there would be no "off topic posts". I thought that obviously, your reply should be related to the topic right? Now that he gave me a 1 rating, it is clear that he meant that you should not post in that section. So he should be more specific and say that "no posts in the off topic SECTION" than just saying, "no off topic posts" right? Anyway now that i'm starting to enjoy posting here, i can't cash out or get points coz of my below average rating. So what can i do to increase my rating? Is it ok to post in the postloop portal again to receive a positive rating? Because i noticed that the admins of forums don't require to give us ratings right? So i don't know how long i'm gonna receive one again.

You just have to wait for another rating which will hopefully increase your score. In the FAQ's on Postloop it stated that if you believe that you have been misstated there is noting that you can do, and you have to wait for a new raring. The staff of Postloop should give the possibility to create a dispute or something, and if you are right the bad rating should be revoked. But the guys in there care only about their profit in my opinion and they don't really care about the members problems. If you are a forum owner then you mirth have some rights, as a poster your hands are tied. I have seen some very nasty replies of the staff when members were asking for help, and since the forum owners give bad ratings only to create problems to the posters, I will stick to MyLot

Are you a postloop member too? Are you still active there? What was your experience there? Or you never registered at postloop? It was quite fun to post there, i was amazed at how fast i can reach payout, i just reached and withdrew my 1st $6 last sat. after just posting for 4 days, so i suggest you post there too. Can you send me the links of those nasty replies from the postloop staff to the complaining members? I would like to gauge how "nasty" they can be to the members who are complaining. As for me, i plan to just post on the forums that i'm subscribed to even if i don't gain points for it, but i'm afraid that i might don't get any rating even if i post like crazy, so my time might be a bit wasted if no one rated me, lol. I heard that the ratings now expire, but ever since i started posting in postloop last week, i only got 4 ratings, one was a dismal 1, that screwed my capability to get points. But i think that since i only got 4 ratings, they might not expire the next month when my ratings are supposed to be reset?

That is so bad. I have a postloop account that I don't get to visit anymore. I still enjoy it a lot more here in Mylot especially since I find it difficult to get a higher rating to help me earn money. Anyway, I hope you'd get to increase your rating. Just be patient and hopeful that someone else would rate you positively next time. Good luck!!!

Aaw you should come back, i find it quite easy to earn there, if i wasn't handed that 1 rating, i was about to cashout another $5 or so in 2 days. Although i was planning to cash out $10 this time if i didn't get that low rating. Anyway, yeah, that's what i'm doing right now, now i'm just posting in the forums in postloop hoping to get a rating from the admin. At least now i know what exactly happens when you get a lower than average rating, if that's a consolation, lol.

If I were to receive a rating of 1 at Postloop, I think I would be so depressed I won't be able to do anything. I usually get a rating of 4.0 and above and sometimes even get a perfect 5.0 so when I receivd a rating of 2.5 once, I got so depressed, I contacted the forum owner but I never receive a reply. I think these forum owners should at least be upfront about why they rate the way they do. Some of the low ratings that I get are given by anonymous forum owners. If I had known who they were, I would probably not go to their forums anymore. MyLot is definitely so much easier and more relaxed. I guess because of the higher pay at Postloop, they do have the right to demand more from their members. To increase your rating, you need to get a new rating from the forum owners and the way to do this is to keep posting because forum owners can only rate after you've made five posts. They do get rewarded for their ratings so it's to their benefit too to rate.

Yeah I guess we are left with no choice but to just post and post until we get rated. My ratings are now at 3.65, and that's still below the average rating. I have more than 10 ratings now and I wonder when will that 1 rating expire. It expires after a month right? You are lucky to receive a high 5 rating, my highest was only 4.6 from 1 forum. I notice that when I get a rating, the increase ranges from 1 to 10 points, and getting a 1 or 2 point increase every time you get rated seems like a far journey into being included in the average level again. I never knew that forum owners can re-rate us again, I thought that when they have already rated us once then that's it. I have a couple of forums that I have made 5 posts to, but I don't think that they have rated me yet. I tried registering too into other forums but my registration gets rejected even if I'm qualified ratings wise. Seems like the admin doesn't want to approve my registration because of my low rating.
