The Discussion Rating System (DRS)
December 3, 2006 11:54am CST
I was reading through MyLot's FAQs the other day and found this... if you did not know... I think it is really important for everyone to make the money they really earn and not just get money for posting. Just in case you didn't see this: The Discussion Rating System (DRS) allows users to rate the usefulness of topics, responses and comments on myLot. The goal of the DRS is to help keep the quality of myLot discussions as high as possible for all members. myLot members should rate discussions, responses, and comments based upon quality and usefulness. We are very excited about the DRS and encourage everyone to use it. The DRS is factored into our proprietary earnings algorithm, so this will help us properly reward valuable contributions to the myLot community. How do I use the DRS? The DRS is very straight-forward and easy to use: * Read the topic, response, or comment. * If you find the topic, responses, or comment useful, then positively rate that action by clicking on the plus sign (+) next to it. * If you find the topic, response, or comment not useful and feel it negatively impacts the myLot community, then negatively rate that action by clicking on the minus sign (-) next to it. * If you have no strong opinions either way, you should not rate the topic, response, or comment. You should never the need to rate every action. Many actions are indeed “neutral” and should not be rated at all. * If you feel the topic, response, or comment violates the myLot community guidelines, then click on the explanation point (!) next to it, and report the abuse to the myLot staff. What if I disagree with someone? Should I give that response or comment a negative rating? Absolutely not! In fact, if you disagree with a response or comment, but still feel it positively contributes to the discussion, you should rate it positively. Differing opinions and viewpoints tend to make for the most interesting discussions. Just thought I'd throw it out there, I use it all the time, it's a great way to keep track of the replies I receive in my discussions and helps clean up all the mylot losers.
