Help with Comments and Scoring
Who can vote (rate) or comment on a logo?
You must be logged in to vote or comment. To login you must have created a free user account (user profile) by signing up.
Any user who is signed in can bury a comment. When a comment is buried by 3 users it is hidden from view by default.
You can edit your own comments. If the comment has a score attached you can also change your rating of the logo.
You can use textile to enhance your comments. See this page for details.
What is the difference between score and ratings and how are they calculated?
Score is made up of the votes cast by users against your logos and earned from other activity such as competition wins. Views are the number of unique page views your logo gallery/detail page has received. Note also that votes by qualified users such as "Pro" designers, clients, etc are worth more to your overall score.
How is score calculated?
Score = votes. Score is calculated as follows.
Vote cast by a standard user:
- 1 bottle is worth 1 point.
- 2 bottles is worth 2 points.
- 3 bottles is worth 3 points.
Simple enough. However these votes are multiplied by 3 if the vote is cast by a Pro Designer.
Vote cast by a Pro Designer:
- 1 bottle is worth 3 points.
- 2 bottles is worth 6 points.
- 3 bottles is worth 9 points.
Additionally, votes by a client in his/her own competition are worth 10 times.
Vote cast by a Client in own competition:
- 1 bottle is worth 10 points.
- 2 bottles is worth 20 points.
- 3 bottles is worth 30 points.
Additionally competition wins are worth 100 points each.
While a user can comment multiple times a user can only vote once per logo. A user may also change his/her vote.
