The goal of the rating system in the Community Color sites is to help the best sites surface to the top.
The site had a rating engine and the rating engine would improve the profile of sites in the directory. Sadly, the engine was inundated with spam ratings.
I recently revived the rate engine. To rate a site, you must login.
If you log in, you will see a rate button next to each link.
If you are not logged in, the program will show a rate link for any site receiving positive rates.
Essentially, if you give a positive rating to a site, the directories will automatically give a second link to that site.
If you give a bad rating to a site, it might remove the second link.
My hope is that this rate engine will help give an extra boost to the best sites.
