User ratings

Each content item on the site other than comments is assigned a number of points. (Currently each type-- story, poll, book) is assigned the same weight-- 1 point.

Every item submitted by a user that ends up posted on the site is used to calculate a user's rating.

Current ratings on Rampancy include roughly two thousand stories posted since the site originally opened as The Core on May 26, 1999.

User ratings are updated every hour.

A modification to include comments in the rating is under consideration.
