#### Comment Preferences

• ##### I need some clarification, if(none)
(none/0) = no rating, does the number to the left of the backslash mean the 0-4 rating? And does the number to the right of the backslash mean the number of people who have rated the comment? Why is there a decimal in some of the numbers on the left sometimes?

I've been enjoying this site for at least 7 or 8 months (I think!). Hope this isn't a totally idiotic question, I've just never been able to figure it out. Thanks in advance.

• ##### none (left) means average of ratings IF(none)
you have two or more. Right means how many rated you. So:

• none/0 means no one rated you.
• none/1 means one person did.
• 3.50/2 means one 3, one 4.

• ##### none/0(none)
would indicate an average rating of none (0), by 0 people--nobody has rated it yet.  A rating of none/1 indicates that one person rated the article.  Ratings are only visible after two or more users have rated the article.
The number to the left is the average rating for the article, and the number on the right is the number of users rating the article.
The average rating is derived by the cumulative rating divided by the number of rating users.
