I figured out how to cheat--
--the rating system. I deleted and then reuploaded the particular chapter that got a bad rating. The word "boring" remained, but the number went from negative one to zero (and the review for that chapter was lost).

If you feel like removing temptation, you might want to alter this at your convenience.
We are of two minds about this loophole. We've known about it for a while... but it's tricky to think of a way to close it that doesn't also feel like it's unfairly penalizing someone who writes a mostly good story but uploads one half-assed chapter, gets rated down, realises that it's no good, and deletes it. If a chapter isn't part of a story any more, then it shouldn't affect the rating...

We shall ponder.
