What is with the rating points?
i'm starting out at 5 but...what does all this mean?
You can rate 5 stories this week, i.e. when you've read a fic, there is an option 'rate this story' at the bottom. If you click that link, then you get a chance to pick a term that you think describes the story best. This gives the story a rating. Doing this once uses one rating point. At the end of the week, the points refill.

Hopefully this was helpful,

Your can get more than five points in subsequent weeks if your karma goes up.

If you write a review that the author rates "useful" or if you leave a rating that other readers metarate as "fair," you will be rewarded with more points.
