I try to rate as fairly as I can. I admit, my first days on this site was like 2,3, and 4 didn't exist!
I would only rate dolls I like a 5 and dolls I dislike a 1. But now I try to rate fairly. The thing I most dislike is somebody going onto a contest that they entered and rating their doll a five and everybody else's a 1. It aggravates me. I totally agree with Lovie. A kudos system would be perfect. And you can't vote on your own doll. I would like that! See if your doll would win truthfully. Not because you voted it a 5.
