1. How do I rate things on RateItAll?
It's easy! Just click the "Review It!" button next to the item you want to rate on any ratings list or fill in the review field on any listing page.

You will be promoted to create an account before your review posts publicly. We ask you to register because it allows us to protect the integrity of our ratings.  You can register by creating a new, RateItAll account, or by using Facebook Connect.

Once you're a registered user, you will be able to write a review of anything in the RateItAll database from a variety of different pages on the site.
 

2. How do I add a new item to RateItAll?
You may add a new item to RateItAll by using our RateItAll Promote tool. Additionally, on every list page, you will see a link that says "Add Item" - this tool will let you submit a new item to a particular list.

Once your new listing is approved by RateItAll staff, you will receive a notification email with a link to that listing.

Registered users who have a new item listing approved will be accredited on that page, with a link to their profile page.

If you are interested in adding hundreds, thousands, or millions of items to RateItAll, please contact us.

 

3. How do I meet people on RateItAll?
Meeting people on RateItAll is easy. The first thing you should do is to set up a User Profile Page. You can do this by clicking on the Profile Page link in the upper right hand corner of every page. Make sure to share something about yourself, and if you upload a photo, even better!

To learn more about any reviewer on RateItAll, just click on their User Name and visit their Profile Page. On a Profile Page, you can see photos, read their personal profile, read comments that the reviewer has posted, see WebLists that they have published, and even send them a personal message.

Once you have set up your profile, join into the discussion. Start by rating and reviewing things that you like and dislike - people will soon notice your comments and may contact you for more information.  And if you read a review that you like, make sure to send the reviewer a personal message saying you appreciate their comments!

Once you're comfortable with RateItAll, you should try setting up a list of your own and invite your friends to participate.


4. How can I get notified of new reviews on a certain subject or from a certain reviewer?

Registered RateItAll members can sign up for the following email alerts:

1) Email notification when a new review is posted to a specific page
2) Email notification when a new listing is added to a specific ratings list
3) Email notification when a specific user leaves a new review

To sign up for email alerts, just look for the email icon on various pages of the site.

You can manage your email alerts via your User Preferences page.

 
 
5. How do I add people to my network? 

To add people to your network, go to their profile page and click the "Follow Me" button under their photo.  Following on RateItAll is asynchronous - meaning that just because someone is following you does not mean that you have to follow them.  Following a RateItAll reviewer will automatically insert that person's reviews into your home page newsfeed.

 
6. How can I change my ratings?
You can change your previously submitted ratings and comments any time you want. Just find a page that shows the item you want to re-rate and click the link that says "Edit."  Just make whatever changes you want and click the "SAVE" button. Your changes will be made immediately.


 
7. How can I change my registration information?
To change your registration information, go to your account settings page.


 
8. Does RateItAll edit the ratings or comments that people leave?
We never edit your ratings or comments. Once you share an opinion, it goes right into the database. We do, however, reserve the right to delete comments that contain offensive material (hate group propaganda, extreme profanity, etc.).

 
 
9. Is my information safe with you?
Yes, your information is safe with us! RateItAll will NOT release your personal information without your consent. Period. For details, please read our Privacy Policy.

 
 
10. How can I use RateItAll to make buying decisions?
Here's an example: let's say you're thinking about buying some new music. If you go to our "Alternative/Indie Rock Musicians" page, you can quickly find the top rated bands.  Throughout the site, you will see links to services like Amazon that allow you to purchase related products.


 
11. How can I use RateItAll to share my opinion?
Here's an example: let's say you just took a trip and the airline treated you poorly. If you go to our "Airlines" ratings list, you can give that airline a low rating, then leave a text review that warns other people not to fly with them.


 
12. How can I use RateItAll to start an information search?
Here's an example: let's say you want to find some good Web sites about a certain actress. If you go to our "Actresses" page and click on the name of the actress you're interested in, you will find a list of links that have all kinds of information about her.


 
13. How can I delete my account?
In some cases, we can assist you with the deletion of your account.  For security reasons, we require an email to [email protected] to request assistance with account deletion.  

For larger accounts (typically those with more than 100 reviews), we are unable to offer automated deletion assistance due to the way our database is configured.  In these instances, the member is welcome to delete their own reviews individually.  As a less drastic option, we suggest changing your RateItAll nickname to something unrecognizable.

 
 
14. How can I add an entirely new ratings list to RateItAll?
To add an entirely new ratings list to RateItAll use this tool.
