#303. What is the Ratings feature?

LiveJournal has tree popularity-based features:

Top Ratings are available to everyone on the [[gmlitem:/statistics/index.bml.title.ratings]] page.




    Popular Entries rating


    The Popular Entries rating on LiveJournal's homepage highlights recent entries which are popular with other LiveJournal users. It is updated every hour; the key parameter is number of unique users who have visited the page. The 25 most popular community entries can be seen on the homepage; next entries in the rating download dynamically as you scroll the page down.

    User rating


    On the main LiveJournal page and on the Ratings page you can see the rating of the most popular users counted by their social capital. You can view the most popular users:
    «all time» - By social capital: this rating is based on the social capital of the journal. The rating is updated once a day.
    «today» - By social capital for the last 24 hours: this rating is based on activity of all journal visitors for the last 24. This rating is updated once an hour.

    If you want to know where your or somebody else's journal is in the Ratings, use the search form on the Users Rating page.

    Community Rating


    On the main LiveJournal page and on the Ratings page you can see the rating of the most popular communities counted by their social capital. You can view the most popular communities:
    «all time» - By social capital: this rating is based on a social capital of the community. It is updated once a day.
    «today» - By social capital for the last 24 hours: this rating is based on activity of all journal visitors for the last 24. This rating is updated once an hour.

    If you want to know where a certain community is in the Ratings, use the search form on the Community Ratings page.

    Ratings Visibility for an Individual Entry


    Even if your journal or community participate in Ratings feature, you can exclude certain entries from the Ratings. To do this, you should check the box "Do not include in ratings" on the posting new entry page. If your journal or community does not participate in Ratings, you will not see this checkbox. This box will also be automatically checked (with no alternatives) if you are posting a private entry, as private entries are not displayed in Ratings.
