Ratings Why rate comics ? Chances are you like all the comic book you have in your ComicRack™ library, or else it wouldn’t be there. But there are always some comics that you like more than others. You can rate all these comic books on your ComicRack™ on a scale of 0 to 5, with 0.1 increments. But why would you want to do that? If you’ve got a large library, it’s going to be a lot of work. Well, there are a few reasons to rate your comic books: ▶▶ To create Smart Lists Smart Lists are a kind of automatically created comic book list that ComicRack™ can generate based on criteria you create. One kind of Smart List that can be created is based on the rating assigned to comic books. As a result, you can create a Smart Playlist that includes all of your 5-star rated comic books, and automatically adds new comic books to the list as you rate them 5 stars. Similarly, if you wish to delete a comic book (or comic book series) from the library that you didn’t like, but still want to retain the info, you can list all the 1-star (or lower) rated comic books, and convert them all to fileless entries. ▶▶ To compare your ratings with community ratings Art lies in the eyes of the beholder. Everyone can interpret a piece of art in a different manner. Art lovers like to interact and share each others’ views. The internet has made the world so small that we are lucky enough to receive the views of people who are much learned/experienced in certain fields than us. ComicRack™ provides both your and community ratings at the same time, so that you may see how your ratings stand with that of the rest of the comic lovers and reviewers.
