7.14.2 Rating Articles

In GroupLens, an article is rated on a scale from 1 to 5, inclusive. Where 1 means something like this article is a waste of bandwidth and 5 means that the article was really good. The basic question to ask yourself is, "on a scale from 1 to 5 would I like to see more articles like this one?"

There are four ways to enter a rating for an article in GroupLens.

r
This function will prompt you for a rating on a scale of one to five.

k
This function will prompt you for a rating, and rate all the articles in the thread. This is really useful for some of those long running giant threads in rec.humor.

The next two commands, n and , take a numerical prefix to be the score of the article you're reading.

1-5 n
Rate the article and go to the next unread article.

1-5 ,
Rate the article and go to the next unread article with the highest score.

If you want to give the current article a score of 4 and then go to the next article, just type 4 n.
