But why worry at all about it? I say "Chill", relax, it is summer and too hot for such concentration on trivialities. Find a hammock and rock yourself to calm.
Thank you Doris, I just came in from moving the water sprinkler in my garden and feeding my livestock; now sitting cooling off from something more than goings on, on GP; triple digit temps and index of 116. I just wanted a better understanding of what happened and not trying to be trivial. I check my ranking ever now and then; meaning not everyday, just for curiosity. So I questioned what I saw. What does ranking mean anyway going by openly rated votes? Ranking does not say what level of poet you are. I comment on very little these days; because of time. What do comments and votes really mount up to; surely not how good a poet is. A lot of comments seem to me like more of a pat on the head between friends. So I agree it is trivial; but it is part of the site.
ACTIVE: Poets must have 10 or more openly rated poems published in the past 6 months to be ranked.
And I had far more at 207? Actually I am not counting poems here I counted openly rates and I misspoke. It still leaves me around 57 as you spoke of; far a head 10 openly rated poems.
