It seems to relate to the much-loved pop-under.

Another number. More stars, I wonder?

I have, and I am not a very happy camper about it.

Seems those irritating pop-unders were meant for more than what we might have expected. I filled out some, mostly in jest, as over time, I found them to be quite irritating.

Yikes -- now I have provided ratings to a huge number of places, attractions, and the like!!!!

Thanks, but no thanks ... and I have asked for my list to be removed.

It does

I was stupid enough to think that if I rated the ones I had experience of the pop up would disappear - sadly it has not

I see you two tried much harder than I did

Well, thats about as dumb a thing I've seen in a long time. I rated on a lark too. Remember the review I did and it got deleted because the place is closed? It's in the rating tab!! Geez, people. I haven't seen the pop up in almost a week, YAY!!

As I've succeeded in defeating the pop-under, I guess my "Rating" rating is frozen in time now. :(

But if they do introduce stars for it .............

I have just seen that some people have rated 100's of them - WOW

I will now go and stand in the corner and feel ashamed of my meagre count of 22

I wonder if these standalone ratings are taken account of in the PI???

With all the great ideas that have been posted on the HUMTAB forum, someone decided that THIS would be an welcome improvement ?

What a waste of time and energy !

Absolutely crazy and a complete waste of time and effort by some department at Trip Advisor.

Why on earth don't they at least consult the DE's of Trip Advisor Support before they go live with useless items like this?

Fortunately I only have two showing because I clicked on those whilst viewing the site on Internet Explorer, just to see what happened. Thanks goodness I have the pop unders blocked on Firefox so I never see them.

I suppose we are stuck with those we have, as I guess there is no way of deleting them.

"You have not contributed any ratings yet... but we hope you will!" I win! I didn't even nipple at the pop-under.
