This is good. It looks like most everyone people will be okay with the proposed changes. i was supposed to complete this change today but the server got in my way and I'm going to have to get to it later. More on this later.

Hi Joe

Is there a plan to update the "how to use Ratebeer" bit on the homepage? Now with all the changes with ticks, tags etc. some of us old dinosaurs aren't quite sure what's going on and would probably like to use the new features if they were explained? People sometimes assume that just because you are online you know everything about being online. Some sort of "what you can do on Ratebeer" would be useful for Newbies and Oldies alike.

What do you think? Or am I typically missing something that is already there?

I've heard ticks spread nasty diseases anyway...


This.

Wow, thank you so much for filling in a blind spot for me. I am sorry I've neglected this entirely.

I am so down in the weeds with RateBeer that I would do this very poorly. I wonder if there's someone on the team who has recently gone through the learning process who can put together a quick how-to?

That's exactly what I used the Old ticks for: Ticks with a 1 note was my beer cellar

If I start to tick beers I could just start rating Pale lagers as well - it doesn't give me anything.

Trading or Tastings CHECK also my "Beer Ticks"
1 star = in backlog
2 stars = in order
3 stars = at next tasting
4 stars = in ongoing trade
5 stars = in cellar not rated


that is completely awesome

The only thing I could add that hasn't already been mentioned in this thread is that I tick a beer (one star) that I've already fully rated when my experience was markedly different and I need to re-rate it some time. That rarely happens (the re-rating) so it's no big deal. Otherwise the only time I'd have duplication is when I forget to delete the tick after adding a full rating.

I have been both ticking and rating my beers. But, not lately as ticking is broken and will not work for me at all. I click on a star and.....wait for it.....NOTHING.
