13. Can I rate an experience I've had with someone anonymously?

Yes, you can. The process works as follows: you will always be required to select an identity you've registered with when rating an experience. Regardless of this, you still have the option of making the rating Anonymous (and thereby disclosing neither the identity you selected, nor your real name details to others for that rating). You are in control of what you choose to disclose.

Please be aware that ratings in which you disclose all or part of your real name together with your username-site identity are given much more weight when calculating the contribution of your rating to the person's Current Experience Rating (CER).

You may not see your topic or comment appear immediately after you've posted it - this is because some postings go through a moderation process. Your comment or topic will appear once your post is approved or you will be notified if the posting was rejected.

A UniqueCard is a mini-profile that is created for you when you register. You can choose to refer people to this UniqueCard when you're sending messages, rating experiences or making posts in the Community area of this site.
