There are as many systems to apply ratings as there are things which can be rated.

Ratings are applied as keywords beginning with #rating/

Anything can be rated.

This Digital garden uses a 5-star scale applied as follows:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Life defining. Part of my identity.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ — I am certain to recommend this enthusiastically to people I think would be interested. More than happy to watch it again. Very likely to buy the movie if I’ve seen it in the cinema.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ — Run of the mill good. Enjoyed it

⭐️⭐️ — Meh. Not great. The type of movie or book I finished but can’t be sure really why I bothered.

⭐️ — Never again! I didn’t enjoy it, I don’t like it, and I want that time of my life back.
