Aunty Repo, help!!!

I don't know why some people's review go through, while some end up only adding up the value of votes.

A friend of mine tried to rate this afternoon, and spent a long while endlessly searching for the five stars to rate (which were missing from his own account, for reasons best known to oga at the top.

Or is it my friend who rated a four but got a one at the other side of the loading page.

I don't know if I'm missing some more points, but I plead that you and those involved to look into the effective running of the site, so that even after this competition we can still use it perfectly and be happy as its alumni.
