Yes, the stars are out tonight!

A new feature was just added to the Fifteen Minutes of Fiction website. Now, if you are logged into your membership account, when you visit a post (other than one of your own posts) you will see a box at the bottom of the post that looks something like this:

All you need to do is slide your mouse across the stars until the right number of stars is highlighted, and then click the star. (For example, click the left-most star to award one star, and click the right-most star to award five stars).

The site remembers the total number of stars which has been awarded to each post, and eventually this information will be used to help track the most popular writers and writings on the site.

Please remember: this is not like a normal rating system, in which "one out of five" means "BAD". If you think a post is BAD, don't award it any stars at all. An award of one star means: "I liked this piece of writing."
