Re Frustrated.
dr_banuska, I am sorry to hear that you believe that you are being unfairly rated. Note, rating is open to all users. When I look at the ratings for the comments you have received I note that your average rating for all your comments is 3.71 as of today at 8:29pm which is considerably better than average. Comparing it with the rating for all the other people on the page of your comment you are actually the third highest out of 8 which is doing well against commenters, some of whom have been putting in comments for 4 or 6 years.

As the site's organiser I do not control the rating. I have noticed over the years that comments that make their points briskly, with interesting non-obvious information, which are structured into paragraphs (use extra returns), have good photos etc tend to do well. Comments that have proper access points described with grid references are also at an advantage. I have also noticed that the score on comments tends to even out over the years.

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts
TommyV a day ago.
Ben Dash was one of my earlier attempts at hill bagging, back in the days when I had no gps and didn't believe I needed a map. I went through some bog that people had bagged turf on before I found...

My daughter, Ciara, has just completed an 11-day trek around the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayas. She's not a particularly experienced walker, so completing it was quite the achievement. Here's...

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV a day ago.
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from...

This hill is only a few kilometers over the road from my home house. However without Mountain Views website you would scarcely know it's a hill as it is situated in an area of high ground anyway s...

More of a drive than a hike. Well worth it for the views.
