Moksha’s rating for a single submission is calculated from the average of all reader ratings for that submission. Sometimes, however, you may wish to start over and reset those ratings.
Moksha allows you to reset submission ratings to zero. For example, let’s say you have several submissions which are rated greater than 7 that you wish to review in a second round, with the ratings reset to zero. Use Moksha’s Advanced Search feature to select all submissions with a rating greater than 7. E.g.:
Once you have the submissions you want to zero listed in your submissions index view, click the “Bulk Actions” button (the three-layer icon) and choose “Zero Ratings”.
A dialog box will pop up asking you to confirm the zeroing. Click to continue.
These submissions will now have a rating of zero, or none. Also, submissions will now show a notice in their comments that the rating was zeroed:
Some important considerations:
- Moksha calculates the rating based on the average of all ratings for that submission.
- Ratings are calculated when a new rating is added.
- If the ratings have been zeroed, Moksha calculates the rating based on the average of all ratings after the latest zeroing. For example, if you have 5 ratings before the zeroing, and 2 ratings after, Moksha will only consider the two ratings after the zeroing when calculating the rating average.
- To undo a zeroing for a submission, delete the zeroing comment(s). The submission rating will not change immediately, but it will update when the next rating is made.
- You must have the permission to edit submissions enabled in your profile to zero submission ratings.
