Hi Maryellen,

On occasion, I have wanted to highlight a topic that maybe of great interest but unfortunately when I click on the "Rate It" link all I get are five radio buttons without any indication of which is 5 star and which is 1 star. I would hazard a guess that the top on is 5 star (or ticks) etc. but would prefer to know which one I am selecting Smiler.

Also, I notice that in the Rules, Regulations and FAQs forum there is a Rating column shown. Is it possible to include this in the FOCUS/WebFOCUS forum as I think it could be most useful?

I'm giving it one last go-around and will keep you posted.
