To Admin:
To test the credibility of the star ratings in your new "Home Improvements" section, I just gave a business that I've never used a 5 star rating. What's to prevent competitors from tampering with these star ratings?

We control it on the back end of the website and if a user abused it, that would violate the rules of the forum and jeopardize there future on the site. But if someone tried to do specifically what you are saying above the star rating system is similar to Amazon or other star rating system as a user can only vote once per user for each advertiser. So eventually with many many people voting the star ratings indicate the majority of legitimate ratings just like "YELP" and other star ratings. In the end with all the users participation and support these ratings will accomplish what everyone is looking for which is to get a good idea of the contractor. We will have coming soon that you can read or make reviews which will also help fellow Villagers and add to the validity of the feedback.

FYI - The TOTV Home Improvement section is complete and adding more and more contractors all the time…

Please be sure to be LOGGED IN when using this section so you can give a STAR rating to the businesses you have used, etc so it helps fellow Villagers. Also, you can create or read personal reviews as well for each one or simply click on the COLORFUL INFORMATION and go directly to the contractors website.

All the info you could want is on here when looking for ANY Home Improvements. If you are looking for good contractors or businesses we ask that you use this section and rate them honestly. By doing this, we will only have a section of the best contractors for all Villagers!!!

We would love to hear your feedback on this section… Admin
