Why a post about ranking ?
Giving 20/20 only “because it’s cool”, and conversely 0/20 only “because I don’t like it” generally end up giving a uninteresting ranking. Because of this, here are a few tips :

If you don’t know how to give constructive feedback, or if you don’t know what rate it deserve, have a look at the rating reference. Then just follow the form to have the grade ! You may give the custom code of your rating so that the author can see what he can improve.
Of course, giving a grade “just because it’s cool” or “because I don’t like” is also accepted ! There are always exceptions.
