Using GroupLens GroupLens Displaying Predictions
In GroupLens, an article is rated on a scale from 1 to 5, inclusive. Where 1 means something like this article is a waste of bandwidth and 5 means that the article was really good. The basic question to ask yourself is, "on a scale from 1 to 5 would I like to see more articles like this one?"
There are four ways to enter a rating for an article in GroupLens.
r | This function will prompt you for a rating on a scale of one to five. |
k | This function will prompt you for a rating, and rate all the articles in the thread. This is really useful for some of those long running giant threads in rec.humor. |
The next two commands, n and , take a numerical prefix to be the score of the article you're reading.
1-5 n | Rate the article and go to the next unread article. |
1-5 , | Rate the article and go to the next unread article with the highest score. |
If you want to give the current article a score of 4 and then go to the next article, just type 4 n.
