Rating Scale

On my first vsit to TripAdvisor I misunderstood your rating system seeing TERRIBLE at the far right I assumed GREAT was the far left. By the time I discovered that, I couldn't go back. Is there any way I can correct my first reviews? I would certainlly recommend a different format for your scale.

Hi Nancy,

Welcome to the Help Us Make TripAdvisor Better forum!

TripAdvisor does not allow edition to reviews. You will need to have your reviews and resubmit. This works as long as your date of stay or date of service is within the past 12 months; otherwise you will not be able to resubmit.

To request TripAdvisor to remove reviews, use this form:


I hope that helps.

Welcome to TripAdvisor, Nancy;

By placing your mouse over the rating, it displays what that rating dot stands for, IE Terrible or Excellant.

Best Regards

I've seen other people make the same mistake; I sent a PM to one member who gave a 1-star rating but then wrote a glowing review. Turns out she thought she had given the highest rating.

It temporarily fills in the dots for you just by mousing over the rating, though. I have some issues with the ratings themselves, but not how the number is plugged in.
