My Ratings

These are the stories you've flagged for reading and/or rated after you've read them. In lieu of a spreadsheet, use the My Ratings page to build your shortlist of stories to nominate for annual awards like the Hugos, Locus, Nebula, and magazine-specific reader polls.

There's a My Ratings page per year, and your ratings are grouped by year and saved with that year's My Ratings URL when you click the 💾 Backup button and bookmark the page. Remember to backup regularly in case the browser cache gets cleared.

If you want to track your reading on multiple devices and your browser can replicate bookmarks across those devices, you can use this backup mechanism to do that as long as you remember to "synchronize" (backup) after each session. The backup code will merge the local and bookmark data by having a rating overwrite a flag where there's a conflict.

It updates the URL with your data, which can be saved in your browser as a date/time stamped bookmark. If your browser replicates bookmarks across platforms, access the bookmark from another device to transfer your ratings. Repeat after you use each device.
