Well, this is interesting. I noticed today on my profile that a rating has disappeared on the rating counter. I was at 120 now it's down to 119. Is this possible? I've never received a bad rating ever; I didn't know it was possible to delete a rating. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Just a few thoughts:

Yes ratings can be removed. I purchased an item from someone here left a rating and seller never gave Me a rating and I deleted mine! Did You forget to give someone a rating? Bet the buyer deleted his. I always rate if I have a transaction if the buyer or seller doesn't do the same I will delete My rating as I want more ratings, nothing went wrong just works two ways. Just My 2 cents.Also just wanted to add if you go to account menu You can check ratings given edit and also delete ratings.

The vast majority of the time this occurs because someone's account has been deleted. Any ratings associated with that account go bye bye. This happens rather frequently. As far as tracking this activity....it really isn't worth the time or effort IMHO! wink
