Your chance at last to press the Orgasmic button

A short note. In 2008, we introduced reader ratings to some Register stories and then to all stories on the site.

For some reason the feature was available to UK readers only - although the ratings bar appears globally on Reg Hardware and Channel Reg.

Today, we introduce the ratings sliders to the bottom of all Reg stories worldwide.

Everyone, that is everyone with Javascript enabled, has the opportunity to pick one of 10 options, ranging from "Utterly Terrible" to "Oh Orgasmic".

We publish the number of comments and aggregate the ratings to deliver an overall rating for each story.

And yes, ratings remain absent on m.theregister, the mobile-optimised version of our site. ®
