|:||Yes, this track fits my mood perfectly! (value: 10)|

|:||Nope, I don't feel like hearing this at all right now... (value: 0)|
The second system, which is only shown when you are logged in, is a 10-star 'overall' rating. This is used to set your personal ranking of the track and you have only one of these votes. However, you CAN change it. This is to be considered as what you feel about the track once and for all, whilst the mood-vote is more to reflect on how you feel about the track at the very moment it's played. Think of this vote as the 'heavy' one that actually tells how you feel about the track, so think about what you grade it with.
Since ratings and grades are completely subjective, it's sometimes better to leave tracks alone if they are in a style you totally don't like. Therefor, if there is a track playing of a genre that you absolutely don't like, it's better to NOT give it a star rating of 1 just because you dislike the genre and hence dislikes the track, but simply leave it be instead. You don't HAVE to vote on all tracks just for the sake of it. The mood-votes would be more appropriate for use at that point instead.
The amount of lit stars shown reflects on YOUR rating and not on the whole community. More detailed rating statistics will be displayed at a later stage and on multiple places on the site.
