Any possibility of transplanting  from galleries to BOT a coin/s without losing  5 ***** votes  ?
Same question ,but keeping 5 ***** and eliminating 1,2 or 3 ***  ?    :angel:

No, it's not possible for you to delete some ratings and keep others. The best that could be done would be for you to delete all the ratings so that the coin could start again.

If you transplant a coin from your own gallery to the BOT simply by altering the destination gallery the ratings and comments would be transplanted with it. However, doing such a thing is a bit unethical, in that coins are generally rated higher in an individual's personal gallery than they are in the BOT.

We would much prefer members to make a new upload when adding their coins to the BOT. What is the problem with that?

Alex.

I agree with Alex that moving entries from personal galleries to public galleries and "airbrushing" the ratings is quite unethical. I would think you would want to be fair and start the ratings anew in BOT.

Some people take these things WAY too seriously.

But it is disheartening when you have what you believe to be a great coin and someone gives it 2 stars.  :'(

If you do not like how a coin has been rated in your own gallery there are a couple of options for you.

You can just delete the ratings so the coin can start afresh.

You can make it so that no one can rate your coin at all, only post comments.

And, if you do not like the comments, you can make your gallery such that although everyone can view your coins, no one can rate or post comments on them.
 
Many members have chosen these options for one or more of their galleries.

It is your gallery so you can set it up any way you like.

In the case of the BOT any offensive comments will be removed.

I had a Severus II quarter follis on the BOT gallery for a while. I took it off because I realized I had misdescribed it as silvered. But while it was on there it received in order, two 5's, two 3's, a 2, and a 4. Obviously there are wide differences of opinion! Jim A
