What things can be rated
Ratings are used to rate civic services and places, including:
Government departments, offices or programs
Non-profit organisations with a civic aspect
Community services such as swimming pools or libraries
Role of service provider or owner of place being rated
Any user can add a civic service provider to Civically to be rated. If the service provider or owner of the place being rated did not add their service or place to be rated themselves, they can make a request to the moderators for ownership of the first post in the rating topic.
In considering such a request, the place moderators will take into account the views of the original poster and whether giving control of the first post to the service provider or owner is appropriate.
