I'm going to answer as an adult, for once!

Well, The story is rated 1, at the beginning. Then, if someone likes it, he clicks the Rate Up button, and now you have 2 rate ups. and so on and so on. A person can only rate up once.

So you're saying that, 1. If i have a story rated "6", that means six different readers gave it an "up" rating?, and, 2. If my friend has a story rated "41" last week (she did), forty-one different readers each rated her story up once?

1. five(!) people rated it up! the counting begins at one. This is so EPeeps won't feel depressed to see 0 people have rated their story. Therefore, you friend story was rated up by 40(!) people, not 41.
