Could not write the rating in bold

I just had a mishap when I was submitting a book review. I definitely put the rating in bold but I did not put it in the exact same way as the guidelines. That is, I did not use the sentence,"I rate this book 3 out of 4 stars. I tried to submit it twice and it never showed up as bold until I used the exact sentence as in the guidelines. Is this because of the new rating system or is my word processor just glitching? I am also wondering if I received a demerit for submitting the review that did not adhere with the guidelines ( though I did adhere to them)

Add the bolding bbc after pasting the review in. If you are still unable to get it to work, try manually typing it in. :tiphat:

The bold feature is not affected if you write the rating sentence or any other sentence differently. However, you do have to use the format x out of 4 - otherwise, the review will be automatically blocked. As Gravy, you have to apply the bold after the review is in the box.
