Frequently asked questions

A listing is a business’s page on QWerkyness.com, containing the business’s QWerky index rating, reviews, and photos. This page may also have content that the business provides, such as photos and events.
The QWerky rating is based on how quirky our users feel the listing is. Users may leave a rating even if they have never visited the establishment. Any comments made by unregistered users that are subsequently challenged by business owners may be removed. A QWerky rating is a way for users to quickly share opinion on how quirky they believe a listing is. QWerky ratings are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the quirkiest. The overall rating displayed on QWerkyness.com reflects the aggregate of all individual QWerky ratings for a particular listing. Ratings stay on our site indefinitely. Any user of QWerkyness.com can leave a rating and make comment without registering.
