Hello Fellow Book Bloggers! Today I would like to share with you about NetGalley Feedback Ratio. After you read through this post, you will know how to obtain your 80% badge. Good luck everyone!
Here is how you calculate to see how many books you have to read or how many feedbacks you have to send in order to obtain the 80% badge. You can use my current situation as an example. I have a problem with the request button, so I am a little ashamed of my current situation.. haha..
HOW TO CALCULATE:
My NetGalley Profile shows: 130 Approved 70 Feedback Sent Feedback Ratio 54%
1) 70 divide 130 equals 54%, which matches the total feedback ratio percentage display on my profile.
2) 130 approved multiply 80% equals 104 books I should read or feedbacks sent to obtain 80% badge.
3) I have already sent 70 feedbacks, so I take 104 feedbacks minus 70 feedbacks sent equals 34 feedbacks I need to send or books I need to read to obtain the 80% badge.
Side note and not part of the calculation:
You may think that I have 60 books to read (130-70=60) but no, I currently have 50 books to read on my shelf, which is still a lot. That being said, it looks like I had 10 DNF and therefore, I couldn’t provide a proper feedback and it was not count toward my feedback ratio.
I have noticed that the 80% badge is not necessary to have in order to get auto-approvals from publishers. I have had my account on NetGalley for 2 years and have been auto-approved without having ever had the 80% badge. I also noticed that I lose that privilege when I don’t review the books that I have been auto-approved for. It is just nice to have the 80% badge.
Again, good luck everyone! Let’s get our 80% badge together this year!
