Netflix is back up, but ratings are broken

After being down all day Monday, the popular movie-by-mail site is back up with some technical difficulties.

Being a Netflix subscriber, I've been checking the site all day to see if it is back up and running. There has been coverage of this problem throughout the day and the site is finally back up, but I have noticed a fairly glaring problem: Netflix's movie ratings are broken.

Rating movies is one of Netflix's main features, and there are no doubt some confused users on the site right now. Multiple sources have confirmed the inability to rate movies. This is probably a glitch left over from the outage.

As you can see in this screenshot, there are no stars for rating anywhere to be seen. I'm sure that Netflix will be correcting this problem shortly, but I just wanted to point it out in the meantime.
