It has been observed that rating drops affect new reviewers (assuming you are new).

Also possible that there is a misinterpretation from your side and the criteria wording. Consider revisiting the tooltips (i) under every section of the review page. The details under Appropriate is probably the most overlooked one.

We don’t know exactly how they determine rating, but remember that it takes a while for nominations you review to move through the process to a decision. If you have reviewed a thousand nominations and only had one agreement, it might mathematically look like you are doing a bad job, even if you aren’t.

I advise folks to start slowly, not doing too many too quickly. Be sure to read and reread the tool tips and criteria pages. And you have three skips you can use, which each have a 24 hour timer for anything you just aren’t sure about.
