+
+# Ratings
+
+Clerk can rate albums and tracks, which will be saved in MPDs sticker database as rating or albumrating.
+Track ratings should be compatible with all other MPD clients that support them.
+Albumratings are a unique feature to clerk, as far as I know.
+
+It's also possible to store ratings in file tags. Currently this is supported for flac and mp3 files.
+For this to work, simply set `tagging=true` in clerk.conf file and set your music_path.
+
+It’s even possible to tag files not on the same machine (On MPD setups with remote clients).
+Simply copy your clerk.conf and clerk_rating_client to the machine hosting your audio files and
+make it sure it runs there.
