lkcl, the diary ratings are stored, and used when displaying recentlog, but are not loaded when you view someone's personal page, so you can't tell from their page if you've rated them before. As for setting the threshold, you can't. But I always view recentlog at thresh=4 - I have a link with that threshold on my homepage and when I type "adv" into firefox's location bar the first match is recentlog.html?thresh=4 - which works for me.

As for lost personal details - on the several occasions it happened to me I noticed that my certs no longer appeared on my personal page, but were still applied in the trust metric (I was still a journeyer, despite no certs being shown on my page). IIRC the certs you've received are denormalised on your personal record, but as long as the person who gave you that cert hasn't been wiped the trust graph will still use that cert. Or something like that, I haven't looked at mod_virgule for years. I've recorded some observations on lost accounts in the diaries for redi and returnoftheredi
