You can only scorecard an item or service if you have registered for an account. You don't have to place any advertising on the website to use the scorecard. If you are trying to scorecard an advertisement that is old, search for the advertisement in the category and at the end of the search list will be expired advertisements. Once you have retrieved the advertisement, you can scorecard it in the normal way.
