You need to be logged in before you click on the channel connect button (i.e. before the popup window appears).
You also need to go to your account settings page (link in the left hand box "logged in"), then click "Edit", then the "Personal information" button, then make sure the "Hall of Fame participant" checkbox is checked (and click "Save" of course). If you clicked it while registering you don't need to do it again.
There's a delay of about a minute before your ratings get updated on the site.
