They don't tell us because people will do things they shouldn't to try to make their votes count for more. If we don't know we'll just vote truthfully and appropriately.

You should not do anything just to become a regular voter...just vote as you would if there were no such thing.

1. IMDb does not disclose their criteria for what they consider a regular voter. This makes it more difficult for people to adversely affect the weighted rating of a film. For more details, please see:
http://www.imdb.com/help/search?domain=helpdesk_faq&index=1&file=votes&ref_=hlp_sr_1

2. Your best bet to become a regular voter is to see lots of films from start to end and honestly rate each one of those films.

3. Your IMDb account does not need to be authenticated for your vote to count. Authentication is strictly for posting on the IMDb message boards and is done to reduce inappropriate conduct on the message boards.
