How to report your visual estimates?

Hello everyone!

I have a question regarding how to report your visual estimates to AAVSO..

BAA.VSS is advising to round your magnitude estimates to nearest tenth of a magnitude, for example 6.44 > 6.4 and 6.47 > 6.5.

I haven't found any advise on this while browsing the AAVSO visual observing manual.

Does AAVSO have any official advise about this, should we round the estimates or not?

Best regards,
