It is unlikely that any page will garner 20+ poor votes.
Also, if it were decided we want to do so, I could determine how to adjust the formula so that page scores decrease dramatically faster when getting low votes as opposed to how high votes are treated.

Page score = 70 + 30 * [1-1/e^((x-5.5)*y/5.555555)]
e = 2.718281828459
x = simple weighted average page score between 1 and 10 based on voter weighting (if all voters give a 10 then this average is a 10)
y = total number of votes for a page
foreach( $vote_data as $vote_d )
// Get the user's weight
$weight = get_vote_weight($vote_d['power'], $max_power);
$weighted_num_votes += $weight;
$weighted_vote_sum += $vote_d['vote'] * $weight;
$nat = 2.718281828459;
if( $tot_votes > 0 )
$weighted_average = $weighted_vote_sum/$weighted_num_votes;
$exp = ($weighted_average-5.5)*$tot_votes/5.555555;
$score = 70 + 30 * (1 - (1/(pow($nat, $exp))));
echo "$obj_id - $obj_name - score -- > $score\n";

mrchad9 wrote:If Matt says we can use two arguements (use one formula for 6-10 and another for 1-5 and add the results together) then this is very easy to do to handle low votes. Otherwise I need to think on it a while. Could probably come up with something that looks cleaner and hopefully accomplishes the same result (and perhaps better in the long run).
