Sounds good with me - I like stars :)
+ it appears that pretty much every voter is still stuck on voting only 10/10, very few exceptions. Perhaps giving less stars will be easier on us = voters rather than some numerical values.

Funny how what goes around comes around - When SP was first started, Version 1 I guess, all voting was on a four star basis. There was the option of "no stars" which really made it a 5 star system of sorts. You also had the option of putting comments directly with your vote thus explaining it. I have some screen captures of some very "interesting" comments by some members who later flamed out.

So what would come of the archived votes? x to x/2 What about 7, would it become 3 or 4? Stars seem friendly kinda evoke music lessons http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCjJyiqpAuU

As a matter of interest, did a 3 increase the page score or was it negative like a 9 in Version 2?

Please just do not describe a 5/5 page as "the best ever." I think "almost very good to excellent" would make much more sense.

I give "5 Stars" or an old-fashioned "10" to the 5 Stars voting idea :) .

I think that "5 stars" - 5 options + 1 another option (no votes) - are enough. A question: does a "1 star" vote - the minimum - increase or lower the page's score?

I like a straight 5 star system with the quick voting, and like Scott suggested having the half stars display in the average only.

Like Scott mentioned, images with few votes might end up at the top of the heap, not sure how to resolve that, but at the very least still show the total number of votes a page/image received.

Thanks!
