Excuse um, but I can never finger out why some folks vote 8/10 or 9/10, and they leave
ZERO comment on how you can approve the page, or bring it up to par excellence.
Seems like some of these quiet, obscure folks should be communicating more ???
I love to get comments, both good and bad. BRING IT !!!!!!
8/10 and a 9/10 shouldn't be considered a bad vote. But if someone give a vote of 3 or lower then I think a little explanation is in order.
But it is a bad vote, such votes bring the photo's rating down...
And that is why I give everything a 10 unless the page is really bad. But that might be part of the problem
This is really the heart of the voting problem, as I pointed out when SP2 was first released. Nobody wants to vote less than 10 when it disproportionately downgrades the object's score. (If you vote 9, the object is given a score of 70...)
The scoring calculation should have been implemented as an average weighted voting system
, like schools use. Vote 10 = 100, 9 = 90, 8 = 80, etc. Everybody can understand that. The impact of your vote is predictable. There are no surprises.
Had that method been implemented from the start instead of the funky algorythms that we have today, people would have voted more honestly from the beginning. It's too late now though, now that people have already voted on 100,000's of objects. I don't guess this is going to change so there's no point in beating a dead horse.
