top charts page

top charts page should show only songs with at least 2 votes, according to me

I don’t see any reason to bother about this, it will solve itself in time when the song section grows…

as the archive grows, there will be a growing number of 80% songs with 10 ratings, suddenly beated by a 100% song with one rating

nothing unbearable to me: just some unfairness which can be solved with a WHERE clause into an SQL query

I misunderstood, point taken.

But then even 2 votes is too little IMO.

there could be a dropdownlist with a default value:

at least  
<select id="NUM_RATERS"><br>
<option value="1">1</option>
<option value="2" selected>2</option>
<option value="3">3</option>
<option value="4">4</option>
<option value="5">5</option>

Well isn’t it weird that 100% is worse than 90?

Of course, 2 people may vote for 90 and 1 for 100% but still 100% is more!

Current sorting priority is 1) voting score, 2) (if same score) number of voters, 3) (if same score and # voters) date added

I originally wanted to make this voting in following fashion:

  • Voters would vote for songs…
  • Each month/2 months/whatever time list would be reset to latest entries only - kinda like monthly top-list.
  • If new votes are added to same song, it is inserted back into top-list - this would maintain songs that are “evergreens” to stay in top-list
    for long time, and those that only occasionally receive votes to fade out of it.

I would still have to look how to implement all of this but seems fair to me…

Your oppinions?

How about an additional option for sorting by the number of votes above a certain treshold?
For instance select 70%, and the songs with the most votes equal to or above this rating will be on top.
