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> <br> <option value="2" selected>2</option> <br> <option value="3">3</option> <br> <option value="4">4</option> <br> <option value="5">5</option> <br> </select> votes
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…
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.
