first of all your trying to fix something that has no solution no matter what you do your rating will ALWAYS be dependent on the opinions of everyone that means the 3.0 rated people now are still going to give you bad ratings no matter what why are you wasting so much time trying to fix something that will never be solved? give up im trying to save people time by making them realize what you are trying to do but you ignore me with your stubborness to see what im saying and your so set on your always right
You're right, of course the rating system is always dependent on peoples' opinions - that's the point, of course. You and jrh have claimed that it is important to ensure that you don't get a biased rating because you only play certain types of people, and I assert that this is precisely the problem that the proposed system fixes. There's nothing I or anyone can do about the inherent problem that some people always give 5s and some people always complain and give terrible ratings. What we can do is make all the non-ratings equal to zero so that the ratings average out at zero. In the current system, if you get a bunch of ratings that are biased or don't make sense given a normal distribution, you're stuck with that rating. In the new system, your score will become closer to the mean because most likely a lot of your opponents didn't rate you (and thus didn't see you as particularly extraordinary), and so actually you're protected from that.and come on seriously people who actually deserve 5.0 ratings right now will not get it ever because with this new system you are making it imposible to get the highest rating posible because there will ALWAYS be people who never rate its just unfair and stupid to some of the people who actually care about the ratings
No one deserves a perfect rating. The people who deserve high ratings will get it, in the new system. The people who don't, i.e. most people, will not.You can leave ratings for 91 members!
i have that message sitting there right now i've had it up to 200 people and i can tell you that those 200 people dont all deserve that 0 star rating
Then rate them. If you choose not to rate them, you're saying they're not out of the ordinary enough to justify the two seconds it takes to go to the ratings page and fill it out. In what way do they not deserve to be rated average by you?
did you ever think i didnt pay attention to how they played?that i didnt watch every single move they made on every single turn or maybe if i were to rate someone i would want to take more than 2 seconds to do it or god forbid i just dont feel like it! drop the only ordinary people wont be rated thing because its bs
