rating downgrade
    #11404349 - 11/07/09 01:54 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

Why did my rating just go down one unit?  I can't see a new, low rating.

Does it have to do with the fact that my one rating is years and years old?

Thanks in advance.

I have logged in this once so that I can set the "last seen" feature up.  let the faggots flow forth into OTD and have it.  Its funny how they all grew nuts after I left.  I'm not here, I'm not reading, but I urge you all to keep melting down over me.  I know, I hurt alot of people, and they deserved it.  epic win for me, epic fail for you. 

ythan, you rock dude.  i feel that my time at the shroomery was very positive and enjoyable, but this site is no longer for me. im not mad or upset or disappointed, i just want no part in a pg rated faggot festival.

We use a custom weighting for ratings, where those who give out a lot of low ratings, have their low ratings weighted less.  Likewise, those who give out a lot of high ratings, have the higher ratings worth less.  Therefore, either some of the people who rated you highly have continued to give out high ratings to other members, thereby making their high ratings worth less in the weighted average system.  That, or the person who rated you poorly has given out more high ratings, making their low rating more powerful.

Do we still do this? Because this seems extremely unfair to me.

This is a relatively new feature, that doesn't have a huge impact on ratings generally speaking.  It was in fact implemented in order to be more fair; as we have experienced a phenomena of "ratings rapes" where a gang of members decide to collaborate and all rate an individual user poorly.  However under the new system, because these users tend to give out a lot of negative ratings, their negative ratings may be averaged to a 3 shroom instead of a 1 shroom.

There is surely still the potential for abuse, and if you suspect that someone is manipulating the system to troll other users, please let us know the details.  Otherwise, please realize that the ratings system will never be perfect, but that it can be entertaining and fun if not even a little informative.  Also recognize that you always have the option to opt-out of ratings entirely if you just can't stand 'em.
