I should just admit here that I do want my little silver mistress to be Number One some day
That might put off buying her more Jewlery for a bit longer
It's because of the logorithmic implementation to weight out statistical margin of error. For example if there are 50 votes from 8-10 and a few 1's or 2's... they are not counted very heavily because they don't represent the majority. It's also based on the number of total votes. For example if someone signs up with a new car, and has one vote of "10", they would have an average of "10", but they would not be in the number one place. Make sense? The car with a lower rating can be above the car with a higher rating because there's a lot MORE high votes for the car ranked higher.... if that makes sense. haha, do you get it or should I try to explain it better?
