yeah man i wouldn't worry about the 1's. your car is HAWT

and you're from oregon?! NICE, you have to come to some of our meets this summer up in Washington!!

edit: so i just checked it again, a person 3 spots before me has a lower average rating than me?? is the ranking based on the average rating, or something else?

Read back a page or so in this thread. It's not just about ranking, it's also the number of goods vs the number of bads. For example if you have 50 votes, all between 7 and 10 (avg of 8.9), compared to someone with three 9's and two 10's (avg of 9.3), the 8.9 might rank above the 9.3 because there's less variance in the voting. Most people vote it high, rather than just a few. This way a new car can't get one vote of 10 and be at the number 1 spot.

So did you find a new formula?

And thanks for the Tens from everyone. I have to admit that I did give out a few ones, but I have updated my votes on all the cars I gave ones too. :/

Fixed the bug fix for spaces, haha. No one has to reupload anything if you haven't already. Spaces can now be used in any filenames without a problem. Anyone's picture that wasn't working before for this reason should now work fine.

Nice site Komodo! Nice touch with the car voting system. How many pics can you have to vote on? Is there a one car pic per member or can you load mutilple pics to be voted on?

I am a member of many boards and a mod on one, but you site is starting to take on it's own personality, which is hard to do in this day and age, and is rounding out quite nicely.

Keep up the good work and I will try and load some pics of my M when I get a chance. Remember Bimmers for life!

Peace....

Thanks a lot man. We've accomplished amazing success in a very short period of time, and I'm sure we'll only grow in time. You should kick up a thread in the introductions forum and introduce yourself to everyone else. The majority of users don't frequent this forum as often as the lounge.

But let me be the first to welcome you to United. Stick around and you'll see that there's a lot more to this site than is said. You have to experience it to understand.
