The ones are back again. Two ones and two twos on mine in a fairly short span.

And I think that I found a picture of Delmarco as someones car entry.

I've had my time in the top 5 and was wondering how to remove my car from the list so someone else can move up?

Haha, no need to step down. If you have a nice car, people will rate you high and you will move up.

Congrats, haha.

And as for the ones, the system is developed in a way where it weighs out "far out" votes like that using a logarithmic algorithm. Basically if you have mostly 8's through 10's and you get a few 1's or 2's, it will weigh the 8s, 9s, and 10s heavier than the 1's and 2's. This is apparent by you getting a couple of low ratings, but still remaining number 3 in the rankings.

Well, something is not right with your system . . as stock as it is, mine can't possibly be #21 I take it no one is voting.

actually duduskey, its really bias sometimes, some people have m3s, and just b/c they arent active, they get a low rating, and this one dude has a sweeeet s/c 7, and i dont know what his rating is, but it should def. be in the top 10

komodo, what is the formula for the rating system? i remember it was in a thread and someone suggested it and you used it, but i dont remember the name of the thread or anything, can you tell me the formula?
