Red, sure, change your pic whenever you want. That's why people's votes can be modified. For example if someone adds a new spoiler to their car and it looks awesome, people can change their old vote from a 7 to an 8.

I just added the 6-10 (only 9 now, but 10 max) as normal text below the top 5 on the side navigation. Do you guys think that's a good idea, or what? When I get home, I can make images for 6-10 also if you think that'd look better. Basically, how do you think the right sidebar should look?

I think 1-5 is good like they are and then 6-10 smaller is good too.

I was screwing with the thing and like every time the page would refresh each 6-10 ranking would move to the bottom i was liek what the hell?

Haha, that was probably when I was messing with it.

e90jimmy brought up a good point.... "OK, I may be a big Geek, but if someone has just one vote that is a TEN, then they win. Right? "

We need to develop an algorithm that balances the average ranking with the number of votes. Anyone have an idea for how it could work? Is there a better way than just the average times the number of votes... and compare all those big numbers? That wouldn't be too effective because if you have 12 votes of "3" and 4 votes of "8".... the rated "3" car would be above the "rated" 8 car. If a lot of people vote it horrible, it can actually bypass cars that less people vote amazing.

Someone else have any ideas for how the internal math could work?

maybe to make it easier to vote, make a wider range of #'s? like 1-20? cuz i may not be crazy about someone's car, but giving them a 3 makes it sound like i hate it. i dunno. or maybe 1/2 values. but anyways, i LOVE it no matter what, c'mon people, put your cars on!

one thing i've noticed, is that from the main page, the sidebar will take you to the "rate my car" page", while clicking on the same link in the header displays "under construction"
