Yep. If you're not logged in when you try to rate, it'll give an error message asking you to login before you can rate.

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?
Bump for math help and ideas.

Komodo, How about, only rating cars with more than say 12 votes.

Yea we need to develope some thing that will balance the # of Votes with overall rating.

If we dont we wont truly know who's car is liked the most, because some new guy could come on get 2 or 3 10 votes and be at the top.....

Rating cars with a certain number of votes would work too

Yep, works great: http://unitedbimmer.com/ratemycar.php?u=177

Other than a minimum number of votes before it a car gets ranked, how else can we do it? There has to be some kind of equation, like (average rating / number of votes)^2 or something. lol

Not sure about the equation there, but how about listing the number of votes one has recv'd to date? I wish you could see who voted when you pull up your stats section. Someone keeps throwing out 1's just to inflate their own car. c'mon Nobody really deserves a 1..

Score is:

AverageScore*NaturalLog(CountofScores)

9,9,8,10,9,10,7,8 = 18.19
10,10,10=10.9
10=0

I don't really understand people giving 1s either... All the cars obviously are well... nice and shiney -- as such at least a 2 is deserved...
