Of course, which is why we implimented an algorithm with logarithms to try and lessen the weight of "far out" votes... like 1's or 2's for a car with an average of 9.78.

The system isn't perfect, none of them are.... but I've listened to every suggestion and put as much thought as possible toward making it the best I can.

If you have any suggestions as to what I can do to improve it, I'd be more than happy to review and consider them though.

That's what I am saying that I think it is just about as good as it will get. You have a good system in place and seems to be fair. There are a lot of nice cars here too....

i think people also vote not only for the mods a car has but the quality and look of the pic presented. If the pic is all blurry and crap, there probably gonna revive a lower rating than someone who has a beautiful well laid out pic of there car that helps showcase its beauty.

I just got a 1 again too

Presentation has a lot to do with how much an image affects people.

I took a dozen pictures of my 840 at the Concours in Seattle last year and ended up selecting someone elses picture as showing best what I wanted others to see.

That shouldn't matter though, because almost everyone would give themselves a 10. haha
