Topic: New Feature - Rating

There is now a Rating (displayed with stars) for every show in here.

For now it's available on the search page, and on the show page.

It's not a vote based thing, but a result from what users have in their watchlists. Especially - users that are being active in the last month.

It's a dynamic thing, so the ratings will change depending on what users keep in their watchlists.

Please play around with it a bit and tell me if it scored the shows properly smile

I think it's pretty good looking for now.

Re: New Feature - Rating

Ah, nice idea!
But, not to be the picky one but the stars are a little large to the rest of the design... A bit fuzzy.

Great feature though! Nice not having a vote system as that always gets misused anyways. Good thinkin!

And yeah, love the site!

Nice idea, however..  I'm sure like me, most of us have alot of almost bad shows in our watchlist just to fill up some time.  so clearlythe wathlist rating reall wont help anyone.  You need to implement a true personal rating system.  Yeah I know, more databe info tongue

Re: New Feature - Rating

Hi it is a nice idea but it doesn't work. The rating is based on how populair something is and not how good the show is. I see allot of shows in the list and they only got 1 or 2 stars and those shows are really good. For people that have not seen a low rated show and do not know if it is good they may get turned off because they think its bad. But that would be falsh.

Anyway I think you can better change the word "rating" into Populair. Then it would be accurate.

And add a rating system like BlackHood said with personal rating. Everybody can put in how many stars they think the show is worth.

Re: New Feature - Rating

I've decided to use TV.com's shows ratings for "Rating" and the
current thing for "Hotness".
I think that would be the most fair thing to do, because
we don't have as huge user database as tv.com, and I can't
MAKE the users vote if I implement a voting system, so I think that
the solution above will be the most accurate one for now.

Re: New Feature - Rating

i still think an optional 'one to watch' from the user would be a cool feature.... coz tv.com has a load of people.... from a wide range of backgrounds who are all using a 'mainstream' website....

this is a specialist website with a select few users... and it would be nice to see what fellow users recommend..... rather than some 8 year kid who has crush on whoever (no offense to any 8 year old kids here wink )

also..... the browse page needs a couple more columns.... ie. 'hotness' and 'combined score'

the reason for a combined score is coz a LOAD of shows which haven't been released are topping the charts of tv.com... (waterfront, standoff, friday night lights... etc)

not sure how best to combine the scores... but i think it is needed....

sorry i keep posting stuff for you to do.... you are doing a fantastic job as it is... and i kno this is only a hobby for ya... just 'trying' to be helpful smile
