    I see. In that case, maybe an idea I could implement would be an option where you could see who rated it, but the rater would have the option of showing their ratings or keeping them private. That way, the rater himself can decide instead of having a rule about it. It’s all about personal preference.

    Patrons system is better then your approval system, people would pass the test then go on to give crappy ratings. People that pay 3 dollars are probably mature enough to rate films decently most of the time.

    After reading in Ladon’s discussion thread on ratings, I realized that counting each rater’s votes would require Z to code more, so I no longer support that option.

    Which means, that, since basically my whole logic was based on that, I’m going to re-evaluate the options and think a bit more.

    Hmm…

    brianfast, I really do think there are a lot of people out there who wouldn’t give bad ratings. Ones who did would be immediately removed from the usergroup.

    I really don’t like the idea of ‘who rated what’, because even if you avoid the obviously negative aspects, suddenly it becomes a popularity contest. Instead of looking at recent films, people might just start looking at ‘Recent films given a high rating by Rev’ or something similar. In the end, it has to remain an anonymous poll or the statistics will be useless.

    I don’t understand how it would/could be determined that a rating is “bad”.

    Saul, I believe he means a malicious entry to the ratings of a film with the intent of dramatically changing the outcome of the averaging calculations in order to cast a negative image on the film with the resulting negative rating. Or maybe he meant they weren’t good, I’m not sure.

    I guess, but what’s wrong with that? What if you like films that were given high ratings by Rev?

    On that point, I agree with Dragoon. I tend to like A.O. Scott’s movie preferences, and I’m more inclined to see a film if he liked it. And if I see a movie ad, and the only positive comment is from Jeffrey Lyons, I will make sure I don’t see that movie, because I vehemently disagree with nearly all his reviews.

    But the bad blood between members could be an issue. And other than telling immature brickfilmers to get over a supposedly “bad” rating, I’m not sure how that could be solved.

    Yes, but what about the films that Rev didn’t rate? It would eventually be like the Digg community, where people only actually see stories that are posted by a handful of people.
