What are the patron ratings going to be based on?

Whatever they like (same categories if thats what you meant). The review panel ratings box will be there for people seeking more standardized reviews from more experienced reviewers. However, I don’t think letting patrons rate freely will damage ratings… the old directory had this and was relatively accurate. With separate review panel ratings I don’t think patrons will be as inclined to give movies bad ratings in order to “average things out” to get the movie the rating they want.

I asked Ladon this, but I neglected to ask you:

Do you have a plan or ideas to encourage / reward members for rating films?

As you stated, more ratings = greater accuracy, so encouraging members (specifically patrons) to rate films is fairly high on the agenda for the MoF Ratings.

(I’m asking harder questions of those running for Film Ratings since I’ll be working closely with that minister since our ministries are tied together.)

I would ask to have a sticky thread in P&R that tells people how to rate movies and encourages people to rate movies.

Another idea I have been kicking around is giving patrons another rank based off the number of ratings. e.g. 50 ratings = bronze rater 100=silver rater 250= gold rater ect… Please let me know what you think of that because I am on the fence.

As stated elsewhere, having a numerical representation of effort (such as postcounts) encourages more of said efforts.

Having something on the forum that basically says “this is how many films I’ve rated” sounds good in theory, but how would it be implemented?

The ‘simple’ way would be for people to add it to their info bar or sig. If several people do it, it’ll catch on for a while until people lose interest.

Having a permanent coded display (such as replacing the join date) would be fine, but that would put more work on the shoulders of the code monkeys, plus take up more server resources…

Only someone familiar with PHPBB could answer that and that isn’t me. If it is really a waste of resources then I could ask for a top raters list like Ladon.

We already have film rating stats in the control panel of patrons and reviewers, so it would be nothing but a copy & paste job for the code monkeys.
