    Plus, not all browsers support javascript and some people have it disabled.

    I’ve made sure to make this (and mostly any javascript I write) cross-browser friendly.

    In this particular case (as well as with the control panel) if you don’t have javascript enabled, nothing changes in terms of basic functionality.

    I like the “seperate ratings for review panel members” idea; I don’t like the “absolute freedom for ratings” idea.

    Q: How will your system ensure that ratings are meaningful?

    Specifically, if a user glances at the ratings, will they be able to say “this film is better than that other film?”

    “An Old Ore” wrote: I’m kinda partial to the rubric simply on the basis that it gives everyone a general idea as to how the ratings will be interpreted.

    Specific Example: If there is a film with no music, and the possible rating for music is a non-rubric 0 to 10, how would you resolve that?

    A: Giving a rating of 5?
    B: Giving a rating of 0?
    C: Giving no rating? (Null value)
    D: Other?

    The current system allows a rater to confidently give a rating, knowing that they are not penalizing a film for not having a specific element. how would your system work?

    Well, the review panel would still have a rubric of sorts, I probably would keep Ladon’s for continuity.

    But for patrons I would probably add a line of text advising (rough, not good english) “if no elements of a component are present give a 0″. But at the same time if someone thinks that no music adds to the suspense then I would tolerate positive ratings. It is possible to have horrific music that gives headaches; why should such music get a higher rating then a movie that doesn’t give anything at all?

    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…
