After seeing a jump "down" in the number of ratings my game received, but 5 new ratings were added, I sensed something was awry.
And right when I start a complaint, bgg goes down.maybe they can fix this too.
So, with a count of 120 ratings of a 7, I started counting 100 per page and got to 150 before I decided to check other games. the . ratings appear not to show when I click on the little graph, but after removing all filters, I was able to see 9 pages 100 each, with ratings on them, mostly filled with a rating, not just like a wishlist. for a game of 395 ratings, I should not be able to see 900+ filled with ratings.
So, what is this algorithm that is keeping near double the ratings from counting towards the ranking? It keeps the little guy down. I'm not sure if it is just the lack of . ratings, but I did not see that they counted in the little graph...even Rahdo's did not show. He has a point scale because he has sooo many games to rate.
So, who needs to look into this issue I hope sees this message. Anyone else see this? or care? I tend to keep an eye on my new comments and going down in numbers of ratings when I clearly see 5 more added didn't click.
