Where would you start? I would like to write my own as my first real project.

Start out by deciding the various attributes that you feel are important.

For example
    Material (wood or aluminium)
Give the attributes individual weightings according to importance. When users score the attributes, multiply the score by the weighting.

You will also have to take into account the different types of ladder (step ladder, extending ladder, roof ladder etc) and the tasks they are used for, so you will probably finish up with several diferent rankings.

Have fun :)

If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
