newbtophp Posted August 25, 2010 Share Posted August 25, 2010 Hey!, Just looking for some advice on developing a voting/rating algorithm. What is the most effective way to develop this? Right now, I am using minimalistic/very simple algorithm, I have two columns: number_of_votes and total_vote, and the score = number_of_votes/total_vote Problem is, it can be easily skewed if their are a low number of votes (1 vote of 5 will boost the score to 5). PS: They can vote from 1-5 (the max the score can be is 5) Thanks guys! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
