# What's up with the figuring on the "user rating?"

#### Viper GTS

##### Lifer
If I remember correctly, last time I checked I had 14 &quot;votes,&quot; my rating was at 4... I think the figuring is screwed up. 14 x 4 = 56, even if the next 5 people gave me a one that'd be 61 total points, divided by 19 votes = ~3.2. So I don't see how the 1 is possible. Something is wrong here.

Either that or people really, really hate me here.

Dis is wierd sh!t. Gave DAM a 10, went from 11 votes to 12, stayed put at 4...

Maybe they're weighted somehow funky?

according to my calculation i should have gone up atleast .5 of a point with your last rating. hmmm.

there might be something screwed up

before viper x/11 = 4 therefore x = 44 total points

after viper 54/12 = 4.5 ~= 5

Exactly the same results I came up with. I'm willing to attribute that one to rounding, since it may round down.

Zuni...

Here's your proof. Sorry to kill your rating, but what better way to experiment than on the code developer himself?

In some respects, it seems to be working. I gave one user who has 1 vote, and a rating of 1, 10 marks - afterwhich his rating was 5. There have been couple more examples, but I can't think of them off the top of my head.

Any idea what the problem here is Zuni?

As far as I can see its working fine. The way this works is that your total vote score is added up, then divided by the number of votes to produce an average. Its pretty simple.

We are going to reset it and keep an eye on it so everyone's rating will change.

Someone suggested last night that perhaps the value wasn't being multiplied before adding to the new vote, would that be possible? For instance if someone had a rating of &quot;8&quot; with 10 votes, you'd add 80 to the next vote and then divide by 11?

#### Jason Clark

Nope its being multiplied correctly.

Well, I'm sure we can fix that.

I'm pretty sure it's working now. Paulson was on 5 after 5 votes. I gave him a 10 and now he's on 6, which sounds right to me.

Whew....I couldn't figure out why my rating went to 0....

It appears to be working now. I saw a user with one vote of one, and I gave him a ten which bumped up his average to six (11 / 2 = 5.5 = 6).
