Let's face it, the single most recurring theme in this forum is about ratings. Many of the recent changes to the site where also aimed toward a reduction of the average of all daily ratings toward the statistical expected -but sociologically utopic- value of 4. In the aftermath of the change I remember some statistics presenting that some movement toward a lower overall average had happened. I understand one of the ideas behind this aim to a lower average was a more fair access to the TRP gallery, and here follows my proposal. To calculate the score for the TRP, one could normalise the rating to the rater average. If my rating average is 6 (and there are many such cases in mate-rater circles, I suppose) and I give someone a 6, the system will count it as a 4 for the calculation of the TRP. If my rating average is a 4 (and therefore I receive abusive e-mails as the norm) then my 7 will be counted as a 7. Isn't this something that everybody does, to check the rating we think we got from Joe Photographer against his average? There are advantages in normalising to the median and to the mode as well, since these can be, and are, different in case of flat distributions with 7/7 peaks... Thanks for letting me spend my two CHF cents. p.s. I still think a histogram would be great instead of the numbers for the distribution of the ratings... but I understand this would be either a slowing-down effect to the page generation, or a tedious daily task.
