Ratings - Bug Reports Discussions on Obsidian Portal Community Forums
edited November 2009
The "user ratings" (bottom right corner) of items (and campaigns and characters) is displayed wrongly.
For the Bottomless Flask http://www.obsidianportal.com/item/46313 it says (in the bottom right corner) that I (Lokal_Profil) awarded it 5 stars. but when going to my ratings page http://www.obsidianportal.com/profile/Lokal_Profil/ratings it (correctly) says 4 stars. The same thing applies to e.g. Borbarad http://www.obsidianportal.com/profile/Borbarad/ratings who gave it 3 stars but is down as giving it (almost 4). There are also some users which seem to have given it a non-integer number of stars.
I don't know if this is a purely graphical error or if the erroneous ratings are used for calculating the averages.
On a side note when looking at a users ratings page it would be nice if characters and items weren't treated as identical i.e. every character is down as an item and a character (and the same for items).
Oh, the ratings. How we love and hate them. I'll give you our standard 'we're working on it!' answer ;)
Yeah, we've been discussing different options for the ratings. We're working on a couple of other critical items at the moment, but do plant to revisit ratings soon.
