How ratings works?
Maybe these days you have realized that when you are looking at some domain description it appears an star rating in the title bar.
This rating system works as follows :
- If you are not logged in, you just can see the current rating
- If you are logged, you can rate the domain as you please. (From 0 if it’s very bad or 100 if you consider it a very good domain)
The need to be logged in order to give your rating to a certain domain is due to the fact that your rating can be modified. One user can rate ONLY ONCE a domain, if you change the rating value it means that you have changed your mind about the domain (if the domain is not working you can give a bad rating and if in a few days it works and you like it, you can change your rating as the domain or its content changes).
Well, I’ve just rated my domain with a 100 and it shows 52% instead of 100%, is it a bug?
NO, it is not a bug. The global rating is calculated counting on the number of votes the domain has. This is because if you had hundreds of ratings giving you a 100 and only one giving you a 90 the mean would be less than 100, and if a new domain, just rated once, is rated with 100 it would have a better rating than your domain.
As much ratings you have, your global rating will become more exact.
