"We can not have unreliable "Best Rated" content lists, when all a member has to do is upload the content, rate HIS / HER OWN CONTENT" 5 stars and instantly hit the number one spot of the chart. Rating algorhythm have to reflect the true ratings made by THE OTHER USERS at the site, not the content owner himself / herself".
The issue and campaign are directed at any upcomming Ning platform roadmap, as a huge wish!CASE:
I have a huge issue here, been running a music community, on the Ning platform for about a year now. We are all about "Best Rated" tracks
, rated by all od
the members.Now, there is a HUGE problem with the rating system of Ning, since members are able to
rate their own content maximum stars.
It's very important
for me to make it clear, that this issue is turning into an
administration hell, to keep my "Best Rated" list reliable, since most
of my members have noticed this "backdoor", to get their tracks on top
of my "Best Rated" music list.
I need this "backdoor" to be closed, Ning
help has nothing for me to solve this, but come on... It makes no sence
that members are able to top rate themself like this, because of no
block to "self rating". Imagine if you had this gab on ex. YouTube...
it's has to be common sence that rating has to be blocked, if you
attempt to rate your own tracks 5 stars.
You have no
reliable "Best Rated" content, with the backdoor wide open like this and you will have to rate against your own members to keep an reliable list refelcting the true ratings.
Thank you for reading.
