Rating abuse?

Hi,

The rating for an article of mine has suspicously dropped from 10 to 7.

Up until yesterday (I think), my lesson http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/less...s_pa rt_2.html was rated as 10, with 49 likes.

Since then, [IMG]two [/IMG]comments have arrived.

One stated "great post, but explain ...".

The other, from http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/juan2109/, just contains the message "f", which presumably means "failure". This guy must have voted as negatively as possible, and this had reduced the article rating to 7.

I've got no problem with negative feedback (very useful), but I am very surprised that 1 person's vote in a group of 50 people influences the rating score by 30%??

Where I'm suspicious is that juan2109's profile is empty. No info. No contributions. Nothing.

If all is above board, then the rating algorithm seems broken.

Please delete juan2109's comment from my article, and readjust score.

cheers, Jerry

Hey Jerry - I'm not a mod so I can't delete the guy's useless comment or anything, but I may be able to tell you why you are at a 7. When I look at your article, it only shows that you have two votes. So one person voted you a 10 and the other guy voted you lower for an average of 7. I don't think likes have anything to do with this score. I'm going to vote for your article and see if the score changes.

Here is what I see now: http://i.imgur.com/RvBk6Tp.png

*edit* Yep, that's what it was. You only had two votes. Mine was #3. See here
