Audio Portal Improvment Idea
I'm sure that someone else has already said this at some point, but the idea came to me on its own so what the heck here it goes...
My idea was in order to make voting more more fair and unbiased, the score of what ever is being voted on, not be displayed to the voter until voted on.
Let me explain, when someone comes along and sees a submission and says "Hmm, this looks interesting, I'll click on it..." Then when they get to the submission, in order to see the score of the submission they must then vote on it themselves. Thus they cannot just look at the score and say "the score is to high, lets move it down so this other one over here is above it."
Ways it could be setup:
1.) Display after only the first time the submission is voted on, continue display from there.
2.) Display after every time the submission is voted on, then close up after time change (when the site recycle every night). <-- Best Method
3.) Display after voted on daily, close off after the member leaves the page.
People can only give scores based on their perceptions of the entry, and not someone else's.
Zero bombing less present, because they must then listen to the submission in order to be able judge it in anyway, even if they don't want to it fairly.
This idea could be expanded to the and other portals on the site (Flash Portal, Art Portal, Ect.)
A hassle for the servers. The cache of everyone going in and out of the site would be that much bigger.
Ratings would have to be removed from display in the genre sections.
Ratings would have to be removed from display from unregister users or not logged in users.
Ratings would have to be removed from display in other places like accounts and such.
Now you can discus if this is a good idea or not and tell me all the ways that it wouldn't work. ^_^
