Secret to getting your adj review to match

Posted on: January 19, 2008 2:25 pm
 

If you are wanting to get your adjusted review to match your actual review. I have it.  It may take a while but if you put the time in you can do it.

I have heard some people say that it is based on your level. Meaning that if you are a Superstar and rate someone a five then his adjusted review goes lower, while a rookie who rates a 5 gets and ajusted review of 5.  Well it only appears that way.  What happens is the more you rate 5's and Zeros the more your adjusted review drops.  A rookie has had less time to rate therefore he is actually trusted more.  As most of us do, we rate our friends high regardless of what they say.  If you are a superstar, then you probbaly have been doing this for a while and therefore the less you are trusted. 

How you get this fixed?  Well you don't want to start rating your friends lower, so you need to go to sites of the opposite teams or game threads which have a lot of posts and rate them in between 1 and 5.  On your own site if you have some butthead, don't rate them a 0.  Find out what you lowest rating you can give that has an adjustment of 0.  It is the same thing as rating someone a zero, but it helps you get a higher rating.   

If you have been doing this awile it will take longer to fix.  There is an overnight process that applies your day's ratings and adjusts your adjustment for the next day.  So if you rate 1000 midlevel ratings today you won't see anything bump until tomorrow.  I have not gotten mine all the way to have a 5 equal a 5 yet, but I went from have a 5 adjusted to a 2, to now having a 5 adjusted to a 3.5.  You can still rate your buddies 5's just make sure you have an equal amount of midlevel stuff to conteract it. It is also kind of funny rating some idiot a 2 yet they still get a zero.  Try it out and let me know how it goes.

bsp;  Great analysis of CBS's asinine and flawed ratings system.  Most of the members on this board are not tweens We don't need Daddy CBS adjusting our ratings.  If I want to give someone 5 stars, then I should be able to give them 5 stars.  My 5 stars are worth 2.5 (????).   According to your great observation I will now have to give out 1s (REAL FAIR THERE) to make my ratings equal again.  I guess I better start finding some trolls and jerks to give out some ones to.  Well, baseball season is just around the corner so I am sure the trolls will come out of the woodwrk again.

I just think it's sad when we have to try an figure out how to beat the system.  It seems like CBS could find a way that everyone could rate what the really believe, without penalty.  I know they try to make it better, hence the new rating system, but it ain't there yet!  Keep tinkering guys.

If you want an example check this guy out.  He apparently only gives out 1's and he has done this so many times that his zero's are now adjusted to ones and his ones are adjusted to twos.  If you look when he first started they matched up.  Now I wouldn't recommend giving everybody a bunch of 1's, but it is an example.  Here it is. 

By the way, I don't mean to offend anyone with a bunch of threes but I am trying to fix this.  If I can beat the CBS Sportsline system then I will.
