Approval Rating

Post by vivafruit » Sat Feb 21, 2004 6:54 pm

I've noticed that some approval rating scores in my profile are weirdly off. For instance, right now the approval rating for my review of Shingetsutan Tsukihime is 4.98, with 8 votes. This isn't mathematically possible, considering that each "yes" vote is +10 and each "no" vote is -10. The closest that you could get to that score would be two "no" votes and 6 "yes" votes, but then the approval rating would be 5.00. Are some people given bigger weight than others, or is this just some sort of glitchy math error?

just a math problem.
anidb's internal calculations only use two floating point digits atm. :P
