Should we remove visible percentage scores?
Yes.
No.
Unsure.
VOTE

Replace the current percentage scores with this:



It's already the system of measurement at MobaFire's HoN sister-site, and I think it would lessen the QQ about "OH MY GOD MY GUIDE DROPPED BY 5% BECAUSE OF TWO DOWNVOTES!". I also think the visual representation is far more aesthetically pleasing than numbers.

So who would measure the guide quality? Moba users?
That doesn't really seem very fair if you ask me. What if the guide is actually "great quality" but it's down voted allot. That is, troll voted. By great quality i mean, the build is good, the guide looks good and it's up to date.

I find it to be correct, to be honest. I'm satisfied with the percentage.

+rep me and you'll get good karma, wich means you won't be reincarnated into a rock! Isn't that awesome?

But yes this idea has been discussed more than Pam Anderson's tits in a plastic surgeons office.

lol, it works on exactly the same system. Instead of showing 95% it'll show all 5 bars coloured in. People still get the same votes, the same downvotes, the same trolling, but instead of people QQing that their guide was downvoted 1% by a trollvoter with multiple accounts, they won't *know*.

That was my reasoning.

I like the current rating system tbh.

We originally tried the bars on new sites for that very reason, to try and reduce people's concerns and conflicts over scores. However in the end we felt that authors, as much as it bothers them at times, would rather have the extra information. The reality is that competition is one of the reasons people love writing guides, so our concern is that obfuscating scores in this way may actually reduce the fun for many, even if the rankings are unaffected.

That being said, would love to see some more votes on this poll. Maybe we're wrong and it would be fine :)
