TrueAchievement said:Here's how it's currently calculated:

1. For every session you are in, you get a score from -1 to +1.

2. Each vote you get in each session is divided by the number of people that gave feedback.

So, if it's a 3 person session and the other 2 give you +ve feedback you get a score of 1 for that session.

If one gives you +ve and one neutral you get a score of 0.5.

if both give you -ve you get a score of -1.

etc etc

3. We add up your scores for all the sessions that you have at least one bit of feedback from, and then divide the total sessions with feedback by that amount.

So, in

ImaginaryRuins's case, he has 2 sessions where he has a score of +1 and one session where he has a score of -1.

That makes a score of +1 out of 3 and a feedback score of 33%.

That may sound harsh, but I think you need to reflect that this was a negative session and not merely a neutral session.

Bear in mind that with just 2 more +ve sessions he would move up to 60%, and 5 more it would be 80%.

If people think this is totally unfair then feel free to suggest a change and I'll consider it.

Thanks :)

Hopefully that clears up the confusion (except for the 100% bug).

I believe what is confusing many people is what negative means, so I do have a suggestion for a change.

Taking the most basic example of a person who has been in one session with one other person, and the score others expect to see:

1 positive = we all agree that should be +100%.

1 neutral = under the current system that is 0%, but many of the responses suggest that should also be +100%. I say to those people what is the point in having a neutral feedback option if it is the same as positive.

1 negative = under the current system that is -100%, but many people struggle with the mathematical concept of a negative number (half an apple is fine, but how can someone have -1 apples, brain explodes). Going from the responses, getting a negative is not getting a positive, so 0%.

My suggestion is to keep neutral, but change the range from (-100% to +100%) to (0% to 100%). This should stop brains from exploding.

Mathematically that is done by adding 100% and dividing by 2.

1 positive = +100% + 100% = 200% / 2 = 100%

1 neutral = 0% + 100% = 100% / 2 = 50%

1 negative = -100% + 100% = 0% / 2 = 0%

So 2 positive + 1 negative = +33% + 100% = 133% / 2 = 67%

2 positive + 1 neutral = +67% + 100% = 167% / 2 = 83%

Personally I have no problem with the concept of negative feedback giving negative numbers, but it appears many people see a person with +33% as bad when in reality it is a person with -90% that is of concern.

-90% + 100% = 10% / 2 = 5%

I think we would all agree that 5% would set off alarm bells, but under the current system you can have +5% from just getting positive and neutrals (since it is not a negative percentage).
