Photo contest scoring explained
03 Jul, 07 - 2 Comments.
There are a few possible ways to rank a contest. I've tried to work out a formula that accurately determines the most popular photographs.
Methods that don't work:
The highest average score - doesn't work. A single vote of "10" shouldn't beat 100 votes of "9".
The highest total score - doesn't work. I don't think 500 votes of "5" (total: 2500) should beat 200 votes of "10" (total: 2000).
The current formula to determine winners is:
(Average Score) x (Total Score)
... so 750 votes of "7" will beat 1000 votes of "5" etc.
This formula is just a starting point, open to refinement once we have more contestants and votes.
