Site Updates: New Review System

I have been lazy with getting reviews in because I don’t want to write them. But…I have an idea – an awesome idea. For now on, I’ll be collecting Emma Frost related comic reviews from various comic book sites and posting them here on EmmaFrostFiles.

The rating system will be based on a 5 star scale, which includes those .5′s in reviews. In essence, this can be thought of as a 10 star rating system. For example, a review with 2.5 out of 5 stars is essentially a review with 5 out of 10 stars.

Furthermore, a website with a 5 star rating system will be straightforwardly collected as x the amount of stars the website gave. However, for a website with a 10 star/point rating system, such as, a rating of – let’s say – 7 out of 10 stars will be collected as 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Conclusively, ratings will be scaled down (if applicable). They will also have to be rounded. If gives a comic a rating of 8.1 out of 10, that rating will be scaled down and rounded to 4. If they give an 8.5 out of 10, the rating will be, again, scaled and rounded to 4.5.

The average review calculates the average of the combined reviews…duh. This system is similar to and, except this time it’s Emma-related. :)

Now that we all get the point, I’ll start off with the Uncanny X-Men #505 reviews to show you how it actually works. Tell me if you like it and find it useful. Otherwise, I’ll stop wasting my time. :D
