Default Who rated an album list

The rating system is fun but due to how people rate ("5=I like") it isn't too useful (to me).

What about adding a simple list page with 'who rated this album'?
In my personal scale a 5 by "ff_fan69" won't count much as opposed to people with my tastes, and you could discover similar albums following their votes, etc.

One could access it with the little arrow next to the ratings (like the 'edit history'), for minimal changes in the UI or something simple like that.

(unless it's already there and I missed it...)

I agree. I'd like to see something like this implemented as well.

I won't argue on the above idea, it's probably good.

But i wonder why we actually can't see who rated an album in the album page itself ?
Was it meant to be anonymous?
You can actually check anyone's rating in their profile page..

A button on the album page itself showing all the voters would be nice (like the collection/wish list).
You could use the little arrow picture (like the edits page), or create a link on the "Rated x.xx by x people".

Great idea! This must happen!

Nothing was meant to be secret.

I want to make a ratings page for each album, that has the list of who rated the album along with it's rank (and popularity) and some other stats. I just have to figure out where it fits in with the other tasks, and do it.

Surely not everyone rates like this. I know that the ratings are heavily skewed for that reason, but I've only given out a handful of 5 ratings personally, and I try to rate things as fairly as possible. My ratings do tend towards a center of 3.5 or 4, but that's because I don't seek out things that I know I probably won't like.

I think it would be a good idea to allow people to see others' ratings, but they should also be allowed to hide them if they wish, like with a private album.

Wise fwom your gwave.

Maybe now it's a good time to reconsider this... no?

Nothing fancy really, just a plain list in the style of this.

You've only rated Vagrant Story?

This is still something I wanted us to have. I may be the one who ends up implementing it, but it would probably have to come after finishing the product stuff, and probably a couple of other things. Blah had also expressed some thoughts on an implementation. If he gets to it first, I'm sure it'll be a more integrated feature than what I would be able to do.

I've only rated Vagrant Story because it's the only OST worth doing so. Twice. Hah!


Really, I'm just lazy. I figured I'd wait until this feature was implemented before going over the albums, but.
Oh well. There goes another rated album.
