CBUB Updated Rating System 05/2020

Recommended Posts

CBUB Updated Rating System


Old System: Grade Point Average. A weighted average between 0 and 4.0.

New System: 5 Stars rating system.   A weighted average between 0 and 5.0.


Calculation Differences between the Old System and the New System:

The old GPA system had a number of arcane calculations in it.

For example, not being able to advance in Rank until producing a certain number of Matches.  Also, buying off Low Scores to adjust your FPA upwards.

The GPA system compressed Five possible ratings (A, B, C, D, F) between a number spread 0 to 4.0. 

The Stars system compresses Five possible ratings (in Stars) between a number spread 0 to 5.0.


 Why move to a Stars System?

These are all my reasons.  I understand some people may prefer the Old system.

1. The Forum has a Stars Rating system on topics built right into it.  This aligns perfectly with our use case.

2. A GPA is unwelcoming. New members join and discover they are rated 'F'.  That is not helpful as it has a negative association with School.

3. Removing all the Arcane bullshit that built up over the years and going with a flat weighted average.

4. Stars lends itself to more graphical flourishes on a website.


What's going to change?

Your Weighted Average will be recalculated from the total of your ratings given by members.  All of them.  Including ones that had previously been 'Bought Off'.

This is the New, Honest score you have achieved over your CBUB Lifetime.

The Buy Off functionality is being removed.

All the old arcane rules about progression will be removed.

And, in the future, your Star Rating may enable Perks and such.
