New feature: Metascore

A new feature for the Linux Game Database was just been deployed!
Every registered user can submit links to reviews and ratings of games. From all the submitted ratings a Metascore Metarating will be calculated and shown along with the already implemented user rating. On the right side of every game page is a link to submit the rating.

To lighten the burden of the server the metascores metaratings will be stored in the database and only visible after the site cache has been cleared (approximately every 4 hours).

The next weeks are for testing and streamlining the complex system, specially the usability still needs work. Hoping for lots of ratings and feedback!

Cheers,

oh, is a caching problem, i fixed it manually now, but gonna look into it for automatic updates.

Are you asking why they have so many 100 ratings? i can only answer for the first site. Victory games only rate 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 out of 5 stars, so you will only have 100, 80, 60, 40 or 20 ratings.
abandonia reviewers just have different criteria than others i guess ;)
