For this cool wall and here on in I intend to calculate the outcome as follows.
Will take an arithemtic mean using the following calculation
Result = ((Number of Cool votes x 1)+(Number of OK votes x2)+(Number of Uncool votes x 3)) / Number of votes
The result will be rounded down to 0 decimal places, where
This is instead of taking the mode as per the previous cool wall contests.
So for the current cool wall the GT would be...
((54 x 1) + (35 x 2) + (27 x 3)) / 116 = 1.76 which rounds to 2Therefore GT would be OK
If anyone sees a flaw in this or has a convincing arguement to calculate it another way please let me know
In fact perhaps it would be more valid for future cool walls to remove ok altogether and vote on whether the item was
very uncool / uber lame
At least then everything wouldn't just be 'ok'. Or am I putting too much though into this
That would work very well! Excluding "ok" would keep "ok" from becoming a problem, and all of us from looking like a drab "ok" bunch...how about:
that would go with the majority of the sites sentiment that many things about retrobiking is cool, with few things being über cool, and even fewer things being über lame.
