Default Averages in Showthread list displaying users rating NOT overall average

Averages in Showthread list displaying users rating NOT overall average

i.e.

Author votes 8.5 so his average shows as 85%

Another user replies with 3.0 rating - his average shows 30%

it is not displaying the overall average on showthread (although forumdisplay average rating is correct)

using vb 3.6.4 and GARS 2.1.4

Thanks in advance

You would need to set the types option to Include the authors rating as a member rating. By default they are seperate. Afterward, rebuild the ratings.

HTHs!

It was set like this anyway - it has made no difference at all.

In every single review the average shows as the users actual vote NOT the average.

Thank you for replying.

Im also finding that reviews are not adding up on main listings (forumdisplay) correctly

good example is little miss sunshine review

3 reviews by members and author = 7.5 , 9.0 and 7.5

total on forum display shows Author Rating 75% (correct of course) and member rating as 40% ???

Thanks for your help

if you need any other kind of access to the forum send me a PM

another exampl is CRANK

rated by 4 members all over 80%

average in forumdisplay shows as 34% and each average inside the thread (showthread) shows the rating given by the user NOT the overall average

pretty mixed up :/

my guess is is that its working out the average % out of 5 as opposed to 10 (34% should be 68%) - or something along those lines ?

my users love this and our forum is an excellent way to show off your mod to potential customers as there are now over 566 Moview Reviews (we are half waythrough updating all the movieposters)

it really is a fantastic mod - just need these bits working correctly

thanks

Can you use the ratings editor (admincp->gars->tools). I think you will find that other members rated, but didnt leave a response (hence the misrating).

Make sure that the alpha/number bug gets put into the tracker so I can stay on top of it.

HTHs
