The rating algorithm of the OGPToolbox is a work in progress in a very early state. Help us improve it!
The rating of the cards (tools, use cases, organizations) is currently computed in the
process-actions script of the API. Look for
In theory, each authenticated user can give a rating (-1, 0 or +1) to a card, but currently only the card’s creator gives a +1 rating. Other users can’t vote)
The ratings are summed in ratingSum and counted in ratingCount.
the cards with more than 5 properties have their ratingSum multiplied by up to 2, while those with less than 5 properties have their ratingSum multiplied by a number less than 1. This is done using the
arctangent function whose curve is:
The real formula is:
arctan(number_of_properties / 5) * 4 / π
If card contains a logo or a screenshot, its ratingSum is multiplied by 10.
if no reference is made to the card, its score is divided by 2, otherwise it is multiplied by the number of references.
If the card contains a “location” property and this property is an array, the rating is multiplied by the size of the array.
The rating of the arguments of the debate are added to the tool’s rating.
