So I'm a sucker for numbers and rankings (probably to an unhealthy degree) and was completely enamored by Jack's spreadsheet on the Warp ( http://redamedia.com/warp/cerank.php ) - So much so that I decided to use my arguably excessive free time to compile an average rating out of the votes for the first 3 sets, and thought it could be nice to share.

There may be a few errors for I, in an act of sheer brilliance, decided to do it all by hand. So here we go

Once again, there may be a few errors in there but I trust this could somewhat represent an idea of where those people stand with the aliens. It goes without saying that this should not be taken as law by any means! I myself disagree heavily with some of them.

But oh well. Thought it could be interesting.

Oh, shoot. I lost most of my formatting. Forgive me for the lack of proper indentation, everybody

No, I said "oh, brother," not "go hover."

Your method of summarizing makes the worst possible score 20%. If 1 million voters all gave an alien a 1 for "worst," I would expect this to get a summary score of 0%, not 20%. This is because you've basically used a y-intercept of 1 instead of 0.

If you agree, you can adjust this by simply subtracting 1 from the rank values (removing the y-intercept bias and setting worst = 0, best = 4) and then multiplying your weighted total by 25 instead of 20. Or, if you don't want to re-crunch everything, you can just apply a post adjustment:

new score = ((old score / 20) - 1 ) * 25

which is equivalent to

new score = 1.25 * old score - 25

For example, Locust would go from 28.4 to 10.5, a better representation of the votes. And any score from 0 to 100 would be possible (as it stands, you only allow scores from 20 to 100).

This was meant more as a method of ranking the aliens among themselves than an accurate grading I suppose, but yes, maybe I'll do that!
