hey guys,

probably an easy question, but why do the geek ratings differ from another. for example:

WARGAMES OVERVIEW


http://boardgamegeek.com/wargames/browse/boardgame

For example look at Paths of Glory or Here I stand.
They are like 0.5 more than when you look at them on Top 100


And i'm not talking about average rating.

cheers

Re: Games with different ranks on different charts [ANSWERED]:

To prevent a game with a single 10 from rising to the top of the charts, each game gets a number of "dummy" votes with a value of 5.5 added when calculating the "geek rating", on which the rank is based.

The number of votes added depend on the total number of votes cast. Since there are less votes cast in a subdomain (for example, all abstract games have a low number of votes), less dummy votes are used to calculate the subdomain ranking.
