online apartment ratings

about that website apartment ratings... it is a place where people who live in renatal communities can let the internet know what they think about the apartment community and all that goes into it, management, maintenance, grounds, safety, parking, and so on... there are major flaws to the rating system on the site... they allow anonymous ratings, which can be one person repeatedly rating a place poorly just because they have a bone to pick - or even a competitor rating other communities in the same neighborhood poorly and rating their own property highly... it is too simple to do to think it is not done for the benefit to the profit it can bring... so i offered this suggestion to the site:

Change the ratings system to three different ratings, Separate "Anonymous Ratings" from "Raters who will not allow contact" from "Raters who will allow contact" The third rating will likely be a lot more credible. You can create three levels of Users "Anonymous Users" and "Hidden Users" and "Verified Users" if you allow those users who wish to verify their address with you to do so. That last group will be add legitimacy and credibility to your site.

we shall see if they take the suggestion, and their ratings, seriously...

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)
