App rating

#1 Post by Andrew Lee » Sun Jul 01, 2007 5:21 am

I have implemented a rating system for apps ("popularity score") in the database, as well as the ability to sort by popularity in the search results.

This module is actually an extension of the current system used to track and generate the "Popular titles" table you see in the sidebar.

Currently, the popularity score for each app is affected by user activity eg. visiting the website, or hitting the download link.

The new "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" functions merely provide another way for you to moderate the popularity score for each app directly.

I have a feature request for apps rating, that I think could be an useful improvement to know software popularity: now if I click on the second popularity value, it is shown the list of registered users that like it. Could be good to click also the first popularity value, to see a statistics page of the software where is reported a sort of "history" of popularity, for example:

----------------------------------
This is the report of popularity statistics of [software name]:
1 day ago: 2545
1 week ago: 2453
1 month ago: 2108
2 months ago: 1893
3 months ago: 1340
6 months ago: 1022
1 year ago: 504
----------------------------------

Not many values, but only to have an idea of software popularity (also to know if a software with elevate score is still popular or not, given that it could be have many points but progressively lose them in the last period).

Goes into my todo list.

The database structure needs to be changed in order to implement this, 'cos at the moment, the time information is not kept due to the amount of data. Some form of aggregation needs to be performed at the front because it's just not practical to keep all the time info.
