What happens to tiers if a user only rates movies he likes?

Wondering how Criticker works, or have a question that doesn't seem to fit under requests or bugs?

What happens to tiers if a user only rates movies he likes?

Postby MaxD » Sun Nov 19, 2017 2:57 am

If I only rate my most favourite movies on this site and only give out scores like 80 and above, will it totally mess up the tier system? (lowest 10% of movies will still be placed in tier 1 if I understood correctly).

So to use the site to its full value, do I need to rate an equal amount of (in my opinion) good, average and bad movies, i order to get an even distribution and let the algorithms work at their maximum potential?

Yes, basically you've understood it right. Tiers are just percentile groups. Regardless of the score, the lowest 10% of your ratings will be in Tier 1.

Criticker does work best for those with a wide variety of rankings.
