I'm not really sure if this is a bug or just something with the new weight system, but it doesn't make any sense: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/album/tarot/the-spell-of-iron

How can an album with three 5 star ratings and 1 4.5 star rating equal a 4.39?

Yeah that's an odd one. I'll message Max to say that something still isn't quite right.

It's a weighted average, rather than an ordinary one. But like you, fucked if I know!

Weighted average only applies to how many extra ratings reviews counts for. This has none and the average is lower than the lowest rating. That is mathematically impossible. It should be 4.88.

Max has fixed this. The issue was the average was taking into account draft review ratings too!

Wow, that's weird, though makes more sense than what I was first thinking. At first I thought that maybe the 4.39 was the QWR and it was showing that instead of the actual rating. Wacko

Anyway, good to see it fixed so quickly!

When you submit a draft review, you have to submit it with a draft rating. From what I gather with what happened here, the draft rating/review is basically there, but it won't show up until it's published.
