Here is some details about how we calculate the average rating of an album and the rank of an album.
  • Average rating: The classic calculation of the average but more weight is affected to the rating of collaborators and to rating with reviews.
    - Rating only by members: Weight = 1
    - Review by members : Weight = 5
    - Rating or review by collaborators : Weight = 10

  • to create a variable every query "QWR" (AKA: Query Weighted Rating) use for ordering.
