new member here (damn my friend for showing me this site), voting in my 1st challenge.
i'd like to see voting correlations after the challenge, i.e. the difference between my vote and the average for all the shots i voted on. i'm envisioning a simple interactive bar graph over -10, 10. this would show whether one is generally harsh or generous, and also would allow to examine outliers to see why there are differences.

does such a thing exist?

You have to do the maths yourself but your vote is always displayed when viewing the results. Also when you view the results there are little check boxes on the left hand side that you can click to show all results and to show results based on your vote

Plus if you look on your voting page on the top left you will see some stats. Your average vote received and your average vote given is up there. Now it seems from the previous studies that some members have done...the average score on this site overall is about 5.500. So compare that to your stats (which probably won't show till after the challenge ends) and that should give you an indication as to whether you are a harsh voter or not.

I think this would be an interesting chart or statistic or however it could best be displayed - to show just how far off the "popular vote" you are. I know that it's been mentioned a few times that voters should be penalized for being too far off the mark and I'm absolutely not in favor of that but it'd be an interesting stat.

thanks. i think it'd be much better if the computer did the work for me, rather than vice versa. less error-prone as well;) a graph would seem to provide a lot of intuitive information w/ little overhead.
