I decided to rate pins. I started rating "pins I own right now, a collection of pins I (heavily) used to play in my youth". Maybe I will rate "pins I do not (want to) own - but played at the time".
I have some questions:
"Ballot stuffer / troll voting": Do I "troll vote" when I (first) rate "my loved ones" ? (Must I do 50:50 rating of "pins I love and own" <-> "pins I used to play, but are not good enough to "want me to have it in my collection"" ?) See: https://pinside.com/pinball/help/how-to-rate-a-machine -> "Users that have ONLY ratings at the top or bottom ... will not receive an approved status" (?).
"Categories of EM-Pins" (?): At this moment "Kings and Queens, Gtb 1965" is on top, No-2 is "Rocket, Wms-59", "Lucky Hand, Gtb-77 and World Fair, Gtb-64, Abra Ca Dabra, Gtb-75 are on place-3, -4, -5", MANY "old EM's" are in the "Top-40". Can we rate "Rocket-59 is much better than Abra ca Dabra" ?
Should we have "Sub-Categories": Flipperless / Gobble Holes / still 2 inch flippers / 3 inch flippers ?
"Need for rating 4-player-pins AND (the same pin) 2-player-pin"?: Example: "Outer Space, Gtb-72, 2 player" is rated No-27, "Orbit, the "same pin", Gtb-72, 4 player" is rated No-84. For me: this is the same pin -> should there be a "combined rating" ? - or do I have to rate both ? (I love Orbit, must I rate Outer Space ?, giving it the same rating - NEVER played an Outer space ?)
"Quantity / number of ratings": "Orbit" has 4 ratings - Outer Space also has 4 ratings - the one after Outer Space (Jacks Open) has 27 ratings - should there a minimum of (lets say) 10 ratings "for to be eligible into the "Top-100's"" ? A factor in the "rating-points" depending on "how many ratings" ?
