Default Rating system for threads

Both of the smackdown forums are a cluster-you-know-what of star ratings, mostly in the 3's. Of course, this is because 1 person who loves the article votes it a 5, and 1 person who hates the article votes it a 1. Then so on repeating. There seems to be no threshhold for number of ratings before the stars show up. I would like to suggest a minimum of 5 or 10 votes be required as a vote before the average appears next to the thread. That way maybe the threads will be more appropriately rated, and people can sift through them easily instead of everything being a 3.

Agreed - good idea. I've upped the number to 5 ratings before an avg rating is displayed. You can sort threads by rating in a given forum by rating by clicking the "rating" link in the thread list view.

Thoughts on whether we should up the number to 10 ratings before an avg rating is displayed?
