File Ratings Added to Directories
Posted by Michael on 16 October 2004, 00:26 GMT

You may have noticed that all directories in our file archives now contain a column titled "Rating." For each file, there is a graphical indicator of that file's rating. The number of illuminated bars directly corresponds to the file's numerical rating, rounded to the nearest integer. The bars are color-coded to help you easily ascertain ratings at a glance. You can also click on the column heading to view the files in a directory sorted descending by rating. For an example, look at TI-83 Plus Assembly Games (Ion). Feel free to ooh and aah but most importantly, rate files!

Update: Apparently a few people are raising an issue that only the top screenful or so of files in the example directory have been rated. This is because the link is to the directory sorted by rating. Let's read articles more carefully, please.

Perhaps a page could be made that displays the top ten file raters. Rating Statistics:
Top 10 Rating The Most Files
Top 10 Rating The Most Files With A High Score
Top 10 Rating The Most Files With A Low Score
This could even fit in underneath the rated files page.
Now, this could be abused. If it was made it would be left entirely into the trusting hands of the ticalc community. ;-)

this is a great idea, especially for all of the Ti83+ math programs. to think that i had to download and try out (and edit the good ones) just about every math program in order to get a perfect array of math programs when it's so much easier to find the highest rating math program that you're looking for.

there's an issue that might arise later when many of the programs become rated:

What happens when you know what file you're looking for, but you don't know where in the page it is? The page is no longer alphabetized. Doing a control-F is tedious and most people don't do it.

like me, you have misunderstood the system for a long time. click the "name" link that is on the same line as "rating". presto! that is the order that you get when you go the the page normally. Rating sort is not the default.

I am so glad that the PSAT/NMSQT allows TI-89s. I owned the math sections today :)

I just went through the TI-83/84+ ASM Games(Ion and MirageOS)...Ooh, I should go through no shell games too :). Anyway, I just rated about 40 or 50 files in them. Dang... now I have 51 games on MirageOS. Wow.

Same here, but then again, it's not very hard at all to pwn the math sections. In fact, you don't even NEED a calculator for those problems. It's just simple algebra/geometry stuff.

Now the VERBAL... *hopes I don't get another 44*

Yes, the math is pathetically easy, but the calculator helps you make ABSOLUTELY sure that you didn't screw up the problem.

I hope I do well on the verbals as well--Critical Reading and Vocabulary is my weak point (my self-assessment showed that I was better at writing than at math 120d).

kind of off subject, but when was the last time your calculator was taken by a teacher. Today was my first time, I own a 84+SE, and have over 40 games. It's going to be a pain in the rear to get all of those back.
