I wonder if a more finely delimited ranking system would be a good idea?
For example, instead of having a ranking by Hubpages of 90...would it be possible to have a ranking of 90.3 ? Or whatever.
The point being that decimal-based ranking system would be more accurate and helpful overall.
If that was possible I think it would help authors to understand how the Hubpages algorithm works and how the changes or content affects the algorithm.
I'm not sure how a decimal point will be more helpful.
As for being more accurate I think the only thing it would do is drive more hubbers crazy.
Damn if most hubbers are like me we don't understand the rating system anyway, whish some one could define it ( hello editors ) in more concrete ways than what we get. What I seem to get at best is an oblique explanation of the rating system which seems more unstable than the stock market, so adding a decimal point would probably blow the whole Gig and Meg a Byte thing and my mind as well.

Here's a thought. Since HP rates our hubs numerically before they feature them, why not give a specific number to each hub as it is being written. That way, writers could see whether they need to improve upon what they have written. The suggestion box at the upper right is great,...
