Is there a minimum number of votes necessary to have been cast on you (against you?) in order for your rating to count on the auto ignore feature?

If not i'd like to suggest it.

Not quite what I meant. I meant if one person votes me a 1 and i have no other votes (as was the case until recently) do people who are set to ignore ones still ignore my post based on only this one vote.
If it is the case i think it would be good to set a minimum number of votes before you start being auto ignored.

OK, I think I know what you mean now.

The auto ignore feature is based on your Instant Rating. It is currently a 4.11. That number is more or less a secret weighted average (my guess) that the Zims have set up.

For people to auto-ignore you, they'd have to have their threshold higher than that number, like 5.

I'm pretty sure that there is no minumum number of votes required, but only the Zims know for sure.

I agree. If I was using Auto-Ignore, it seems silly to be ignoring somebody because one person thought they were a "Some Number" and nobody else had bothered to rate them.

Of course, I'm not sure anybody even uses auto-ignore...

Yeah, one.

Too much overhead. What would probably solve all our problems are more people giving more ratings!

See, all you did there was get me to check the site out while logged out to see what the ad was. (and then it doesn't come up or I missed it. I will live fine without knowing.)
