We've been gathering votes and rating sources for three years now, and it's time to update the way we display your votes.
Fact is, things go south or turn around in a matter of months if not weeks for sources and this is something eroids' "voting logic" did not take into consideration.
We have been including up to three years old votes in our algorithms, which doesn't necessarily reflect current public opinion.

So this is what I came up with.
Your votes (and source's score/rank) are separated chronologically. Eroids will now show you who received most and best votes in the last month, last six months, and last 12 months.

This effectively gives us a new outlook.

  • Stale (for lack of a better word) scoreboard represents our old system - with votes up to 12 months old.
    This table might not realistically represent current public opinion, e.g. source's support or quality went down (or up) in the last months, but they're still resting on their laurels, due to many old (stale) votes.

  • Trending scoreboard is a representation of votes placed for a source in the last month.
    Use that to see who is rising or upcoming. It also shows you who is consistently being pumped with best and most votes on monthly basis

  • Stable represents a collection of votes received in the last 6 months.
    This is the default display. It's what I feel most accurately represents current state, with a pool of votes big enough to vouch for source's stability.

You know you have a winner when you find a source in all three categories.
It means the source has done well over a period of 12 months (stale), is getting constant support by users (trending), and have proven themselves worthy of your attention in the near past (stable).

Other than separating votes by timestamp, and cutting off votes older than 12 months, no changes to algorithm have been made.

Yeah.. I think this system works actually. It keeps people honest. And even if you don't believe the numbers read the comments guys and you can see whats really going on. This system is of course still open to abuse and manipulation but from what I can see the MOD's do a pretty good job controlling this.

You don't just get Karma points in this forum, they have to be earned!! Which is one the reasons this forum is so successful and considered by most to be "the authority" concerning AAS's and acquiring them from legit sources. Try being helpful in the forums, giving cycle advice, diet, training, posting quality reviews, pics, etc. But just because you post, people aren't obligated to give karma. They are free to give it if they see fit. Asking is a sure fire way to get karma taken that's for sure. There's an immense wealth of knowledge from the eroids members. People call us meat-heads but we know our shit when it comes to gear lol. Hope you have great experience on here and I promise you'll always find answers for anything concerning the fitness world on here.. If you can't find an answer just simply post a thread and it'll get answered in better detail than you probably expected by people that have nothing to gain other than knowing they might have helped a complete stranger..
Cheers Bro

I'm definitely a meat head cause I'm not clear on who and how is giving and subtracting karma. The mods? Certain levels? I just wanted to vote for my lab (Naps). I wrote the best review I know how to write for them because they deserve it, but I guess I can't vote? I'm new to eroids but not to gear. I've been using gear consistently for about 15 years with wonderful results and no adverse health effects. It is actually a favorite subject of mine which is the reason I decided to join eroids - to share. Even on this site, some folk have some really strange ideas . . . LOL

from a sources perspective this is the only tweak you may want to consider with your system: It takes a new source several months to accrue a small amount of votes, only until then people start openly ordering. Realistically I would think it would take an average source at least 6 months on here to break top 10, with that being said, at this point they would start losing votes weekly and it would be a tug-of-war with new votes/old votes being erased. Whereas, us at the top will always pull enough orders to counteract lost votes. Just my.02 boss.
