IMDB Modifies Rating System For ‘The Kashmir Files’

IMDB Changes The Rating System

IMDB is a very popular and world’s most authentic rating and review centre for movies, Tv, Web Series, Video games and much more entertaining contents. With the recent release of ‘The Kashmir Files’, IMDB has changed the rating system for the movie. The rating site has mentioned on their movie page, “Our rating mechanism has detected unusual voting activity on this title. To preserve the reliability of our rating system, an alternate weighting calculation has been applied.”

With 135000 votes the current rating of The Kashmir Files stands at 8.3. Stats gathered as 95.3% users gave the movie a rating of 10, while other 3.5% gave it a rating of 1 and 0.6% voted for 9.

IMDB explained the rating system as “IMDB publishes weighted vote averages rather than raw data averages. The simplest way to explain it is that although we accept and consider all votes received by users, not all votes have the same impact (or ‘weight’) on the final rating. When unusual voting activity is detected, an alternate weighting calculation may be applied in order to preserve the reliability of our system. To ensure that our rating mechanism remains effective, we do not disclose the exact method used to generate the rating.”
