Critiboard is a social media platform which enables its users (subjects) to rate various objects. By registering in the platform, users gain the attribute of a subject, which means that they can rate an object, but they also become subject to other users’ rating.
The platform aims to become a universal rating platform for everything and anyone. Rating is only made through a selection of +/- button which appears next to every object’s icon. A user may opt not to rate an object and may change his selection at any time.
Inherent in the platform is an algorithm which delivers a two-digit number which appears next to each object’s icon. The two-digit number is from 1 to 99. This grade is called “critiscore”. The critiscore changes according to the total votes of all other users to the object. Not all votes are of equal weight. The vote of each user weights according to this user’s own critiscore.
Votes do not have to be justified by comments but may be so.
