baitThe review bars are more complicated than spaceship controls.
Basically, the line when the blue and orange meet is the point of interest. If the point of contact in between orange and blue is closer to the park than the pow side, its a park ski.
Mr.BishopMistakes were made in the final stages of polishing this thing. I will admit that.
However you nailed it Bait - the intersection point is the "rating" the ski gets. Each color represents its performance in the range.
What we tried to do with this thing was to give a sense of allowing data quantification of the more etherial elements in a ski.... one that is usually reserved for words in a review... but those aren't very searchable.
So we tried to get the data out of the masses with the idea of scoring a ski between to ideas. Park-Pow, rocker-camber, etc... and make that data really easy to enter for anyone. In aggregate, you'd get a pretty good picture of a ski and when matched with one of our featured professional reviews... you have a wicked idea of how that thing is going to work.
So the review system is actually kickass, but we hired an outside developer to finish up the last few user interface elements... and that turned out to be an enormous mistake. That developer never will work with us again.
Here's a question: If you now understand the bars, does it make more sense?
masterofnoneGot it, makes sense... I really messed up a review a few months back. Is there a way to remove/ edit it?
