Better sorting algorithms?
I collect a few sets from each theme, more or less, and obviously usually want the "best" sets. The current options each leave something to be desired:
- user rating: for most sets in a theme there are not enough ratings to be statistically significant (perhaps something else could be done to encourage rating, e.g. not requiring a full review?)
- number owned/wanted: the division between owned and wanted is often correlated with the price (it is easier to own cheaper sets), which makes it hard to compare across a theme
- number of pieces: the flagship sets are often the best, but usually there are also some smaller sets which are also worth getting. e.g. Orthanc is great, but so is Gandalf Arrives
I think a simple but effective measure would be (owned + wanted): i.e. the number of people who have ever wanted the set :smile:
You could also imagine some slightly more complex operations, for example (owned + wanted) / price, which might have some relationship to the "value" of a set.
