I've checked, they aren't. That's not indicative of anything though, it's not a huge review site so it's going to be all encompassing.

It's not indicative of anything other than ratings and reviews of hosts that are (or have been) used by lots of OcUK forum members. :)

I accept your point, I wasn't trying to be difficult. I am just always wary of a review site I look at where so many companies have 10/10. They can't all be that good ;)

It's a shame it's not slightly more objective or critical, but that's the nature of it. People tend to either give a host 1 or 2 or 3 (if they're bad) or just go for 9 or 10. In reality, there's no objective sliding scale... what does it mean if somebody gives a host a 9 instead of a 10? Or a 4 instead of a 2? :/

I agree, it's easier to see quality in a 1-5 scale, then a 1-10 scale.

Actually, it's easier to judge quality with no rating at all because scaling is completely subjective, so you get to read actual reviews and decide for yourself.

Some use a scale 'accurately' where as you'll find some won't put below 5 unless it was appalling, and the mediocre number is around 7 when it should be 5.. and so on.

But of course it takes a little longer to read a paragraph or two for every review, and not just those "Thumbs up, good host. 10/10" or "Ok host, nothing special. 6.12312346/10."

But what makes them "good" or "nothing special"? :p

All because people perceive the mid-point to be a 0 and not what it really is.. the middle.

Same goes for magazines rating computer games "This was just a run of the mill, average game. 75%" so 75% is the mediocre point..
