I have been recently working on a voting system for my site. My question is, how do other sites that handle voting calculate scores? I have a scale of 0-50, and average it out by adding all of the scores up to a total score, then (totalscore / totalvotes) I noticed that when I get up to 15 votes, when you click to vote 50 points, it doesn't make that much of a difference (it goes up only 4 points) Is there a better way of handling this?

that sounds about right...wheres the problem? The more people that have voted the less each individual vote will count for, i would asume.

That's the way it should be. As more people vote an individual voter has less effect on the percentage.
