My "Personal Evaluation" thread has somewhat served that purpose, but i think it would be good to have something more objective, that more people can add to.
If we want to have something more objective, is it a good idea to have "Eleazar's Rating" on the wikipage? This doesn`t seem very objective to me.
Now I have nothing against your "personal evaluation of Species ideas" thread, as it offers a nice summary of the species currently in that thread and also puts them in some sort of an order (based on your evaluation criteria). And this is a very commendable effort indeed. However if we want to have something truly, more objective than your evaluation thread, perhaps we should only offer one general link to your thread from the wikipage, instead of an Eleazar's Rating after every species that has one. This way your ratings wouldn`t be the first thing that a new reader sees, when he/she goes to that page.
I certainly don't insist on my rating being there, if people don't like it. And yes, if "objectivity" was the only goal, it shouldn't be there, but i also want the list to be useful, and without it there's no way to sort the well-developed ones from the undifferentiated stereotypes. You are seeing sort of a "stream-of-consciousness" view of the process, where first i thought "hey, objectivity and getting other people to do the work would be good." And then i started the list, and realized the table could be sortable. So i though, "What useful metric can i sort this by? Oh, yeah, my evaluation thread."
I'm not trying to have a monopoly here. If someone is going to review a significant number of species based on whatever criterion they choose, i'd love to see that added to the chart too. There are probably other good ideas for columns that i haven't thought of yet.
