Now that UM has implemented a voting and rating option into the website it has posed another dilemma for me. What means more a cartoon "works" better: one that gets a higher number of votes but a lower rating or simply one that gets a strong rating?
At first glance it would appear that the rating means the most after all a 4 star cartoon was enjoyed more than 3 star cartoon. But if the 4 star cartoon only gets 5 votes and the 3 star cartoon gets 10 votes that may mean the 3 star cartoon actually "inspired" more people.
I thought about this for a while, then figured I'm reading way too much into this. I'll just keep writing cartoons and hope people keep reading and enjoying them.
(Still try to vote and rate if you can cause if something does score low or high it does help me determine what works and what may not work.)
