As of now, the latest blog entry display on coach pages will filter out unpopular blogs. In this context, unpopular means entries with rating less than 3 will be hidden. To avoid randomness, this only happens when an entry has 10 or more votes.

Blogs by friends are not affected by this filter.

Is there any way to unselect the filter? I might like to see all the crapy blogs.

If you click on more at the bottom of the blogs, you can still see them all...

Shame to have to resort to this because of a couple of idiots. Sad

Some people disagree with blogs and rate them low but they're still worth reading, an inhibit option or even a filter value user-setting would be nicer imo (in the same manner of setting the number of blogs to display).

EDIT:: this might also encourage certain people to rate blogs low.

Good idea Christer! You could have made the limit 2 instead of 3 though, since all his blogs are so bad that they fall under 2 anyway!

Great also apply the change too gamefinder...

Discriminating low 'CR' coaches is never a solution. Silly bloke. Razz

Yeah, I wouldn't be able to cherrypick no more.

I have mixed feelings about this one. Unpopular views should have the same chance to be heard as popular ones. That said, you can see all the unpopular blogs with just a couple of clicks more.

People rate blogs for different reasons.

I give low rating to poorly written blogs (or spammy), I don't rate blogs I have no interest in, and I give good rating to well-written blogs, even more if they are entertaining and/or interesting.

I like the new system, but it hasn't been a big problem reading blogs, until someone started spamming them.

How about putting a "report as spam" link to the blog?
And blog turns invisible if spam rating goes up enough (let's say 10 reports).
