To Vijay and your team,
I know you have worked hard to give us a system where we can all compete with each other and keep us here and involved on India Forums, your efforts are appreciated and but I have a criticism about TellyBuzz articles with regards to ranking.
Unique Visitors Views, Commenting, Rating and Likes to TellyBuzz articles contribute to the weekly ranking for the upcoming end of week ranking only, so if the article is older then that and you do commenting those comments, ratings, likes don't contribute to the BUZZ column and VIEWS column in the ranking because that article is old, also TellyBuzz articles are not published every week for each serial or each celebrity, I realise this is impossible to do as they are too many celebrities and serials but as a result the ranking system is not fair. Buzz should not be included as a parameter to calculate rankings, because of what I have explained, as the ranking points are lost the following week as the Buzz articles are published for other serials.
To illustrate this better
Giaa Manek was ranked 33 and she jumped up to 19, so article helped but our fan page commenting also helped as well as the commenting on the article.
The article was published on 23rd October 2011 giving us one day to COMMENT, RATE it, hit the LIKE button, before it became useless for ranking. as the rankings ran from 17th October 2011 to 23rd October 2011.
I would like a change to the ranking system, I love TellyBuzz articles, I think your team is doing a good job getting us in contact with our favourite celebrities, I would like them to very much continue but for them to not count in the ranking system, because choosing who is going to get a TellyBuzz article is subjective, when (date within the week) a TB article is released is also subjective, Saath Nibhana Saathiya fans have it for one day only for ranking purposes others have it for 5 days (example Kinshuk Maharajan 22nd November article) so fans can make more comments plus all their comments count the following week, also why he is having so many articles every week an article, it's because of the BUZZ of his marriage, but us having a campaign in the Ranking 30 to 40 range makes our celebrity Giaa Manek have more comments and likes on her fan page, so I put it to you, someone having more comments and likes isn't that equivalent to having more of a BUZZ then the people you have chosen to have TB articles last week? So for the system of ranking to be fairer the TB articles must not count in the ranking.
I think incorporation of TRP, TVR/TAM ratings would be fairer, as the viewers have made their choice in picking which program to watch for that week, so an introduction of TRP as a parameter in the ranking and given more weightage points (the same weightage that a BUZZ points are given now). Why should TRP be given higher weightage then other parameters because the ranking system must not be influenced by personal opinions or feelings it should consider and represent the facts, the fact being viewers made a choice in picking what serial or show to watch in the week, follow the TAM or TRP ratings because it's more objective to do so.
