Tellybuzz and Wassup is affecting Views/Comments Buzz parameters unfairly too compared to the whole population of celebrities, it is skewing the rankings.
I think the viewership as one parameter should be brought in, as popularity in the industry has to be based on, how viewers are responding to various shows, how popular a show is directly linked to how many people are switching on the TV to watch that particular show, so disregarding TRP completely based on the fact not every viewer in the population is counted under TRP is wrong, because here we have tellybuzz being counted though not all celebrities had them.
It's true for the celebrities that are in the Top 20 they have many more fans that joined fan clubs and many more comments under their fan pages, but IF is still susceptible to Fake id's being created to inflate Fans in fan clubs.
But as I said the Top 20 does have more comments in a week compared to other celebrities out of the Top 20, this is why to balance things for everyone of your forum users, a viewership parameter must be introduced and tellybuzz out. This way the higher number of comments under the celebrities profiles in the Top 20 gives those forum users an equal shot to remain higher up in the rankings.
Regarding the TRP it's not something we have just thought of, at the bottom every weeks TV celebrity rankings you mention about working on it to include as a ranking parameter.
Well is the TRP not susceptible of being tampered with? Is it the True indicator of what the whole of India watching when the sample size is just a few thousand (around 7k-8k TAM meters installed). Isnt that unfair too?
Initially we thought of including the TRPs but then seeing the downsides we thought its better to put the idea on hold till we have more evolved and better system to measure audience viewerships.
Why not scrap the ranking system? It is as faulty as TRP system.
@nits21 above would just prefer the system scrapped entirely, because Tellybuzz is not being published for every single show and every single celebrity,on an equally regular basis, that is a fact. Also the fake Id's issue as well, that can manipulate Followers Parameter, Fans Parameter and Views Parameter, if you delete the inactive id's in the system, the problem will still be there, as because Views Parameter (Unique Visitors Views) the persons with fake id's have to be active in all their avtars to provide the required Views Parameter each week.
That is the reason the system is faulty.
We have asked for removal of Tellybuzz in the ranking system? Because it's not in our hands when it's published, the fake id's issue yes manipulates the system but at least it's in the individual forum members hands and if people want to compete through this way, seeing the loophole and using it, I would like to give it a try when Tellybuzz is removed...
But Tellybuzz is giving too much points, Buzz, Unique Visitors Views and Comments to people that are getting it twice a week and others are having it once every 2 months or worse, it's totally out of our hands as well.
