SOURCE: Fixya rating math

Your question has been echoed by nearly every expert that has been rated more than three times. Split those numbers into two categories:

  1. Rating Percentages
  2. Rating Totals
The totals not adding up is easy to answer. The term coined by many in the lounge is 'Drive-By' ratings. You may know it by now, but here is how the ratings work.
  • A problem is posted
  • You post a solution
  • Someone else posts a solution
  • When the problem is redisplayed both solutions show. The Asker has not yet rated either.
  • The other solution has the four rating choices (FY, H, TFT, IA). If you felt like it, you have the ability to rate that solution, as does anyone else who happens to 'drive-by'.
  • Yours does not. Self rating is frowned upon. However, everyone else can rate it.
  • Say someone does just that and rates a FixYa. The FixYa shows on top of the solution. Everyone but the person that rated you can still rate you.
  • The Asker then Rates your solution a Fixya.
  • The solution will still show a FixYa up top.
  • At the bottom, Rating Locked! Asker has rated this solution as FixYa. No more ratings can be made.
  • There are still two votes there for one solution. There can be more.
  1. A solution is unlocked as long as the Asker has not rated it.
  2. An unlocked solution is ratable by anyone but the providing expert.
  3. Once an Asker rates a solution, it is locked. Only the Asker can change the rating at that point. All others are locked out
  4. A solution can be rated many times while unlocked.
  5. You can only rate a solution once.
  6. There is no easy, after the fact way to tell how many times a particular solution has been rated. You can't just eyeball it and be able to tell.
That's why (total votes + total unrated solutions <> total solutions)

The percentages are a whole different story. There has been speculation by the truckload on the math that makes up the rating percentages. The proofs don't proof.

I was a math major, consistently scoring in the 99th percentile in everything from Algebra to Advanced Trigonometry. I've got 25 years of data processing experience, I program in 13 languages, I'm a system developer, programming engineer and dozens of other titles. In short, I've got applicable skills in the area.

That said, I still haven't reverse engineered the algorithyms that come up with those percentages. So don't beat yourself up. If you want the algorythm that it is supposed to be based on, let me know. It is close, but there is still some unknown variable being factored into the mix.

Hopefully this clarified a portion of your curiousity

Two sidebars:
One involves a Generac 6.6kv generator that I'll put into an AskMe

The other is only a suggestion is from one Expert to another. There is goodwill to be garnered by exercising a measure of professional courtesy when rating fellow experts.

We each know the difficulty in maintaining percentages. The fact that many Askers do not understand the ratings system (how could they?) when they cast their votes.

Knowing this, I would rather not rate someone, than rate them down. This is only an opinion and is meant to be a constructive positive critique. I hope you interpret it that way.

With your background, I anticipate asking you many questions in the near future. I look forward to starting these interactions in the same way this one ends, on a positive note.

Once again, I hope this at least explains the total side of the ratings.

SOURCE: How to cheat voting sites

Most websites have different voting and poll functions, with different type of programming (Java, HTML, HTML5, PHP). It would be hard to tell what you need if you were a novice, and is illegal. So yeah, don't do it.

sounds like a loose/bad wire or a defective actuator, the actuator is inside the door panel so you need to check and make sure you're getting power to it, if so then you know it's bad, probably a dealer part but should not be too expensive.
