…So finally we can launch the hidden rank feature! You can find out in this blogpost what this exactly means, and what the changes are!
So what’s exactly changing?
If you go to a project where the hidden ranks feature is enabled you’ll find this message in the rating box. You can still vote normally, but you won’t see the average rating of the idea you have rated for.
Do I still see my own rank?
Yes. You will still be able to see your own rank and score. You don’t see the rank or score from any other idea in a hidden rank project.
So you might think, how do I get an idea of who my competitors are?
Well, we implemented a new filter for that. In hidden rank contests you will be able to filter for e.g the top 20 in random order. (Standard setting here is sort by random, filter by all)
How random is this “sort by random”?
Pretty random. The random sorting is updated once per hour.
Can I let people know the rank of my idea with a comment?
No you can’t, otherwise the whole hidden rank feature doesn’t make much sense. We won’t allow comments where you state your rank, such comments will be taken out.
We’re pretty excited about it, we would of course appreciate your feedback! If you have any questions just drop them here in the comments!
