RankDuo: a website for collaborative rating

A few weeks ago I posted about elote, an open source python package for rating systems.  Today I'd like to present the first project which uses elote: RankDuo.com.

RankDuo is a simple free site which lets you create a tournament and have other people perform bouts. What's all that mean? If you've got a list of things you want to rank, make a tournament with those things, and users are presented with them in pairs, and they will decide which they think is better. As we get more of those decisions, we use elote to produce a ranking.

Here's an example of one of those:

You may have noticed, if you follow this blog, that the styling is the exact same as pedalwrencher, that's because it I'm a terrible designer. If you are a not-terrible designer, contact me.

Look out for more here as I add more features. If you make an account before making the tournament, then you get some extra features like the ability to delete tournaments you've created and to add new items to it whenever you want. I'd like to add some basic search functionality and reporting tools in case there are negative or abusive tournaments created.

In the mean time, check out RankDuo.com and elote.
