Rating a virtual environment isn't an easy task.
Rating them fairly is even harder.
Some are Gameworlds, some research projects.
Intermixed we have business sims and medical applications.
Some single user, others millions or more.
Therefore, our ratings system takes into account
how the world handles several specific points, and tallys
up the results accordingly.
How well the world greets newcomers, how the
system behaves for new characters, and community reactions
What type of community exists within the virtual
world? Is there one? Is it tightly-bound, and introverted,
or does it wolcome new members?
How painstaking is the creation of the virtual worldlet?
Does it give a believable feel to the world?
Partner to believability, an immersive world
absorbs your senses, letting our world slip from your mind.
Does the world do this, or not?
How approachable are the administrators of
the world? Is there a good complaints / problems system?
If you're stuck, does the in-world help system
provide for you? Is there an in-world help system? How well
organised is it?
On a general basis, does the world appear
to be coded well? Does the server crash frequently? How are
those crashes handled?
How entertaining is the world? What stress
factors are involved? Is it a PKing paradise? Is there a rent
system? All these factors, and more, are taken into consideration
