calculations
Since some seem to be treating this as hugely important I just wanted to comment on the method for calculating the average rating.

I suggest that it be a "moving average" so the most current ratings be weighted most highly. Otherwise it will eventually "lock in" and never change.

Re: calculations
I hadn't thought about by member so much.

see: http://stockcharts.com/school/doku.php?id=chart_school:te...

If you use the last 20 ratings (to see if that works) and keep dropping ratings as in the first example at that site I think it will work.
