If you're familiar with the system, you can move along to the next article now. WHAT IS IT? The S.O.S. (Spoiler-free Opinion Summary) is a twice-weekly posting (and a web site) run by yours truly. Its purpose is to provide an indication of the Net's reaction to new episodes of several current sci-fi series, namely * Star Trek: Deep Space Nine * Star Trek: Voyager * Sliders HOW DO I JOIN IN? Watch a new episode of any of the series covered by the SOS. Then... * Surf on over to "http://hci.ise.vt.edu/~jreiss/sos/sos.cgi". * Enter your first and last name in the form provided there. * Submit your ratings on a 0 to 10 scale (10 being best) for the episodes airing that week, or link to additional pages where you can view/modify your ratings for previous episodes of any of the SOS series. ...or, if you don't have web access... * Send an email to `jreiss@vt.edu'. * Include your rating for the episode on a 0 to 10 scale (10 being best). * Include your first and last name, especially if it doesn't appear in the header of your message. Having it in your sig is fine. * DO NOT include spoilers! * Try to submit before I make the postings, on Thursday and Monday evenings. If you don't, that's OK. Any ratings I get after the second posting will be used to calculate episode averages and will appear on the web pages, but they will not appear in any postings. * You may submit changes to your ratings later. But it'd be a lot easier for everyone involved if you could use the web interface instead! HOW STATISTICALLY SOUND IS IT? IT'S NOT! About all you can reasonably deduce from these numbers is that one episode with a substantially higher average than another episode from the same series is probably better. There are too many problems with the method of vote collection to support any stronger statistical argument. So remember, this is just a fun, informal measure of fan opinion, and it should not be interpreted as anything more. This concludes this installment of the S.O.S. Join us next posting for more exciting adventures... and keep those opinions coming!
