[ADMIN] Modification Rating System

I know that SPOOC basically died, but here is an idea that may work.  How
about a group of say 10-20 CircleMUD coders/players (an even mix of both)
that go to various MUD's and give them a 0-10 rating (0 being right out
of the box, 2 being lots of snippets applied-little to no new stuff, 5
being decently modified with a some snippets-some original, 7 being
heavily modified-very few snippets compared to original, 10 being almost
unrecognizable as CircleMUD without reading login screen) and then
getting the average of everyone who rated the MUD to give an overall
rating (to avoid one person having too much sway)

The main purpose of this is to provide a 'standardized' rating system for
CircleMUD's and their originality factor.  That way, those that get good
ratings can advertise it, be proud of their rating, and have something to
back it up, while those that make wild claims without any way of backing
it up will end up having nothing to back up their words.

Some feedback and discussion on this idea is welcome.

a Windows 95-based system, in which case we all might live forever. "
