Would you be interested in a RateMyProfessors type service, but for streamers?
For those who are unfamiliar with RMP, this service would be a community driven database of League of Legends streamer reviews based on a number of criteria. Users will be able to rate and comment on a streamer, rating out of 5 stars on overall quality, entertainment, informativeness, interactivity with viewers, etc. The objective of this site is to help viewers who are unfamiliar with many of the popular streamers, or help find a streamer best suited for learning, fun, or overall quality. The utility extends beyond viewers, as well. Streamers looking to improve can visit the site to gain awareness of any problems that may be listed, and can leave their own response in the comments.
Reviews will of course be monitored for inappropriate/troll responses, and will be given a weight based on some sort of algorithm that will include the time submitted (much older ratings will be weighted slightly lower) and possibly user value (users who contribute more and do not get reviews reported will be worth more, this could be an optional search filter). We are also looking into expanding the site for streamers of any game, but for now, we want to gauge interest on this type of service for LoL.
Other possible features:
- Sort by champions played most
- Notification service for streamers who are live
- Featured streamer page
If you guys have any ideas to improve on the concept, feel free to weigh in as well. This is just a rough layout of our idea for the community.
