Oh i dunno something like this.

1-2 = Awful. Would never watch again even if paid. Example: Miracle Train,Elfen Lied

3-4= Worth a watch if even just once Example: Sword Art Online,Noein,Summer Wars

5-6= Average. Nothing spectacular but still decent Example: Mardock Scramble, Love Hina. Gantz, She: The Ultimate Weapon

7-8= Good to very good. Would watch these ones again Example: Aku No Hana,Genshiken,Armitage III,Eureka Seven,Haruhi Suzumiya,TWGOK, Ergo Proxy

9-10= Excellent. Reserved for the anime i think were really special and changed something for me personally or something i feel is a leader of it's genre. Example: Serial Experiments: Lain, FLCL, Texhnolyze, One Piece

is there any difference between a 5 and a 1?

the 10 point system is very skewed towards 7 and is not a very good bell curve.

I'd say there's a profound difference on a classic 1-10 scale between worst and average. Skewing towards 7 is interesting. Are you saying there's an inherent tendency towards 7 on all 1-10 scales or that anime in general leans towards 7 on average? If it's the former, I guess I'd need to see some statistical evidence. If it's the latter, that would probably need a very large polling group to prove out. But first you'd have to come to an agreement on the scale itself. This thread kind of demonstrates on a small scale that we're all not on the same page in that department

Isn't that mostly because people just don't watch many things they'd rate below a 7 though, on average? Although it's fair to say that what we usually give 7s should actually be a 5 or 6 by that logic. It's inflated, like videogame scores.

I just assume there's an exponential progression:

01-02--03---04----05-----06------07-------08--------09---------10

As compared to a more linear one:

01-----02-----03-----04-----05-----06-----07-----08-----09-----10

To correct the preponderance of higher scores. Although it'd be a lot sharper than that, but still. Just the idea that the difference between an 8 and a 9 is much greater than between a 2 and a 3. That's my rationale anyway.

I don't do reviews on shows I haven't completed and I am not going to finish a show that I think is bad, therefore scores 1-4 are a bit wasted. This does result in an uneven distribution. The selection process does this as well. I am not one of the weirdos that is going to watch a show I know I won't like so I can complain about it later. I tend to watch shows I think I will like, and I know myself pretty well.

1 - The worst I have ever seen
2 - Absolutely Terrible.
3 - Bad
4 - Why am I Watching This?
5- A Waste of Time - The show was OK, but I wish I had spent the time watching something else.
6 - Average
7- Entertaining
8- Good
9- Excelent
10 - One of the Best I Have Seen - I have only given two 10s. If I gave another I would have to downgrade one I already gave a 10

This is what my scale should look like if I was bothered to finish the crappy ones.
0--1---2-----3------4--------5--------6------7-----8---9--10

Instead it ends up looking like this
0---5--------6------7-----8---9--10

(1-4) I must have really disliked this show so I give the score based on what degree of dislike I had between 1 to 4
(5-6) the show failed to capture my overall interest and fell flat but there were the infrequent moments where something good shone through that didn't last
(7) this is my average score, it means I liked it enough to keep watching but felt it lacked the oomph of a better plot, better characters or whatever I felt was missing that would've made it more of an enjoyable ride
(8) I liked the show, only a few things annoyed me in the show but overall I enjoyed my time watching it
(9) a very good show that fails in a certain aspect to push it into my faves list, can be that there is that one character that sticks out like a sore thumb or some nonsensical plot point that annoyed me
(10) a favorite, meaning this is the kind of show I would go back to re-watch if I had time because I liked it so much, a perfect score by no means signifies that it is a perfect anime or a masterpiece. It just means I really loved the show and enjoyed it almost all the time.

I think most people see it like this.
1. Shit
2. Shit
3. Shit
4. Shit
5. Shit
6. Shit
7. Shit
8. Good
9. Really Good
10. Amazing

As for myself.
1. Shit never watch
2. Terrible, but give it a shot
3. Still bad, but still give it a go
4. Bad, but not as bad as others
5. Average, give it a whirl
6. Better then average, but nothing special, watchable
7. Pretty good, watch it
8. Great, so watch it
9. Amazing, you better watch it
10. Top of the top anime that can't be skipped, better not be in backlog for too long.

I grade it like a test. So if it's bad enough to be considered a "D" then it's gonna get a 6.5/10. An average would be like a B- or a C, so about an 8/10. Honestly it would just be better to adopt a 5-star system than to rate it out of 10. It's not like I'd ever finish anything that would be a 5 or less.

I rate anime the same way I rate art, books, scientific papers, etc. To explain exactly what I mean by that would take a long time. Hopefully a short summary will give a pretty good idea though.

10 -- Changed some aspect of my mind sufficiently to result in a difference in personality. "Life-changing" is a good way to put it.
9 -- Changed my perspective or taught me something about the nature of a somewhat fundamental concept.
8 -- Gives insight into the nature of reality. (Keep in mind that it doesn't need to be some ultra-deep concept. I've given 8's based on the fact that the show gives insight on Tsundere or the nature of Ecchi)
7 -- Doesn't present anything really new to me, but exemplifies a concept familiar to me. ("Love Lab" got a 7 for nearly flawless, but extremely common characters and relationship dynamics)
6 -- Beneficial enough, in some way, to justify the time I spent on it.
5 -- The balance of benefit and detriment cancels to near-apathy.
4 -- Although it may have had good elements, I don't think it was worth my time.
3 -- Made me worse off (annoyance, profound boredom, content is extremely worthless, etc)
2 -- I rarely finish anything this low, so I've not thought it through very far.
1-- Same. Maybe it's bad enough to lower the standard for all of society? I don't know. I would assume it would be the negative equivalent of a "10" but I don't think I've seen anything that qualifies. But it's probably good that Humans don't often make things that obviously make me regress as a person (non-obvious ones might be a bit more common though).


Edit: Oddly enough, this does give me a pretty good bell curve, or so says MAL.

I like how there's no mention of simple fun, entertainment or enjoyment of a show.

Buzzkill is my craft. But to be fair, you'd need to be a bit of a dolt to not enjoy anything above a 5, even in this system.

Haha, everyone has a different definition of good. So yes I could tell that your sense of pleasure in watching anime is a bit more ponderous than the average fan.

That's a really engaging and useful system. Ah... not much to add, just kudos.

That makes your MAL worth stalking, almost to a unique degree.
