From D&D Wiki
A rating is an average of user grades for a page, each on a scale of 0-5 in four separate categories (Power, Wording, Formatting, and Flavor respectively). The scores on these categories are then added together for a total number out of 20. A rating for example, may be 17/20, 8.5/20, or even 0/20, though each time a user ranks a class that user should use a whole number score (i.e. no fractions or decimals; these will only be created when multiple ratings on a page are averaged).
Numbers and What they Mean
|0||Overpowered to the point that it makes your character invincible. Alternately, underpowered to the point that it makes your character completely worthless.||The wording makes no sense. The class is mostly gibberish.||The class is written in completely plain text with no text emphasis at all.||There is no flavor associated with this class. It is just a set of statistics.|
|1||The class is completely overpowered or underpowered.||Almost every sentence has spelling and grammar errors. Most abilities do not make sense.||Emphasis such as bolding and italics are used, but there is a clear lack of organization and no tables used.||There is a discernible role for this class in a play setting, but not much information about it.|
|2||The class has a few balanced abilities, but is mostly overpowered or underpowered.||There are many spelling and grammar errors. Most abilities are very unclear.||Emphasis is used, plus headings are used. Tables are not used and organization could be improved.||There is very little information about the class, but the idea behind the class is developed.|
|3||There are some sizable balance issues.||There are occasional spelling and grammar errors. Several abilities are unclear.||Tables are used, but there are errors in the table and/or the organization of the page is confusing.||There are several good tidbits of information about the class, but it needs fleshing out.|
|4||Just needs some tweaking to be balanced.||There are a few spelling and grammar errors. A few abilities are unclear.||The page is well formatted but not linked.||The class has a good background, but needs some tweaking.|
|5||Well balanced.||There are no spelling or grammar errors. Abilities are clearly worded.||The formatting for the page is stellar.||The class has a good role in the game and integrates well into a setting. The flavor is well thought out.|
