Hi, and thanks for your comments! I'll reply in details in the next couple of 
days, just a short note on the prioriries.

If you position your mouse cursor over the average priority, you can see in a 
tooltip all the votes, so no information is lost. 

I don't want entries with a single vote "5" ordered before entries with many 
votes like "55555 331". For me, votes "55444431X" are of higher priority than 
one vote "5", even if "5444431X" has an average lower than 4. That's why 
there is a lower limit. 

This way it seems easier to have a quick overview where people discuss and 
what they think.
