Post your question to a community of 469,315 developers. It's quick & easy.

please help me with a design issue by looking at my screenshots

hello,

let's say you are looking at an online doctor profile and there are
quartile ratings and star ratings for various aspects of the doctor.

A quartile rating basically says: "for this item, the doctor is better
than 35%, 50%, or 75% of his/her peers.

I am having a hard time deciding on the right layout (dont flame me,
its a heavy javascript page, so still somewhat related to this group I
hope).

I put 4 screenshots of different options and would love if you could
take a look at the 4 screenshots and then vote which one is the
easiest to understand.

Thanks a LOT!

My first question when I see sites like that is how does a person know
that unless s/he has visited every single one of his/her peers? After
that, I discount any site that tries to tell me that. And, I also
typically discount sites that rate a doctor. What I have found - from
personal experience rating a doctor - is that the negative ratings get
removed and you only end up with neutral (if lucky) and positive reviews
and that makes them worthless to me.

To keep it JS related: Ditch the jQuery and at least find a library
written by someone that has a minimum understanding of Javascript and
the author of jQuery doesn't.
