I think product wiki is one the best 'rating' kind of sites out there.  I love the framework and the concept of adding your own +- points.

Are there any plans to expand it to include more localized options; either as part of the same site or as part of a new site.  For example restaurants could be added with 'restaurantWiki' or something like that. 

RestaurantWiki

ClubWiki

DoctorWiki

 

Probably getting a head of myself now :P

Definitely a great idea :)

And I agree that certain aspects of the framework can be applied to other areas... and that was actually one of the original ideas of the site. Develop the platform to be pretty generic and we can extend it out in the future. However, over time we realized that the product information space is ridiculously hard and wide enough that will be YEARS before we've hit "unbiased reviews and information on all products". And therefore we decided to really hunker down and focus on this specific problem, and the behind-the-scenes technology has reflected that with things that are a lot more product specific.

Is that the right choice? Can't second guess things now!
