I am reading the article of wikipedia about bayesian average. This seems very interesting about on developing rating systems, but I have a doubt. How to fix the weight C of the average?

I've never heard of "Bayesian average", but the calculation is equivalent to having a Gaussian prior belief having mean $m$ and precision $C$. Choose your prior based on information you already have.
