Demo ratings

category: general [glöplog]
Damn, there's really a lot of useless discussions going on in the demo reviews recently...

Please, everyone, remember that this is completely subjective. The whole point of pouet is to write your OWN opinion, if I think that a demo sucks, I should be able to do so. You don't have to agree, but you still should respect my opinion.

Same with rating your own demo; I usually don't, but why shouldn't you be able to give a "rulez" to your own prod? If you're really convinced of something you did, there's no point in saying "it sucks" or "yeah, well, it's okay" just because you did it - and in the unlikely case that I sometime should be able to do a demo I like even 1 week after I released it, I want to be able to say that I think it rules.

The only thing that really sucks is people abusing the demo reviews for other things, like me frequently asking about compatibility stuff, sorry :), people like macaw/kb who seemingly want everyone to see that they totally dislike each other, or people like night_ who aren't able to accept ANY rating that doesn't 100% match their opinion.

Now flame me.

Well, what I REALLY dislike is that the amount of people abusing the IMG-Feature in comments seem to increase day by day. Some dudes (hello Bzik :)) are flooding the review pages with large photos or include millions of thumbs up/down icons in their comments. IMHO pouet is a review/discussion site, and not a image gallery. IMHO the best way would be to disable that feature.

...just my opinion of course :)

And about the flame wars going on: I don't care much about what. Sometimes it's funny that some > 20 years old guys behave like < 10 years old ones, if someone dares to question their ego. But that's not really my problem. I always try to stay as calm and not-offending as possible. I rarely use words like "sucks", "lamer" or "bitch", because that's not really helpfull. If I REALLY think that something is pure crap I usually shut up. (but not if someone shows an attitude that makes me sick or the prod has won 1000$ just because of fakeing or similiar cases...).

How about only allowing *one* (editable) comment on each review page? That might help improve the signal to noise ratio...

Nah, no editing. That'll kill any spontaneity that's left :)
