View Full Version : New review system.. oh wait..

It hardly even qualifies as reviews...

Gives little information at best (1 paragraph????????) and no score.
I disagreed with the old scoring system, but I suggested having a criterion, not removing it altogether! :mad:

Looks like ModSquad has gone to hell in the proverbial handbasket. Having unmoderated user reviews as the sole ranking is pure stupidity. If your going to have only user reveiwers they need to be moderated to weed out the moronic comments/flames and people either overrating or slamming a mod to support their own personal agenda. Take a look at many mods gets rated low with comments like "(fill-in-blank) rulz, this mod suxors!" Thats personal bias not a reveiw.

Also a cut and paste from a readme file is NOT a review. Bring back the real reviews and separate the reviewer and user rating scores.

That's part of the reason I felt I had to leave. After not being assigned anything (come on. I could have reviewed Mines v2 or any other small mod) for a while, I just wasn't doing anything at all. Now this. I've REALLY got nothing to do so I left. Why should I stay on a site I can't do anything at?

All right, Curt and I are bringing back the MS reviews.

Ok, working on adding the MS Reviews back into the system. Shouldn't take too long.

Thanks for your feedback. :)

If you bring back the old reviews you should have more then one reviewer review a mod/mutator.

Maybe have 2 or 3 reviewers review the same mod/mutator and then come up with a master review so its not as biased.

We're going to have just one person to review it, but then the user reviews will either accept or reject the reviewer's comments and opinions.

combo of MS review along with user comments is pretty cool... go MS go :tup:

Thanks! It took Curt and me a while to get the reviews brought back, but we finally did it!

Took Curt an entire week almost, and it took me 2 weeks (working up to 4 hours some days) to bring back the old reviews.
