I don't like the thumbs system, I think it should be replaced by another voting system like 10/10 or something.
I don't vote anymore because every time I vote, I feel like I'm being unfair, even if I vote thumbs up, I mean there aren't only good and bad games, there are also half-bad, half-good mediocre etc...
I recently submitted a alpha of upcoming game and I received exacly as much thumbs up as I received thumbs down, and I'd like to see how much the voters liked or disliked my game.

What do you think about ?

I could go either way. I think too many people would give 10/10 to try to balance other peoples votes, making the system pointless

Loads of people would still just randomly go to stuff and vote 0.

IMO you should only be able to vote for something after reviewing it, and if your review is removed, so is your vote.

This would then encourage people to review stuff, because nobody does that anymore.

I totally agree with that, or at least a thumb/rating should be tied to a comment.

I remember opposing the thumbs system when it was introduced and shadowcaster had a go at me for it. I was still a small boy back then.

I was contemplating changing the thumbs system to the same system used for the articles page, but it'd be ashame to loose all the ratings of the downloads currently on the site.

Clubsoft has a good point there, tho when we went from a downloads-based top list to the thumbs-based one lots of people actually took time to get back to old games and rate them. Of course the site contains about 10 times the amount of games it had back then.

The thing is, some people are actually starting to get really discouraged by this thumbs system, on one side because of the abuse (people thumbing down for fun or fueled by a grudge) and on the other side because it's gotten pretty impossible to make it to the top list now as there aren't as many active members as there used to be. That list has pretty shitty games like fishhead3 on there and they will never be kicked out by actual good games this way. So maybe a brand new start wouldn't be so bad?

I think it the rating should go by reviews that have been written on the game. I know, I know, I suck.

Actually that's quite a good idea. It might get people writing reviews again?

Or not and the whole thing is a disaster so we go back to rating a game based on downloads only because thats all we will be left with.

Yes, and with a review its a break down, and you can see for yourself if the game is being judged fairly or not.

The problem with that is that lots of games wont get rated at all. More reviews would be really sweet tho, I miss that.
