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.
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?
