Obviously, there are several issues with the whole voting/review system.
But when you say you want to attach a comment to a vote, isn't that effectively the same as writing a review?

In my eyes, it seems that though you guys don't like the review system just as much as the thumbs system - so how can we change the reviews and thumbs system to make it better? Would you simply like the word count for reviews to be reduced to a few words so that you literally just add little comments and then score them (rather than writing huge long reviews)?

All suggestions are welcome and everything

Ditch the reviews system, and instead, attach ratings to comments. That's what I'd say.

To the comments themselves? Just I know lots of you like leaving more than one comment so might cause confusion? (Afterall we would limit you to only rate each game once). Or do you want the ratings to have their own comments and then have the comments system seperate? Or what?

Optional voting when you post a comment, and detection whether you voted before already, duh. Maybe make it display what you voted once you click the post button.

Well the rating which was given by each user could appear as a sort of "signature" in each of the comments they make on that game.
The first comment you give would ask you to rate the game (or defer your rating), after which every comment you make on that game
will include a line saying "<User> rated this game 6/10" as a signature, which could appear before all other lines of your signature.

Or just a thumbs/rating icon next to the username. Plenty of space there.

Right so here is my idea based on all the suggestions/ideas you've given us..

Firstly, we get rid of the reviews system (unless you feel that it is necessary to keep this?), as well as the thumbs system. Then below the comments box, you're given the option to give a rating between 1 and 10 (and then that comment must contain an explantation for your rating). And obviously, you'd only be able to give one rating per game (and also the option to report ratings that are unjust or silly).

You just want it something like that then?

Sounds cool. But it's only us two who suggested this, better ask others' opinions too.

I post too much in this topic

Jimmi's sub category voting idea was good, but only have 4 things or whatever like:

overall - 5/10
graphics - 5/10
music/soud - 5/10
fun / gameplay / bleh! - 5/10

Apart from that sounds like a much better idea, too much comment spam anyways . Forums are for mucking around .

Sounds like a good idea, but I don't see anything there to ensure that each member actually writes something constructive. There are going to be a lot of comments being reported and I hope you're prepared for it! Don't get rid of the reviews completely if there's no reason to; quick comments and 1-10 ratings hardly replaces them.

I can't really think of any other way to make sure that comments are constructive - I'm sure the admins would be fine with dealing with reported comments too. And I do agree with you about not getting rid of reviews.

Well, at least allow shorter reviews, then.

Looks perfect to me.
This would also prevent fake accounts from voting on their games.
