TDC Coders- please could you make this possible? I think it would be a really handy feature to have, as some people (especially me) don't like to agree with some of the reviews being spewed out. Sometimes I think people are a little biased or unfair, and it would be handy to know who's worth going by in a review. To be honest I'm not sure why this feature hasn't already been implemented? Although reviews are pretty much personal opinions, I think it's important for people to realise what's actually worth 10 stars, and what's not. IMO people tend to be way too generous.

You could always write a counter review.

You should also be able to rate ratings of reviews. And ratings of ratings of reviews. And members, forum topics, posts and comments. I rate your topic 3.14159 stars out of 26.53589793238, because I can.

If you disagree in someone's review of a game, then write your own review of it

No, because we don't all have time to write them- some of the members here are pretty busy people. However, if a rating system was implied, stars could be given out of 5 in a comment, and that way users would have to give reasoning to it. That way they could point out what they don't agree with etc.

Well, if you can't bother to spend time writing your own reviews, I don't think it's fair to belittle reviews from people who did spend time writing them.

It's not a question of bothering, it's a question of finding the time, Phredreeke. You're completely missing the point.

Yeah, great reviews there. There was also one Martin Bodger's now wisely chosen to delete. Shab knows what I'm talking about. Like the Projects section, the reviews section is also abused sometimes, and something needs to be done about it. ""

No one has ever found a bug fix to human stupidity. How would Review-Reviews actually help?

It's much easier to just rate a review 5 stars than going all the way to write a 1500 word review too

I first read this and thought "Well, this is a good idea, because people seem to like to make nonsense reviews." Then I thought, the same thing is going to happen with rating reviews. People will give a review five stars because they want to, it's funny, etc. without really being serious about the rating, or give 0 stars because they're angry. It ends up having the same problem almost as the reviews you want to rate.

Being "too generious" could just mean someone might have a different opinion then you Adam.

You're still missing the point. Completely. It's not actually a case of agreeing/disagreeing to a certain extent. It's a case of if it's a well written review or not. If what they're saying is true, or if they're just writing a review to slag off a game, like a review I saw recently was just a paragraph of text saying why a game was completely crap. So basically judging how fair a review is being. Yes, everyone has their own opinions, but I think it's pretty easy to establish if a game is being over-rated/under rated.

"Man up and take criticism."

?

Have you even read Adam's initial post? That wasn't the question at all. I too believe it would be a good idea with ratings of the "quality" of the review.
