I have suggested getting an official review team together a few times, but it fell on deaf ears.

I believe there is a good chance that people will give thumbs-down to any review that they feel contradicts their own opinion.

The best way to get reviews for a game is to review a game!

thats the whole point. if the majority of of users hated the game and one person hailed it a 10 in a review. then all the people can vote "not helpful" or thumbs down.

same goes for the opposite. all love the game and some reviewer thought it would be funny to rate it a 1 or a 0 or whatever, then they could say "not helpful" or thumbs down.

the point of the system is so that yeah, maybe only one person takes the time to write a review, but if they write a crap review, the majority can call it BS and the few that want to be funny can play along. in the end the majority rules.

its easier to click a yes or no, a thumbs up or thumbs down, a helpful or not, instead of writing a 1500 character review.

We have a rating systems for the games. We don't need a rating system for reviews.

Your suggested system oppress opinions that are different from the majority.

Sure there are reviews that might not be helpful, but anyone with half a brain can tell that by themselves, and don't need "ratings" to tell them if a review is serious or not.

And don't think it will stop the junk reviews, people will probably think it's even funnier to write a junk review then seeing a bunch of people putting down-votes on it. But people writing serious reviews will also be targetted by people thinking different.

Let's also add reviewing reviews on other reviews. That'll be fun.

Phredreeke made a very good point. The only people it will hurt are the ones writing good reviews.

That's my joke.
"You should also be able to rate ratings of reviews. And ratings of ratings of reviews. And members, forum topics, posts and comments."
New idea: Rate polls and poll options! Also rating signatures and avatars, project updates, individual screenshots of downloads, frames in a Klikcast episode and private messages!

I'd like it so that the reviews you wrote showed up on your profile. Shroomlock might need a couple of pages of expansion for his though.

I've been away for a bit, the changes are great! Thank you for my Klickcast pac man!


EDIT: I've written 3 reviews here, because I really thought the games were either excellent, special or both and deserved recognition. I took my time to write decent reviews and it'd suck to get a bazillion "not helpfuls" from people with other opinions on it. I agree with whoever said 'if they don't agree with a review for a game, write one themselves.' The admins are doing a great job here, but "review a review" is a feature they can save themselves the time and trouble working on, as it's not really needed.
