Im stuck in between on whether i like the old rating system out of 10 or the new one out of 100 better. im leaning towards 100 because of the attractive green box its in, what do you guys think?

The old system is exactly the same as this, yet just with a decimal point being moved around. 9.4 means a 94 on the new system, 6.5 is a 65 and so on.

They are both equal in my book, and the green box does not help draw my attention seeing as I am colour blind. XD

I find the new look to be disconcerting. I liked the old way much better. It was easier for me to read all the scores at once to compare them.

devoidless, i already got the system lol. but oh, i guess it really doesnt matter to you then. and Tharos, originally i thought the same thing, but the more i use this site since the update the more i start to like the new system. i just wish theyd take away that arcade style joysitick form beside the plays...

Another thing though, i find it kinda weird we rate our games out of 10 still yet there displayed as 100. I think we should rate out of 100 now to match the new outlook.

IMO new 'boxed' look would be better if the colour of the box depended on the rating. You know - green for 90+, yellow for 70-90, orange for 50-70, red for 50 and below.

But I also think that 10 based system was more readable because of number separation (at first eyes were looking for 9s and 8s).

So the colours and 10 system would be the best.

i like that idea. I think it would be better just to stick to 3 colors, like green for 80+, yellow for 60+ and red for anything below. Just makes it easier to read.

Meh...I prefer this new 100 system. Most people are already used to a 100 scale system from school and such..so I feel it is simpler when figuring out how good a game is

As for the colours..not a bad idea. But I'm cool with the set-up now..I don't have issues with this regarding my colour-blindness =p

They had a similar colour system in the beta. I wouldn't mind it being implemented.

Same but I am slightly leaning towards the old system but in the end it really doesn't matter to me.

ya, i think most people are like sasukemystery. Most people will use the site regardless of something like a new rating system. The only thing is its kinda confusing still rating out of 10 then seeing it out of 100..

I prefer the old system because I'm not used to the 100 scale system and now it looks quite strange to me. But I guess it's just a matter of time and I'll get used to it eventually. Well, I hope so...

Rating out of 10 is simpler for the rater

that is true, plus the rate is just multiplied by 10 technically. It would still be nice if they found a very simple way to rate of 100 though, just for consistency reasons.

The one thing to help change is to either swap the entire score to 100 or 10, not have both and to have a color change when a game is below or above a certain point, example if a game is below 60 it's yellow. It would be more user friendly.
