Forums → Support Forum → Ratings: 1 point instead of 2
Well, I was looking at the profiles of some of the higher ranking members and I noticed that almost all of them have rated about 600 games. As far as I am aware, rating a game will give you two points, and posting in the forum gives you 1 point. I was thinking, why give somebody 1000 points for going through the site and clicking a whole bunch, whilst spending a greater amount of time contributing to the site community will give less points? I think that it would be a good idea to make game rating give less points, forum posting more points, or both. Does anybody have an opinion on this?

ratings 2 points
i agree with that rateing a game and maby comenting about that isent realy helping that much
No way! rating a game should be 1 point. Anyone can just go through and just rate a game. I think forum posts should be 2 points because you actually have to put thought in your comments.
Yea your right i was thinking that the other day maybe they will change it
I totally think this has to work. The forums will get popular I bet just because they are more points. This brings up another problem. People will start leaving pointless comments on forums.
Which is why we have mods...
Yep, you're right ubertuna. Also, the reason why rating a game is worth 2 points is that it was supposed to be used to show how many games the user has played and that's being interactive with the site, but now a days people just rate games without even playing them, so now the points have to be lowered for rating a game, as you have already said.
Yes because some people just rate games without playing them I like to play games on this site and I must play them before I rate them.
Well, maybe if there was some sort of timer that wouldn't let you rate a game until you've been on the page, say... 5-10 minutes. That's ussually the amount of time it takes me to come up with a solid, although not merit-worthy, comment and an accurate rating.
Thats a great idea! The timer would make you actually play the game and think of a non-spam comment. I like it!
I Agree that forum posts should be worth more but rating should stay at 2 points.
Yea the site and points should really be turend around.You play games to enjoy them not make points
who cares? leave the point system be.
It is much much easier to moderator the forums than the game comments. We can lock and delete a topic rather quickly. Keeping up with 56,000 member's profiles and 650 + games is much harder to catch spam.
It seems that most people think that it would be a good idea to make forum posting give more points, game rating give less points, or make a timer. Is anything going to be done about this in the near future?
