Don't know if this has been asked/confirmed as I haven't been on the forums alot lately, but will we be able to re-rate games in AG3?
Of course gaining no extra AP or anything, just to change the rating if we click it wrong by accident, or give the wrong rating too soon.

I'd like this feature.

I agree with you, no extra AP.  Sometimes once you get even farther into a game you start to like/dislike it even more.  I'd like to see this implemented :)

Completely agree, perhaps though it should cause a loss of one of the AP points in order to deter people from re-rating the game twenty times.

It's a good idea though, I know I've mis-rated games way to many times.

Losing AP makes sense, unless you do it within reason.

I think you should be able to re-rate at least 1 or 2 times.  But 3 or more changes is just excessive, and should probably constitute a penalty, as you said.

Possibly there's a code (I'm no expert on website design, so I really don't have too much to say) where you get AP as long as there is a rating for a game instead of getting AP when you initially rate it.

Maybe a confirm rating button? So you're absolutely sure before you finalize your rating.

Why should constant re-rating be penalized? It isn't harmful to anyone. It's not even noticeable to anyone except the owner of the rating. When there are tens of thousands of ratings, one vote wouldn't really matter; it's just a push to the left or the right that isn't significant yet.

I have to agree with Frank. What's wrong with changing your rating? One's opinion of a game may change drastically.

The way I'm storing game ratings right now is robust enough to know you've already been given "karma" for the original rating, but I'd be cautious to let you re-rate something more than +/- only a few points, like +/- 2 points, and only let you re-rate one time. We'd hate for a game to start dropping from a 9.something average to a 2.something average because people got bored.

Hmm..  I didn't realize the blockheaded ways of some could disrupt rating.
