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.

I think re-rating games is a good idea with no AP adding or losing, but if Cormyn says it will be annoying let's say only a change for user.
A question: if a game is updated, can you modify your rating? Because this is fundamental I think.

I think really re-rating games should be done without taking off or adding AP. Also once after a few mins, the rating will increase/decrease only a bit.

If it is from 9 to 2 like Cormyn said, then I think that, as long as users are being honest that should be ok. Not all games on AG are good, not everyone will give 10/10 to any game in AG, or in fact any other website.

Well, for the serious users, this shouldn't be a problem. In fact, since there are more in-depth ideas surfacing about how to rate and such, this matter shouldn't be too much of a problem, as users will be prompted to play the game for a while before rating.

The fault could happen, but it shouldn't be expected, could it?

Well, cap'n, rest assured that one vote out of thousands won't sway things too badly. Unless it's a brand new game with very few ratings.

I don't see the need to be able to change game ratings at any time in the future, too much hassle for too little result if you ask me, but then again... I'm not a mod/admin, just a simple user! LOL =D
