That's what I'm talking about when I say rate spamming.

This is one of the reasons why
I made this account.  I spammed the rating system with the SOYMASTER account.

At least with rate spamming it isn't open-ended. Comment spamming is far worse. At most, the only thing rate spamming can hurt is your image.

GhostOfMatrix ... so I'm clear, you consider any user who chooses not to participate in the forums or leaving game comments to be a spammer?

I'm pretty sure they won't remove the whole rating feature.

No, I'm building a new one for AG3. We'll require a time limit between ratings because we're concerned that people aren't giving games *accurate* ratings when they do them so quickly.

I honestly don't care. I mean, the most you're gunna get by doing that is 4000 AP and a bad reputation. I mean, AP doesn't matter anyway. It's what you give to the Community. That's why I think I'll like this new 'karma' system.

The current AP won't matter so much on AG3, at least. It'll give you some achievements on AG3, but then the whole AP system is getting an overhaul. We're still working out some of the ideas.

If Dan decides not to award any sort of points for rating games, we probably won't set a timer between ratings. But if we do award points, we'll probably set the time to something like 60 seconds between games or something. And the timer will be controlled on the server side.

No, but rating over 1500 games in about 1-2 weeks then yes.

If you actually play the games thoroughly to give it a fair rating then I don't really care if you just rate games and not participate in the community.
