Review Revision my friend. I get so mad when someone makes a wonderful review on a popular flash showing all of it's kinks and bumps and how they can approve and then before the author even gets time to see it gets pushed down by about 5 pages of "lol that was great 10/10 5/5"(and trust me if you've made a popular flash(not that I would know but still) you aren't going to wade through 5 pages of reviews on the off-hand chance that someone made a review of value). I've seen it happen to countless people.(yeah. sometimes I like to look at reviews a lot)
So anyway. What I suggest is that the voting mechanism for reviews be put into action. That someones review can be voted on so that way even if 10 other people made shit reviews yours( the one that every one likes) stays on top. But I've discussed this before and got some good feed back on how spammers would abuse this just to have their 0 bombing crap of a review on top. Luckily I thought of way out of this. Actually two:
1. The author has the nifty ability to show what format the reviews are laid out(Either by original way or by vote). That way, if in fact somehow a spammer managed to get top spot then the author could switch format so that the horrid thing is pushed into the abyss of unread reviews. This is also good for new flash animators who say they want helpful advice.
2. There is a top spot for reviews. Directly below the author comments is a box that looks just like the 'authors response' box you see when a author responds. except slightly darker. With a title that says Most helpful review...<insert great review>. As for the rest of the reviews that never made it to the box they go on in order like you see now. Except for that one review that is always there and can't be voted on any longer unless it is out voted by another review. But here is the catch to stop a spammer. The author gets to choose if the box is displayed or not. AND if the author doesn't hate that review but would rather have another one there than he could choose a review and it would get the top spot with a title change of Authors choice review...<insert wide range of reviews>. This way it gives full control to the author as to what review he/she wants everyone to see.
The real thing I want this to accomplish is that serious reviewers can finally shine through others who just want to comment with " lol. cool flash dude". And give more power to the Author as to what reviews they want the people to see. (After all it is their flash so they should be able to handle reviews any way they want as long as it doesn't effect score) Although this may not be the fully correct way to do these it is, I think, a step in the right direction. One problem I can see is authors abusing #2's ability by putting a review that makes the flash look good (it may have even be written by their alt. <_<) in order to persuade people to look at their shitty flash. but that is pretty minor in the long run.
