the voting system sounds great to me, thumbs up and thumbs down really sounds like a great idea, more accurate in any case. but what really annoys me are people that submit crappy movies to the portal, get experience points from it and basically trash NG and good people end up having to put up with watching that crap, while the crappy-movie submitter people get stronger with experience points.
Do you remember who i am? i'm Flashed_MRG, the guy you deleted from NG because i created NG accounts in order to gain exp. points myself from a referred point-earning way.
At the time i thought it was alright, since i thought no one would suffer from me creating accounts that would get erased if they dont get used. (and gaining exp points while im at it). since unused accounts get deleted automatically, there didnt seem to be a problem (at the time... until i was surprisingly deleted).
Basically i am proposing you not to offer experience points on a movie submission, since lots of submissions are put in as crappy ones that are just there to gain exp. and no other reason. heh.. trust me, as a person who tried to get exp. in the past by using the NG system i would know! :)
perhaps you could offer experience points if after a certain time it reaches a decent percentage level.
i know the voting system can ban an animation/game/movie if it's bad enough from NG, but the more crap that gets submitted, banned or not, the more a person gets exp. points, the more powerful they are to decide on whether something stays or goes, all from the irritating power of over-submitting crappy movies.
so right now crappy-movie-submitter-people get high voting power and whatnot that you can do with exp points.. while the good guys at NG suffer from watching it and being subjected to their voting power.. i dont like that!
this is just a proposal, dont hate me for bringing up the idea! if you had time to read this please tell me what you think.
thanks 4 everything, toodles.. /Flashed_MRG
