i reckon that you should keep it as it is but.... the ability to vote should be given to those with a certain amount of experience. This would encourage people to record their experience ansd solve the problem of too many users and make 1-4 used.

just an idea hopefully a useful one. TheGuvner

Sounds like a great idea. If it goes through then newgrounds would be a better place.

It would make things simpler, but there needs to be the three options that others have discussed. Not everything that comes in is pure crap or God-like. There are still many that are just mediocre. That way if someone's a beginner and they did a fair job but it still kind of shitty, you dont have to either destroy them or praise them to God. No situation is simply black or white.

I think the new voting system is a bad idea. A lot of people have to struggle even harder to get were they are on newgrounds, also people that vote zero just to be unnice will effect them even more now. I think it sould be left the way it is.

What we've noticed is that a lot of users vote either 0 or 5 on movies, because they want to either raise or lower the score. People are igoring 1-4 because there are so many voters and you need to be extreme to make a difference in a movies score.

Sooo... What if we ditched the 0-5 system for a thumbs up / thumbs down system? Basically it would be a yay or nay, and we would calculate a score based on how many thumbs up for how many total votes. For example, if a movie has 10 votes, 6 being a thumbs up, it would have a score of 60%.

It would simplify the voting process and the results might actually end up being better... We could still track light and dark users based on their vote vs. the score... So if a movie has an 80% and someone votes against it, that would still count towards making them a darker user.

What does everyone think of this?

it sucks ass that is the worst idea ever the voting system would force us 2 only like a 5 or 0 whil now some of the voters still go inbetween like me i often vote 1 2 3 4 i only rarely vote the extremes

Tom, thhis would be an extremely good voting system, for the reasons that you listed. But, if you do make this idea a reality, please remember to have more of those cool voting icons! Up Dolphins!!! --Bobby

i think you should note the score like this
down / up
35 / 67
this'll give people a good idea on what people have voted..

Personally, I've used this "all or nothing" method for quite some time now for the very same reason. Because of this, I have no problem with Tom's proposed rating system. However, I feel that there will have to be 3 choices, instead of 2, because isn't there a difference between a 0 and an X?

I think its a good idea since even the highest acclaimed of the flash animations here barely ever reach a score of 4 and most flash animations end up getting votes between 1-4 unless they are exceptionally bad. I think it would be easier to go with the thumbs up/down system because most viewers either like a film or they feel it was a waste of time.

I think that instead of just 2 thumbs up and down, you should also have the side thumb (if anything better could describe it) because not all is good or bad so if you cant decide, u get the mid thumb. But i could see how this could just be overlooked and only the ups and downs used...

I think this is a bad idea...what if a movie is not shitty buy it dosen't really desever a high score. Then you can use the 1-4 system. if you did the thumbs up and down then you could hurt the movie really bad and don't mean it.

Yeah this idea would be good. Although i like the 0-5 system, this would help in being more accurate on the rating of the movies.

i think the thumb up/down is a great idea. just one question: will the previous scores be converted into thumbs ups or will all votes be reset?
