I hate when people click on "Useless" on my review. I just think: "Why do you think my review is useless??"

Who's with me?

Yeah, sure, actually, no. Your reviews are probably just useless.

you'd better pretend to be the authors and look at your reviews one by one. on a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate the helpfulness of a review if someone else left an one-line review that basically said nothing except "great graphics. i love it"?

you might think your reviews are constructive and are helpful to the authors, but once you look at them from some other perpectives, your opinion will change.

Let's take a look at one of your reviews:

I really like this game! It's awesome.. I played over one hour!
Great work!

That's not a review, that's you praising a game without going into specifics why it's a good game, thus you're shoving actual reviews further down the list and make it harder to find

That's why they're being marked as useless, because they are.

If people like a game or it's their friend's game they mark any negative review as useless. Cognitive dissonance and an attempt to hide any valid criticism.

Most reviews on this whole site are like YouTube comments. They aren't reviews at all; I don't expect people to go all Ebert... but damn.

Why do you care? The rating system on here is just about as bad on youtube in the sense that this is how it works:

If people like what you say you get +1, if they don't you get bitched and moaned at for not agreeing with the crowd, regardless of if what you say is actually helpful or not.


Seriously, who even reads these things anymore?

not true in general. even if you don't agree with the majority, you can still get a helpful rating sometimes if you can provide strong reasons for giving a low score on a popular submission, with elaboration and good organisation, and suggestions. check out the constructive reviews for the top 50 with scores under 5.

but i agree the ratings you get might not be meaningful and you should ignore them as long as you continue to write good reviews.

The quality of your reviews isn't all that great. You don't really tell the author anything useful to help them improve, and you don't compliment enough about the detail. You may have 515 reviews, but that doesn't make you a "reviewer." Quality, not quantity. Go to the Review Request Club, those guys really know how to review flashes.


Yea, I farm Anal Penguins. Do something about it.

Actually dude, your reviews are really useless...
You didnt give good criticism. You did not add more datails on why the flash is bad, and didnt add how it could be improved.
Comments and reviews are completely different, so dont mix that up.
You should not say "its pretty addicting" but like "It was a very addicting flash, and "details,details" but it could be improved by "blahblah" and i find it "yak yak", but overall its good and fun game"
See?

Wasn't there a review mod once that would delete your reviews just for the reason of having too many useless votes?

"Great job!" "This is awesome" "I played it for a long time" are not helpful. They are comments, not reviews.

Here's how I think about it:

If your review doesn't have a 0 or 10 and it's not descriptive, then it's useless. Like I posted a detailed review on Achievement Unlocked 2, gave it a 7, and it was useless apparently. What the fuck?

your reviews aren't very constructive at all most of them are just comments or praise. I recommend you take a look at this flash, youll learn how to actually review and stop coming off as some newbie from you tube.

A useless review is actually a review that I don't agree with.

Well, your reviews don't suck that bad. I'd say they're at least better than just typing, "hahahahahahaha!!1" in both fields.

But try to ACTUALLY be helpful, and people will call it helpful.

Or they wont. It's NG, kid.
