Back in the old days those were cut down on site or flagged. Now I think you might be right since most of the voters are to easy on stuff that would normally get blammed.

I'll put my 30,000 Blams behind this statement.

I'd suggest that the threshold is brought up to 2.0, from the 1.8, that I believe it is at present.

Same here, but i remember when i had 4k more blams then saves.

It's not about the stats it's about the average quality of submissions. I hate it when theres a bunch load of crap coming in daily that other people blindy votes 5 's for...it's ruining Newgrounds from my point of view

I know right? People care more about getting points then what actually comes onto the website. Worse to wear people who know better still vote 2 and leave comments saying I don't want this to pass so I am giving this a 2. I mean Wait the fuck? If you don't want it to pass then vote 0 or 1 don't vote 2.

Saying that and voting two is like saying I don't want this to pass but I don't want to lose the save point either so I will protect this.

Also raising the bar to won't help either. People will just vote 3 or higher instead to get this save points.

Am I the only one who actually watches/plays the movie/game before voting on it?

So, so true.

Since it's impossible to stop 5-voting fags from 5-bombing every single UJ submission, the admins should introduce a new legacy: deleting every submission with a score below 2.75/5.00 (at 200 votes). I think the blam thereshold is too low (1.60/5.00 at 200 votes), thus allowing 5-voters to gain their worthless saves much easier. Raising the minimum will counter the mass fives.

2.50/5.00 is literally 50%, and 50% in most nations is considered as 'Fail', thus NG should put the survival zone at 2.75 or higher. Besides, most rubbish, undeserving submissions have a score below 2.5, thus why keep them? Most submissions exit judgment with a score above 3.00 anyway. I know the minimum score is too harsh, but most submissions certainly DO end up with 3.00+. Not a single UJ submission had been blammed in the past few days.

Nowadays, you can vote on UJ flashes without even watching/playing it. I guess the save ratio increased because of this..."votin' without watchin', so I'll place my bet on da save cuz there's more chance for it being saved than blammed".

Hey, asshole. Don't do that.

Agreed. I haven't seen anything blammed in the portal for ages, and I can't believe that's because it's all amazing.

VOTE FAIRLY GUUYZ

well... i finally got my first blam point for this week. a submission was deleted from the flash portal with a score of 1.53/5.00. it would have passed judgement if some of the blammers did not have high vote power.

still, virtually all submissions made it though judgement after chrismas and there are certainly not enough incentive to blam for many people. i wonder if awarding extra blam point for each submission removed manually will encourage more blams in the future.

or should we raise the bar to say, 2.00/5.00 to 'create' more blams in the short run?


^Just another nonsensical forum post.^

I think this is the way forward, as we are in a position where a lot a decent quality stuff is coming through. Should we not be able to raise the quality in terms of this, since if you vote 1, you're still chalked up a blam if it gets deleted. Conversely, it's not voting 1.6-2.00 on those images, it's a 2, so why not delete at less than 2?

Also i agree that flashes have to be 2.00/5.00 to pass.
