We have a plan to overhaul the voting system...
Sounds good! Especially double EXP weekends, as long as everybody really knows about them it'd be a great way for currently active users to gain some momentum on older ones.
Your vote score and review score would be one unified score, to minimize all the score complexity. You'll be able to edit your score if something improves later. Presumably, if all goes to plan, at least.
How will the vote/review scores for previous submissions be merged if/when this happens? Will review scores count as vote scores retrospectively? I'm wondering if the overall scores for old submissions will change as well it this comes into effect.
While planning all this stuff we actually start to question the favorites system for content... We've discussed converting everyone's favorites lists into Playlists under their account, and in the future they can choose to either add items to their playlists of favorites, or just vote on them to have in their voting log. Just another one of those things that could reduce complexity. We also talk about using content favorites as a way to follow the content when it has updates, but that could also work by just following the artist and it would reduce confusion in what happens when you click a pink heart, because pink hearts would only appear next to artists and not content.
What would happen to all the other favorites, IOW books, regular movies, games, etc? Having the favorite as a playlist sounds like a good idea, but I hope the Favorites section on users profiles doesn't disappear. With one undeletable playlist for favorites (like on YT I guess?), it could be showcased via the favorites tab in addition to/instead of the playlists block. Or would the playlists tab be merged with the favorites tab? Speaking of feature additions, it'd be great to be able to sort playlists, so the older ones don't get automatically hidden from the main view if you add a new.
Would be cool to see which playlists one of your submissions is on as well, or a list of users who have that submission in at least one playlist, like back when you could see which users favorite a specific submission.
