There really should be a + or - voting system, I only vote 0 or 5 depending on whether i think the score should be higher or lower, if it's about right, I just don't vote. The reason people vote 0 all the time is becaue they're rewarded with blam points, why should they care who they hurt or help if they're being rewarded either way. I think the solution is to force people to view entries before they are allowed to vote, so maybe they'll feel bad about voting 0 for no reason.
You are the kind of person I was talking about. You only have two scores in your mind and you will probably never change that. On this website there is:
Crap>Kind of crap with effort>Average>Good story, Programming or art>Godly
and with that you can find a reason to vote 4 or 2
- this was taken from another topic stated by wade via ->
anywyas this is exactly what this thread is about and i count of put it more clearly myself
the 0.001% of ng users taht only see black and white
0carp 5 holly crap this person submitted a flash wow there awsome i'm gona vote 5 cause i cant do flash myself
users need to realize taht there is a degreee ie the 0-5 scale on submissions being crap or not ..
to quote wade in a past post from same thread.
You seem resonable and you probably have nothing to worry about. We're most concerned with the people giving something you and I would give a 5, a 0.
Also, we'd rather see something sorta crappy stay on Newgrounds than be deleted, as long as it isn't stolen, malicious, overly offensive or pornographic, and not completely and utter crap. Because it won't HURT anything. If everyone gives stuff like that 2's it won't be on the daily top 5, it won't ever show up again once it's off the TOP 50 most recent, but if you blam it, it might come back again and again, better to let the damn thing through and into the abyss. Then the author can be happy and show it to his friends and try harder on the next one. Go look at some of Tom's early work, like the very first FDA. That probably would get blammed with today's standards. We all start somewhere. Look how Tom has grown since he started. You might BLAM something and discourage a future Tom Fulp!
