I've seen some reviews who were just fine. They gave their opinions, but kept to the guidelines.
The author's repsones was making it abusive. So I think it would be rather nice that you can also mark an abusive review-respones.

O PLEASE NO! Can't we authors be given some privileges . :'( That's all I need is a ego-poll about wether other people agree with my comments or not.

Believe me I have seen author's who insult people when they are given good reviews *cough* RadishClock *cough* but I still think that being able to grade there responses is a stupid idea and I will defend the rights of author's to defend there work to the end and they shouldn't be banned for it.

No. Because they should stick to some guidelines too. If they don't like your movie, you don't have to flame them or something. :\

Still, author's shouldn't abuse that function aswell. They also need to stick to some guidelines. Keep it polite, etc. I mean, it is only annoying to see things like that. :s

Still, that is abusive, Fluffy. :\
And if the people make a very abusive review, you should be wise and don't make an response, but just mark the review as abusive.

Ofcourse. But if you start yelling: "SHUT THE FUCK UP N00B!!!111", you are also acting offending. And I'm not saying I wouldn't do it. But just bring it polite or something.

Though nothing too out of hand I guess.

If someone calls you gay or a bastard, or whatever, then I guess you can insult them back, even though the review mods should take care of people like that. But I've noticed that some authors use the reply feature to character spam or to make racial slurs, which needs to stop.

That wouldn't be very efficient for some abusers. Mods would need to constantly ban them. They should be able to choose the length of the banned period while being limited to 2-3 months. Moreover, the system would need a box telling why an user was banned. Admins would take care of special cases like link spammers. Wouldn't that be better? It's not perfect but I prefer this to your solution.

I've marked ones abusive by accident, but not very often. Usually I meant to click the "No" button to "not helpful" and my hand slipped clicking the abusive instead. Maybe there should be an "Are you sure?" question, like there is for blowing the whistle on flash movies.

True mods would have to ban constantly, at like week intervals maybe... yes we need a box telling them why the ban etc, yours is good.

Hopefully they have learned from their mistakes and will submit proper reviews in the future.

If my ban has been lifted, i'll be a little better at following the guidelines. god being banned stinks

good idea. once, i marked a review "abusive" accidentally because the response was really the abusive one. heh-heh.

also, on an unrelated note to what i have quoted, i might get banned for a couple of my more recent reviews (the ones saying to look at my profile), but just understand that the "crime" is what annoys/disgusts me so much about the "convict". everything else, though, is more of a joke than anything else.

I encourage all our users to be on the look out for reviews that violate our REVIEW GUIDELINES and mark them as ABUSIVE.

Wade,

What I would really like to see is for you to address all the abusive material in both the submissions and the author comments. I know it's almost unthinkable to you guys, but maybe you should screen stuff before posting it.

I know I'm new, and I know this violates a main premise of this site. But for me, some gay guy who loves animation, I have to sit through about 300 instances of abuse every day when browsing this site. It gets REALLY old, and don't expect me to sit still for some of this "you're gay, you deserve (or get) a bullet in the head" crap that's expressed all over the place here. Talk about abusive!

After reading the abuse policy a bit ago, I realize that I've been less than perfect in adhering to this policy, but now that I have looked at it carefully, I plan to be more careful. I do write a lot of reviews, but as a writer who is only beginning to work on animation, it is natural for me to do so. Also, if you review my comments, I think you will agree that they overwhelmingly are made in order to provide constructive and specific critique.

I very strongly urge you to consider this issue. This is very serious, especially given the audience and volume of this site. At a certain point, it is not reasonable or acceptable for your policy to be NEARLY ANYTHING in a flash is ok, but that a viewer is supposed to be banned for being upset by and responding to the outrageous homophobia. IT is certainly tyrue that many of the things I see over and over every day are not tolerated when it comes to racial content.

Please consider your policies more thoroughly, as there are serious inconsistencies. If you feel I am mistaken or misunderstand aspects of your policy, please contact me to clarify.

Let me also say that I really don't want you guys to get all politically correct. I'm tough, and I can take it, but don't expect me not to dish some out in response under these circumstances. Frankly, my biggest worry is that you will ban me for letting loose on some of these losers who shoot gay guys and "retards" or whatever, when we all know who the real gay retards are (to use the common vernacular). (By the way, your BBS policy, which is more specific, is more right on target in my opinion.)

Thanks.

Sometimes an author's responses are pretty abusive. Are there any plans of adding an "Abusive" button for an author's replies?

Don't let this make you nervous about flagging reviews that you feel violate our guidelines. It would take several users to make the same mistake, so usually this only happens to people who are truly malicious and trying to cause trouble.

I hardly pull the whistle cause im nervous that i might not be doing the right thing. Hope i get it right ,when it is abusive...

It's impossible to vote on the same submission twice with the same account. It is either that you have a problem with your computer or the guy used two account with names that look like each other.
