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...
Yeah, well... that's great. And I'm careful about using the whistle, too. But we're not talking about whistling flash here, we're talking about MARKING REVIEWS ABUSIVE. Both can contribute to the whistle in your NG PROFILE, but they aren't the same thing, obviously.

i saw i guy submit the same movie twice in a row am i suposed to blow the wistle on both or just the second oneIt'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.
First of all, Grecoism: Like I just said to masterchief, we're talking about reviews in this topic, not movies. (sigh)
Execution: You didn't read his post very closely, did you. He didn't say he wanted to blow the whistle (or vote, for that matter... which is what you said even though he clearly said WHISTLE, not vote O_o) on the same movie twice.
He said an AUTHOR submitted the SAME MOVIE (i.e. .swf file) TWICE. To two separate portal ID#s, in other words. He was asking about whether he should blow the whistle on one or both movies.
The answer is: it depends... do both movies break an actual rule? Or are you just saying you're pissed off about him submitting twice and want to whistle one or both movies? In the latter case, they're probably both getting blammed anyway, so just vote to blam them. (resigh)

ok but whats up with people who write good reviews but assholes mark them as abusive? or vice versa
Wade mentioned he only deleted reviews that were marked as abusive AND were abusive. And hell, he missed a ton of reviews that were both marked AND abusive, so I wouldn't worry about good reviews getting deleted. Wade errs on the SAFE side, not the over-deletiony side, when it comes to reviews.

1/1 people found this review helpful. Did you?
who the fuck thought that was abusive?
First of all, why the FUCK did you just spam up this topic with tons of pasted reviews and responses and your commentary?! There's no point in doing that. You didn't even TRIM AND EDIT THEM. Just plopped 'em down in the topic. Way to go, man.
Secondly, why the fuck are YOU upset that someone marked the review you made and were talking about in the above line by you.... ABUSIVE... when it clearly says 1/1 found it HELPFUL. That means 1 person has clicked a rating, and the rating was I FOUND THIS HELPFUL.
0/4 people found this review helpful. Did you?
now who the fuck is giving me abuisive button on shinz movies i like shinz and him and vinicgator have issues and vinc along with hardcore tend to abuise button people who give shinz good reviews what the fuck is this preschool????
At least you seem to understand what 0/4 means. Heh. Grow up, DLA.

Ok, I am just afraid someone might steal it!
So, since we all have different whislte levels, and though different powers of it! Lets say
Normal Whistle - 1 Point
Bronze - 3 Point
Silver - 5 Point
Gold - 10 Point
Deity -15 Point
What are these points for? Well, when 30 points gather on the review by the users, the review automatically get deleted!!
Example - Review - "OMG I HATE YOU DIE BITCH KILL LOLS LMAO" - this is an abusive review, if it reaches 30 points of abusive it gets deleted and the writer of the review gets a small ban which will increase if he writes another abusive review!
No one's going to steal that idea. I'm afraid it sucks.
Why does it suck? Because it would be abused. Do you not realise, as many in this topic have talked about... that lots of authors (and general NG users/reviewers) tend to gang up on reviewers like say... XwaynecoltX, the guy with over 10,000 reviews... and other people... just because they HAVE A PERSONAL PROBLEM WITH THEM. And they use multiple accounts (or get their friends to help) to ABUSIVELY MARK HELPFUL REVIEWS AS ABUSIVE.
Do you seriously think that within a week of your system being introduced... dozens of GOOD reviews wouldn't already be getting auto-deleted because all it takes is 30 normal whistles or 10 bronze whistles or 6 silver whistles (and silver whistles are quite common, so don't think that you can't be an asshole and get to the silver whistle. YOU CAN. And many do).... anyway, all it takes is THAT FEW WHISTLES in combined power to DESTROY a review without a moderator or admin knowing OR approving of it?!
Madness. Your little method to ensure that mods and admins don't need to work at this anymore is more flawed than I can articulate to you, I'm sure. And don't bother saying (once your BBS ban has elapsed, that is) that the mark could be 60 points instead of 30 points or something. THE WEAKNESS OF THE SYSTEM IS AT ITS CORE. ITS ROOT. There is no getting around that if someone got enough normal users/accounts together, they could take down any reviews they disliked.
That means reviews that are lowering the review score of their movie or a friend's movie.
That means reviews that they find personally objectionable but may be perfectly fine by NG rules.
That means reviews that are simply written by a user they do not like.
Reviews like that getting deleted (and the GOOD reviewers who wrote them getting banned)... is NOT a cost the admins would be willing to pay to put into an effect that got bad reviews deleted quickly by normal users voting. Trust me on this. It'd be like speeding up trials for tons and tons of guilty defendants... only you have to sentence 10% as many innocent people as well. Not going to happen. Unjust.
