This is pretty good, but already, there are people who abuse the system. If they see a bad review in a movie that they love, then they mark it as "abusive" even IF it was fairly reasonable and said very clearly what was wrong, and needed to be fixed. ANYONE who votes badly on The Void II or Johnny Rocketfingers (read: less than 8) automatically gets marked for being "abusive." The whole idea needs to be cleaned up a little

I agree wholeheartedly. I was one of those people who did NOT vote 10 on The Void II, and I got several people who voted negatively on my review, despite the fact that I said EXACTLY what I liked and didn't like about it, and I wrote a fairly long review.

Now don't get me wrong, I'm not going to cry about having people say my reviews were horrible, but it's definitely something that needs a little bit of tweaking.

I hope this new system is helpful. I'm not really a flash artist but I'm sure it's helpful to others. Another great idea to improve Newgrounds.

We are hoping this new system will encourage more constructive reviews, while at the same time helping us pinpoint abusive users, so we can deal with them more efficiently.

Isn't this sorta like BLAMming/voting for a review?

Im not an abusive reviewer, I sometimes accidently type in msah or something because im trying to rush through the reviewing process. once I put 2 for everything and the thing said 2 and the guy replied back and was like " I hate people who review just pointless shit" somewhere along those lines

i was wondering when you guys would do something like this. there are so many people that just use the review option as a way to make fun of the artist or other reviewers. but when i review a movie i feel that i can't really help the person since i don't know that much about flash. i only give them my opinion. but it would be cool if there was two review postings. one for people like me who just want to say if they liked it or not and then a second one for those who understand flash and would be willing to give advice to other authors about how to fix problems with their flash.

Well, if it's just porn and nothing else, yeah, I blam it...that's what Kazaa is for.

If it actually is a movie/game that has some effort put into it (like Ganguro Girl or something like that), then I rate it based on how good it is.

I'm assuming the Fulps that Be (I kind of like that wordplay myself) keep track of reviewers who are repeatedly abusive and then crack down on them? I dunno...but I would think (hope?) that the system is there for SOME reason.

I personally think that every abusive review should be taken away. I also think NG should have more of a policy that abuse is never allowed. If you really put your soul into something, you really don't wanna get reviews like "you fuck your sister... you suck.... stop making flash" and that kind of stuff.

I'm fairly new to Newgrounds.com, but I've already noticed he tendency for the, shall we say "verbally challenged" o freely throw their tiny minds at other peoples hard work. Granted, some submissions aren't that good. Some suck unilaterally! But this is still no ground for some of the addle-brained reviews I've read. These people are just friggin' sad. They discourage not just the work of the artist, but the belief that humans shouldn't just kill each other simply because they're assholes. Their criticisms are just pathetic and betray their crude, selfish, immature nature.
One of my main reasons for signing on to this great site was to see that these works of art get a decently intelligent review, one without "fuck" being every third word, or insulting the poor shmuck who made the submission.
Submission....aaahhh...oops!
Bravo to you, Mr. Fulp, on this new system of review review! I hope it makes a difference to all the artists out there.

Good call, UNpossible. I've noticed some folks tend to call a review they simply don't agree with as abusive. Sour grapes I suppose. It's not a perfect system yet, but it's a start.

The nicest gentleman to ever slit a throat- was often used to define Jack the Ripper. :)

I mean, for those who us who actually do good flash, every stupid review from a person who's never made a submission á la "man this sucks you SUCK this is pathetic" does hurt. it shouldn't, but it does. I think there should be a major crackdown on this shit, if NG wants its artists to stay here. the abuse is getting really weary, man.

Yes!

Can you PLEASE explain this in more detail!?

What the hell happens when someone finds a review abusive? Is a message sent to the people at NG telling them about that review? What?

And there should also be a number of people who found it abusive so we can know what's going on.
