I think Tom should just announce that Pico 2 will never come out.

Hahaha! Wasn't it garbage day today? Hey Hycran, I believe you can also lose points for marking a review abusive that doesn't get removed.

So in other words, one gets penalized if one's
opinion about a review doesn't match the
administrator's? IF that's the case, it might be nice
to see a webpage that clearly outlines what is and is
not considered an abusive review....just so people
don't waste an administrator's time by flagging
reviews inappropriately.

Thanks for the clarification.

That is what Joe is complaining about. Quite often, one whistle may happen on a movie, but the movie is still there, no one else whistles it, and it gets protected.

But...don't the administrators review a
movie that's been flagged when they *do* get online?
Isn't there a queue for flagged movies? Even after a
movie has passed the judgement phase and becomes a
rated movie in the portal, i don't understand why it
is a moderator can't remove a flagged movie that is
stolen or hardcore porn or otherwise clearly verboten.

Does the flag get erased when the automated passage
out of being 'in judgement' occurs?

what are the numbers needed to go up in whistle levels??? i've been flagging those damn outwar links forever but my whistles normal - easy i just realised im obssessing over a whistle, sheesh.
anyway good thing authors can at least strike back in some small way against ppl who leave totally unhelpful and overly critical remarks - or who just leave one badly formed sentence along the lines of "UR soooOO GAY GAY GAY FUCK SHIT" which we've all seen at some point

Good idea Tom, Lets hope this encourages others to blow the whistle more often when illegitimate flashes according to the submission rules is viewed.

The idea of a whistle level is good, but my level is REALLY bad, and I don't get why. I've only whistled 3 times, and they were all heantai, and VERY pornographic. Besides, I had already seen one of the submissions earlier on NG, and when I mentioned it in my review, the author replied that he didn't steal it, his earlier account had been deleted and so he "had to resubmit" the movie. So there, I whistled for "stolen", and it had been on the Portal before. And it was resubmitted. Why does that weaken my lvl?

That implies that the whistle level is determined
by more than whether someone blows the whistle.

So i'm guessing that either you wrote reviews that
somebody considers 'abusive' and/or "whistle level" is
at least in part determined by the way you vote on
new movies. I seem to recall one of the Fulp brothers
mentioning that there is a "shit list" for people who,
in somebody's opinion, blams too many movies. People
on the shit list forfeit the experience points they
would have otherwise accumulated. I'm not entirely
sure how it works (and i don't believe it's ever been
fully explained), but the gist of what i was reading
is that they wished they could find a better way to
penalize people who blam alot. My guess is that the
whistle rating is an attempt to find another way to
penalize the blammers. But like i say, it's a guess-
i don't know for sure.

Anyone else out there who has never blown the whistle
but has a "garbage" rating?

Wow, how did the levels increase so fast?
I had a standard whistle this morning. Then I went and voted "abusive" on some reviews with outwar links and now my level is silver!!
I also checked newgrundling's level this morning and it was silver, now its deity.
What's with all that?
