How many "abusive" marks does a review need in order to be deleted?

And what is this "outwar" crap? Is it malicious sites that auto-spawn infinite pop-ups? Or sites that give your computer a virus?

In personal opinion, wtf?
I mean gahdaaaammn tom, are you trying to both keep people on their computers and eat your bandwith?
I know you know what it means to be out on a friday night with nothing to do but toy around on your compy.
But besides that theres also ddr/piu(pump it up), drugs(see friday nights[or whenever]), sex, mall, and most importantly the motivation to wash your greasy ass (proper hygiene (personal experience) etc.

he heh heh Sorry, ill shutup now. :-D

It's great to see that everyone is getting in on the act of clicking 'abusive' for all those outwar reviews. I mean seriously, I see the same message to the same kind of sites day after day, it drives me nuts. Remember guys, see an outwar review, hit the abusive button, and raise your whistle level!

OK I've had a look at user profiles, and I've seen Garbage, Normal, Bronze, Silver and Gold. Is there any others?

Also how stupid do these outwar people think we are? Really...Hit the abusive people! Bring those whistles up! Hopefully they'll get the idea that no one's interested and they'll go elsewhere. Maybe.

Good adition but can your whistle level go down if you whistle on a movie that is not stolen?

Newgrundling is deity ...
I think that this new system is rather cool and stuff, but ... I'd like to have a bit more information...
Like, per exemple, how many "abusive reviews" flagged are needed to improve from one whistle level to another. That's what I'm wondering.
If that has already been asked, I'm sorry, but I just don't really have the time to read ALL teh reviews rite now... sry.
kthx

I hope the Whistle icon is more than just something fun and shiny to see(unless yours Garbage or Normal)like maybe it could get you some extra stuff.

BTW I also would like to know how many successful flagged reviews does it take to move to the next level.

I made a suggestion for this thing http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic.php?id=74367

Also I'd like to know how my whistle rating dropped when I haven't actually done anything yet.

Dark Blue Flame, I just wanted to tell you that I love your sig. Rock is awesome! :D

On with the topic, not sure if this was answered already, but here goes. There is a recently (not new) game submitted called "Tarzan (Japanese)" out there in the portal somewhere, and I have a strong hunch it's stolen. I could tell for the fact that the thief said it was in Japanese, when the game is actually in Korean. Plus, the real source of the game is posted as a logo inside the game seen in the corner. The member who sumbitted it already received many bad reviews for sending in the stolen work. I just want to know if there can be something done about stolen works that are no longer under judgement. If we email Tom or Wade, will they remove the movies/games in question?

The people who got the whistle info had come up with (guessed?) Saint.

But now that we've seen a profile with the actual haloed golden whistle, we know, for a fact, it to be deity.

Just look at Newgrundling's profile, foo' (there's a link on the same page of the thread as your post I just replied to!). He be a deity already.

To all the people asking how many you need:

I think they're not telling us that because it would lead to more abusive of the system. As it is, there are probably more false whistles and false abusive review markings than there were previously (though this may be offset by the newly increased numbers of useful whistles and abusive marks)...

and therefore, telling NG users exactly how many whistles or abusive marks they need to progress up and down the whistle levels would just lead to even more abuse of the new system by people driven crazy by a new stat to get.

Better to just do a good job policing the portal and reviews while you go about your normal blam/save/exp business on NG, and just be happy your whistle level's gone up at all.

Yep, the one and only (for now...)

Also watch your back Alex, for Blam/Protection points ;)

Don't worry though, even if I catch you, I'm leaving on the 26th for a week so bleh...

Alex and chaotic are the only people ever to pass me once I got on the top 50 list, so I wouldn't spur him onward with extra incentive to blam and save if I were you. Now he'll just jet forward while you're gone (hey, you're gonna miss my birthday! Nyah!)

Where ya going, anyway?
