OK, if the score system wasnt abused then whats with the 0-voters? The newbies that post in here and whine about them? What about the fact that some tracks deserve to be in the all time top scoring, and there are some that were in the all time top scoring (like mine was at #19 last week) that didnt deserve it.

No, no, NO! NO! NO!!!! It's all about the downloads, my friend, its all about being used in the flash portal!

No, review score sure doesn't count for it to be in the top 50 alltime list

It should be overall. As in Reviews, Score, Review Average, Listens, Votes, Downloads, all of those on a average

Ok, it's definitely not a score for anything, because nothing changes for a week, and the scores/views/downloads/whatever goes up and down between each one.

If you notice, you can find the answer here

Bah, nevermind that last link. I just noticed that's only for the side panel.

I think it's either the mods or A-Bot

Kind of unrelated I guess, but has anyone noticed that the #1 song at the moment is really... mediocre?

Yeah. I personally think that download count would be a better idea.

Cause apparently, you dont hear much about ParagonX9 anymore thnx to the scores.

Reason why I think popularity and downloads shouldn't count too much is that it gives unknown artists some exposure too

It's not abused.

Just to end the topic at hand, it is abused.

You really think it's fair now that people can 5 a song every day now, or 0 a song every day? It's the only thing I have a problem with, now that the size limit has been pushed up to 8 mb.
