Audio is different than flash. It needs a different system.
1) Take away 1-5 scale on all audio. make the review system the only way to give a song a score.
A reviews weight on the total score of the song is determined by whether people think its helpful or useless. A 10 from a person who gave a detailed constructive review will have significantly more weight than a review from a person who said "awesome song"
This will encourage constructive criticism.
Reviews that are useless will have absolutely no weight.
A review of zero with "YOU SUCK" will get so many useless clicks that it will have no weight on the score of the song.
zero bombing will be impossible. The only thing that could happen is a low score with a drawn out explanation why. This is good.
2) give experience for reviewing songs. Allow like 5 reviews on audio to give you 10 experience points daily.
This will encourage people to review songs. There will be a HELL OF A LOT MORE REVIEWS! everyone likes this!
3) If a review is counted as useless, it is deleted and the experience points for it are lost, so 2 experience points are lost for each review deleted. This will encourage nice long reviews, constructive, and good stuff artists will like.
4) Give a new section for review saves and blams. This will give people saves for reviews and blams for reviews when they click useless and the review is inevitably deleted, and give saves if a review is clicked as helpful and it stays helpful.
1) Reviews like "awesome song man" won't exist that much anymore. it's the cost for getting rid of zero bombing.
2) people could write scathing reviews and purposefully come up with reasons to argue with the song to lower its score. This is inevitable, but better than zero bombing.
Better, higher quality songs on the front page every week.
Better feedback to artists
zero bombing eliminated
people can get more experience every day
