Take the Abusive Review Quiz and see if you can manage to get 20/20 votes right.

Also, this was a 10 hour challenge.

9 Medals Added, but waiting for approval, I hope they get approved*

EDIT: Made it harder by hiding the score bar and removed the cheat of pressing tab on the "Help" button and clicking the useless button for +1 to the score.
EDIT2: Since medals only appear once, I added a "Resend Medals" button in the Credits. Notice: it will only resend the ones you got after completing the quiz, sorry.
EDIT3: Fixed an issue if you get 0 on the quiz.
EDIT4: Daily 5th!? Thanks to all newgrounders!Also, fixed the replay button which was not appearing and included 2 links to submissions from reviews I took. If you find any more bugs, please PM me.
EDIT5: Medals got Approved, go get 'em!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was interesting

Fairly nice, but what kept running through my head, was that it needed context. What was the actual flash game, etc. I think that's what Cryogenesis4 missed. One is supposed to think about the possible context.

How the hell did I get an achievement?! There aren't any

Hacsev responds:

I clearly stated in the comments the flash has 9 medals, which are still unapproved so they don't appear yet.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Too subjective

So I got a low score because I have a different opinion than you do. How cruel =/
Here's what I thought.

1st one was abusive since it's spam

The 2nd one is most likely abusive for telling the author to die. But, I can imagine a situation where I would vote helpful because the author was being an ignorant dick who committed critical research failure. I voted helpful just for the heck of it.

The 3rd is obviously abusive for being spam

The 4th can be helpful if the author takes it as "this is an example of what to do".

The 5th is useless because it says nothing about what could be done better.

The 6th is abusive for spam

The 7th can either be helpful for telling the author what NOT to do (e.g. plagiarize), but it can also be abusive or useless because the reviewer presents him/herself as a douche. I voted abusive mainly because I referred to the guidelines just so I can figure out what to vote for these.

The 8th was helpful because it offers suggestions on what to do better.

The 9th was useless for offering no suggestions on what to do next.

The10th was useless because it says very little about what was wrong with the flash in the beginning.

The 11th, I have no clue. It could tell the author to look at how he looks at races, but the review was also hateful on the flash without offering any other constructive criticism. I vote useless anyway.

The 12th was good since it tells what the author did right, and the reviewer probably offered constructive criticism to the same author previously.

The 13th was useless because (s)he just said they wanted more medals, which says little about everything else. I don't consider medals to be part of a game.

The 14th was helpful because it hints to the author to look for other voice actors to portray their characters better.

The 15th was abusive since it would just shatter the author's ego being told that their effort was for naught.

The 16th and 17th were both abusive and said nothing about the flash.

The 18 was abusive for just being a piece of senseless spam.

The 19th was useless for saying nothing besides how its bad.

The 20th being helpful for saying that everything is done perfectly right and nothing could be done to make it better.

Yet... I got a score of 11/20. That's basically an F, and I have no idea why I didn't do that awesomely despite actually going through the guidelines, voting abusive for stuff that went against the guidelines, voting useless for reviews that weren't informative, and voting helpful for ones that were. *sadface*

Lots of people find this review helpful!
Hacsev responds:

The flash is actually made of opinions by me and some review mods.

I chose the reviews to be helpful if they offered the author some feedback and not insults.

It doesn't matter if the author is a complete dick, you still can't make a review saying stuff like go kill yourself and such, but I respect your opinion. Maybe he should die, just don't say it, instead vote 0 and leave.

I considered the 10th review to be helpful since the user states that he/she liked the flash and how it matched perfectly with the animation. But again, I respect your opinion.

The 11th review is abusive since you can never question the under judgment system.

The 15th was considered useless. Again, this is by opinions by me and some review mods.

The 18th was actually useless because it was for a level editor, maybe I should have make it more clearer by specifying it.

Could use an After Quiz review

Defiantly different, I think this Review Quiz goes over what questions was missed after the Quiz would be helpful as a learning tool. In this Quiz/game ust marking a Review as Helpful, not helpful or abusive I feel isn't enough. Why is a review abusive or useless would be more beneficial/helpful. If this Quiz as more engaging, I believe more people would pay attention to it. Ether way nice Flash.

It's ok.

Hmmm... My first review in quite awhile. I just randomly watched this and noticed my name in it so I decided to leave a review.

You can't really have helpful and useless as an option in quizzes like this. Depending on different opinions they are going to be either or. For example, the review that said they should add more medals is a tweener. The author could very well find that as helpful, but at the same time another one could very well find it useless. Can you see where you made a big mistake there?

Now, of course, there were several obvious useless ones, but it's still too much opinion to put on a quiz. Most people find reviews that say, "This was awesome!!!" as useless, but when I receive a review like that on one of my flashes I love it. It's helpful to me because I know the person wouldn't want anything to change and this influences how I make flash in the future.

You made a mistake not showing what flash the review was for as well. A review of all code like the first one is fine and great for a flash that produces level codes for other users. If this was reviewed on a completely different flash that didn't have this then it would obviously be abusive for being spam like. The same with the one that starts with He's on crack. If this is for a game with a level code then it's fine, but if not then it's spam and abusive.

You make a really big mistake when you don't show the answers. Like I said, most would be wrong because you would be giving a specific answer when it really matters on the opinion like I mentioned before. At least show the ones that would be marked as abusive. You really defeat the entire purpose of this flash without showing which ones are abusive. I'm assuming the point was to teach or test some people's knowledge. If you got some answers wrong on a test you'd like to know which ones so you don't make the same mistakes in the future right?

There were a few good things though. Nice background and graphics even if they were generic. Same thing goes with the audio choice here. The reviews were good examples, but like I said before, without the title of the flashes and a description of the flash you've failed to get across the sure answer on whether some of the reviews are actually abusive or not.

All in all I guess I left a somewhat negative review, but I'm just trying to help. You made a lot of mistakes that really brought down the quality of this flash, but another hours worth of work on this could turn my 6 into a 9 or 10 fairly quickly. Keep on working and keep on creating things.

Hacsev responds:

I should probably change your username in the flash, I didn't know it had changed.

I decided to classify them as useless since it didn't gave any constructive criticism, and you my friend taught me that.

And addition like "This was awesome!!!" would have been great. I still have confusion with those, though. Because if they don't add anything other than that, I consider them as useless.

I didn't want to show the flashes were I got those since it would give you guys ideas, but I guess I should have explained why it wasn't abusive. Besides, most of the reviews were invented.

Yes, I basically wanted to test users knowledge. And again, I'm really sorry for not including the reasons. I had lots of problems with the actionscript codes.

Never the less, I really enjoyed reading your review and nice to see you giving me some feedback. Thanks for the review, Corky!
