What's the problem with imitators?
I know it's not a storage issue, but even having poor scoring content around opens the possibility that imitators will come.
Bad submissions being imitated by other authors? Well, it's bad enough to have one author submitting poor quality content, but if another decided to copy him, then you have twice the problem cuz you have 2 spammers now. For example, senn any of the SME's?
- 0.86 / 5.00
- Ages 17+
He's a spammer and well, guess what:
- 1.32 / 5.00
- Ages 13+
And if it gets to a score that low, there's got to be a reason.Please, be more specific.
Anything that gets to a very low score, like 1.00 or below got that way because it's crap. If it's a decent submission, even if there is hater voting going on, a decent submissions will get enough good votes that they won't get to that low of a score. What if it's something someone tried one? Well, if they tried and it's still at a 0.99 score, then they unfortunately don't have the level of talent that Newgrounds requires. And if it's at that low of a score, do we need it here?
Where is the challenge if everything gets thru and everything stays? Where is the incentive to improve and get better? If no one cares about improving, then we might as well change the name to Newtube and call it quits.
