Just ignore me if my ideas are silly.
That's a great idea. I always liked how the audio and art portals had their own voting bar designs. I very much appreciate that the site is taking steps towards legibility and simplifying, but only having stars appears bland and almost generic in comparison to NG's original designs. I remember your struggle to find a more original word than "fave'ing" for the feed system, and I kind of feel the same about stars vs Pico & Co.
*EDIT* Scratch that score question, I saw you already answered this. But here's another: Could you combine the old scores and votes to save thousands of flashes from not having a single score at all? Wouldn't it cause trouble with the Under Judgement system you have in place??
A 15 minute time window to edit your review will basically beat the point of the editable reviews. Unless you manage to link the edit button to eventual file updates by the author, so you can edit it for 15 minutes PLUS whenever it's updated.
Other than that, the review mockup looks good and simple. On the one hand I like the idea of only one spot for a score and on the other hand, the difference between review and voting score was very interesting at times.
