This is really nice. I haven't found time to review 5 things in a single day in a long time and as such haven't leveled up in a long time.

3) You can now edit both your score and review. You can delete your review, too.

This is partly bugged; if you click Edit from your own reviews page, the review disappears (not permanently; you can refresh it.)

We are now ignoring the "anonymous" vote data from 2000-2015.

I feel like this is bad for classic submissions whose scores were fairly accurate as a result of many guest users visiting, but for other things (particularly a prevalent zero bombing issue in the audio portal) this is great. The biggest issue I see is that submissions that might have gotten a lot of traffic when they came out but have fallen into obscurity will be vulnerable to very few votes, and without the new influx of traffic it originally got, such submissions may never recover.

I understand what you mean. It does seem like all the updates are geared toward smart phones and not browser users.

Great update guys!, the rating system feels a lot more polished now, and I am really glad I can now delete some of my reviews I did back in 2012 and edit some unfair ratings. All in all, thanks for dedicating so much time to NG for so many years! Also, @IvanAlmighty Tankman Steve looks great!

B&P only counts when voting on games and movies.

Very cool! Really digging the ability to go back and re-do some of my terrible reviews from when I was 13. Also really cool to see the compromise with the stars and the character artwork, Steve is looking fantastic.

Will be looking into this tomorrow but I think it's a matter of the score total updating once a new vote is cast.

And are we ever going to do something about people using the reviews as a comment section? I don't really know how to fix it, considering how standard Youtube style comments have become it's sort of expected, but it's annoying to get reviews that just say, "cool". I like to respond to every review eventually, but there's nothing much to say half the time, and these comment-like reviews crowd out the legit good ones.

We're still trying to encourage more constructive reviews, although I don't really want any sort of positive response to be punished. Ideally people will emulate the good examples and gun for lots of reactions.

This probably isn't feasible, but seeing a record of everything you ever voted on (well, since 2015) would be cool.

No promises but I'd like to give users the option to choose their vote mascot, so you could replace Steve with a variety of other characters. There are higher priority items at the moment though.

Hm, this is defo a milestone for the site.

RIP Pico(and the other respective characters from the other portals)

Gonna take some time for people to get used to the new setting, after all, voting system's been the same all those years.
Gotta say new one's rather lacking in the colors department, however.

Response to Voting & Review Overhaul is a go! 2018-09-20 23:01:09


Glad to see NG is still evolving. Any chance we'll get messages from Steve or something like that once our daily experience has been fully deposited or if we're levelling up or if we reach an EXP milestone (e.g. 10,000 EXP; 5,555 EXP)? Kinda a bummer that now the only way we know how close we are to a new level is by checking the user stats shot.

One thing that I liked in the 2007 update was when you voted on something it would show how much a voting point that it increased or decreased the submission's score. Any chance of that coming back now that the review bar and voting bar have merged?

Very interesting update, although I suspect there are going to be major shifts in the charts.

Also a little disappointed to see that review comment threads weren't added. I think it would have been interesting to allow open discussions about the feedback users are giving.

Keep up the great work NG

I have a couple of old cartoons from 2013 that have lost their score entirely and on their page say "awaiting votes".

For a minute there I thought there was something wrong with my computer, then I go to homepage for answers and of course I find answers here. I've now tried the new system, I am pleased Tom, I am pleased.

Response to Voting & Review Overhaul is a go! 2018-09-21 01:08:33


Oh, so that was the reason for that maintenance last night. I figured something was off when I saw that "A Fable II Experience 2 was the best movie of all time. About review scores replacing vote scores, thanks, Tom, you've just raised a lot of scores that should have been higher. Also, the ability to delete and edit review will come in really handy, I'm sure. The emotes, though, I don't know. The Tankman stuff is super satisfying though, and I love how it gives you that bit of xp. Overall, a big change, but a convenient change for the most part.

But what about level ups? Before it would show "Congrats, you reached level XY!", doesn't it do that anymore? I mean, not that it matters to me, but not every user has reached level 60 yet. ;)

I'm rating this update 3.5 stars (sorry, ha!)
I like being able to give half stars. Scrolling across the stars and seeing the tank dude face change is a nice touch.

Some of the "Author Comments" can sometimes contain lots of text and I don't like having to scroll down the page to find the stars. I'm thinking the layout could be improved, not sure how though.

bring the old voting system back, at least it told us how many more points you needed to advance to the next level

@Tom to be honest some features like wisle status is pretty much useless nowadays ....my best advice is to get rid of it mine has been stuck on garbage and hasent changed and probably its broken / not even worth seein and i give good reviews to ppl and dont get any credit for it so why keep it?

At first I was a bit confused about the voting system. I was like how do you vote? But i like how the new system kinda encourages people to write a review or comment with your vote. I always look forward to comments to my work and I like to give comments on other pieces of work. Overall I like this.

Response to Voting & Review Overhaul is a go! 2018-09-21 05:30:46


Wonder if it would have been worth saving all the old scores as legacy votes and completely starting fresh with the new voting system.

I will see how it goes but all the scores currently look out of wack and the best of all time just doesn't seem right to me.

Interesting update to say the least.
