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.
