That's right, all your hard work has paid off! We now award whistle levels in the user profiles!

How do you raise your whistle level? It's easy! Whenever you see a stolen or otherwise unacceptable piece of content on the site, blow the whistle on it (this must be done while the submission is new and the option is available). If the submission is removed, your status will improve.

Similarly, if you read an abusive review and mark it as such, you will be awarded for that as well.

HOWEVER, don't think you can just blow the whistle on everything and get points when you're right. If you flag an item that is found to not break our guidelines, this will adversely affect your whistle rating. Don't let this discourage you! If you do a good job, your whistle level will rise more than it falls.

Some users already have fancy whistles! Congrats! :)

Unrelated note to all nonbelievers... YES, I have been working on a game with Edmund from ThisIsACryForHelp. However, I have a lot of projects on hold this summer while I do the console stuff.

I'd say the whistle level is a good feature. Thanks, Tom.

Ok ok but say if we have gotten positive marks on our reviews what does this effect?

Thanks, good idea and also not a great chance for abuse

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 19:39:00


I love he fact that this applies to abusive reviews too. I just hate the fact that fewels on NG will have access to this and probably abuse it. If this should happen I hope that their whistle are taken away from them.

yeah, finally somebody made a topic thingy about it for the top of the forums...its a good idea, gives us awards for getting rid of outwar and porn..yay

Question:

What happens when an illegal movie passes after I blew the whistle on it? Does it mean I lose whistle power still?

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 19:56:15


i think this is a good idea but there will be a lot of abuse

oh well nothing new
good job tom, adding new stuff to newgrounds

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 19:58:14


What whistle levels are there and what is needed to get to each one?

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 19:58:31


This is a great new feature!

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 19:59:14

Yeah, That has happened a lot before, I'd see something that is stolen, KNOW its stolen, have a link to where they stole it from, tell other people to blow the whistle after giving them the link, and not enough people do so it gets past judgement.


The point is... Don't lose your dinosaur.

I like this feature a lot, we will be able to tell who uses the feature wisely and who just blows the whistle on anything they don't like.

Alright! Starting out with a garbage whistle level... must be all the reviews I marked abusive (mostly outwar - they're never deleted it seems)

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 20:05:35


Great idea Tom! I like it when you guys add new things. Hey, who out there has a high level in this new stat? I've seen garbage whistles and normal whistles but not anything higher. Also, how many different levels are there?

No, the flags for it are simply cleared.

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 20:07:07

I want Peashy NOW!!! Well, not really. I played someof what was already done and it was quite cool. Some of the characters that Ed's made are simply fucking amazing. It's probably the only game I'm looking forward to at the moment, flash or otherwise.

Its a good thing you added this, now other users will stop bitching about the outwar links and get them to click the abusive tag. I mis-clicked one reviews tho. Which may be annoying for people with old, beatten up mouse(s).

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 20:18:29


Damnit, I'm garbage. Eh, I've only blown the whistle on about four or five movies anyways....

Shouldn't there be a way to increase whistle power/encourage users to vote on good reviews? Like if someone writes a good review, wouldn't it be benefictial to vote well on that? I mean, if we only get points for voting abusive, then why bother at all, voting reviews helpful?


Still a world famous superstar.

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 20:21:22


Thanks for the information it was very useful - I hope thta everyone can use it responsibly and fairly......

Response to Whistle Power! 2003-06-19 20:32:01


Alright, finally!

But will the abusive reviews disappear afterwards?

Well, for one thing, to counter any idiots who now start voting all reviews abusive.

If it's a good review and 5 idiots have voted abusive, it's better for 10 people to have voted helpful as well, so it says 10/15 instead of a pitiful 0/5.
