a ghost... only grey
Comments are optional, some people feel the need to justify their rating or post a mini-review. Allowing discussion in the database might be acceptable if there's nowhere else to do so, though when a review site has its own dedicated forum that looks more like sloppy moderating.
Then why there is a commenting feature? Either remove the feature, or make it better. Like on lvlworld, for example. Believe it or not, people can actually discuss their opinions there.
In that case, why did you say "I'll never put my map on that site again until they will actually put some effort and create functioning ranking and commenting systems."? Your map was uploaded to gamers.org, who have absolutely nothing to do with the ratings system.
Yeah, i know. I never implied that. ???
Use the "Report review abuse" option. While retaliation might be justified it's also futile, as you've already discovered.
What if ratings are abusive and response is justified?
Why not? You raised the topic in a forum (a place where issues are often discussed), would you rather I gave your post a star rating and left it at that?
Oh please. And if so, why are you even responding? Some dude is just butthurt, "it's the Internet!".
I somehow managed to step around the crushers (6th sense maybe?) but have to agree with the dorks, it's a cheap way to kill the player. Somehow I doubt your retaliation pissed them off, they're more likely pleased to know you were pissed off enough to respond.
Dork 1: "i didn't spotted the crusher, what a shitty thing to put on a map! 0/5" Dork 2: "I agree, 0/5!". Look at that "feedback" i "should learn from"! So i retaliated, i gave two 5/5 votes and i told about it in the comment. To piss them off. Besides, the map's score already turned to farce, so why not?
I'm scoring you 1.5/5 stars for that remark.
Again, why are you even responding if everyone should be silent? Except for the shitposters, of course.
Didn't spot any I'd consider particularly serious, though I stumbled across two pointless secrets and noticed plenty of places that would have benefited from unpegging and/or alignment.
And I wouldn't mind to hear about those "serious flaws" you've mentioned, i don't think that Chronicles review mentioned them.
I have some valium but no way to administer it. :(
Someone needs to give this dude a prozac, morphine vallum or something.
