Anonymous users no longer able to leave feedback on idgames?

Recommended Posts

So I went on over to /idgames to download some WADs.. and noticed I wasn't able to leave feedback. Then I realized it was because I wasn't signed in. I'm certain this wasn't true a few months or so back, what prompted the change?

(Sorry if this was asked elsewhere, I couldn't see though.)

I believe it was changed after repeated spamming attempts. If you wanna blame someone, blame Carlos.


Who's Carlos?
Is it that kid off of the magic school bus?

Would that be Carlos of CDoom fame? I gather he's a bit of a weird guy.

I dislike the change. Spamming may always be a bad thing, but just posting an anonymous comment isn't. Forcing every possible commenter to share email address to create DW account, and then each of his comments being associatable with said account for everybody (and the email too, unless the person takes specific precautions in his DW forum settings, but I see the problem even if the email wasn't reachable), doesn't sound liberal. Now all innocent people are forced into things they might not prefer.

I agree with scifista42. But I'm wondering if this thing could be related to the overhaul of the database that Linguica wants to do.

By "people" I meant reviewers who have something non-trollish to say to the point.

The registration is so people must own up to their shitposting.

Does this mean whoever it is can stop deleting reviews?

Actually, no it doesn't. I've seen a lot of registered users' reviews disappear. Like Doomkid's, for example.

I've noticed that too, I assumed it was a bug or something as I never leave spam reviews. Sometimes a bit silly, but never spam. I'd hope they weren't manually removed, I can't see any reason why..

Step 1. Have Mr. Headboner dump his stomach contents on his computer

Step 2. You now have a Terry WAD.

Step 3. Throw it up and have it land on the idgames host.

Step 4. Spam the wad with crappy reviews. Oh wwwwwwwait!!!

Reviews. I don't know.
