    DVII Second Edition underway. It's time!

    My suggestions for improvements: -Do something about those skip maps - they are annoying. -Remove the easy exits; you already said you'd do this though. -Make Map22 harder on the first 2 skills (don't have it only throwing caco's at you). -Remove any optionality in playing Map29. -Find a better idea for Map30 - the current Map30 is pointless. -Whatever maps the secret levels are off of, make sure you return to the proper map. If you leave in the Map29 secret exit right near the start, return the player to the beginning of Map29, so he/she has to play the entire map. -Improve Map03's framerate. Despite all of that, I throughly enjoyed the 1st edition and look forward to even more in the new edition.

    The /newstuff Chronicles #339

    Hey, the rating for Da Will is back at 4 stars! The list is saved! :)

    The rating for Da Will dropped under 4 stars :( And what's worse, the thread containing my big list, which had Da Will on it, is now closed! So I have a wad on the list that doesn't satisfy the requirements and I am not able to take it off!

    Public rating systems

    So you find it to be no problem if I enjoy something that the overall public does not? In other words, are you saying that that should NOT make me feel like an outsider or anything along those lines?

    Public rating systems

    I understand the upvoters and balancers. People will vote higher than they necessarily think to lower the threat of the overall rating becoming lower, and people will magnify a positive or negitive vote if the overall consensus (average) is on the other side of the pendulum. You also talked about what the ratings SHOULD represent (i.e. 3=Decent to Good instead of just 3=Average). In your opinion, if I was to use the /idgames ratings as an indicator as to the quality of the wad, what should be the "break point" in general in deciding if a wad is worth playing or at least worth checking out? Should it perhaps be lower than the 4 stars I have it set at? And in regards to another question I asked at some point, can you provide a rough scale relating the total number of votes a wad has to how good of an actual indicator the overall rating might be? All that would be appreciated. Maybe it would even be good to add options to the poll that talk about if my 4 star "break point" is too strict, and another option that uses the number of total votes as a variable. Just a suggestion. Finally, sorry, but I don't understand your problem with hooking the database to the forums. Can you please explain it better?

    Public rating systems

    I know about wads like that (Nuts, Mockery, etc.) and I do implement that exception and ignore ratings in such a case.

    I don't understand you.

    Public rating systems

    As you probably know, I use the public rating system on /idgames to determine a wad's merits and if I should even try it out. But many of you have argued that either a public rating system is not a sufficient way to get the information, or even more so, that I ought to form my own opinion and keep to it no matter what the public thinks. What do you think? By the way, when I say "rated well", I mean that it has at least 4 out of 5 stars overall.

    The /newstuff Chronicles #339

    That sounds JUST like me :) I suspect you are immitating?? It was rejected because it "contains MP3 music". All you need to do is fix that and reupload, and it should be good to go.

    The /newstuff Chronicles #339

    I agree with that and that was the point I was trying to make. However, in this case, can people actually tell me their opinion instead of saying they have an opinion but they're not going to tell what it is? That would be appreciated.

    Please PM me. I won't tell anybody.

    The /newstuff Chronicles #339

    I read the review of Da Will. I think the first paragraph of the review sums things up well, but I have some disagreements with the map-by-map reviews. I believe that Map01, Map03, Map06, Map08, and Map10 were very good, Map05 and Map09 were pretty good, and Map02, Map04, and Map07 were average. In particular, as you may have noted from where Map06 is mentioned above, I disagree with the reviewer's assesment of Map06. What's your opinion(s) of that map or of the review/wad overall?

    The download links for Tribute on the /idgames page don't work.

    WAD Realease - The UAC Rebellion

    If someone doesn't upload their own wad(s), I will quite often upload it myself, as long as permission to distribute is granted.
