New Likes System

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Today we finally flicked the switch on our feedback system, killing our 9 year old rating system and turning on a simplified likes system. We decided to do this for many reasons, some of which you can read here - in summary, the old ratings system was often misused, and its usage was in decline.

Right now the new Likes system is very simple, it doesn't even need explaining, it's like any other like system. We have the option of making it more complex over time, such as adding Like weights like we had with the rating system. We also plan to link the Likes to the monthly awards.

Note that all 7+ ratings were converted to Likes, the others were discarded (unless you opted out).

    I really DISLIKE this change. What?

    looks like we'll just have to tell people that they have terrible ideas in text only now.

    Oh god.. I have a terrible nostradamus-esque feeling that flags will be used as a new mean of downing a submission into oblivion...

    Very nice. I like it a lot =)

    Awesome addition to GB. Now it's just as it should be - if you like something, you "like" it. If not - simply go away. Simple as that.

    this is significantly better than the old 0/10 rating system

    if you like something, then give it a like

    if you dislike something, keep your toxic negativity to yourself

    much needed change!!!
