Rating system should be removed

An Idea

When you are looking for custom stuff to download such as skins and maps one of the first things that tell you something about a submission is the rating, and since there are many trolls and bad karma people here it can be misleading most of the time. I see all the time maps that are trashed at because someone does not know how to make it work. If rating system is completely removed this site will be for sure better, new modders won´t loss their incentive and people who name themselves "experts" won´t annoy.

    In what world has a mod been trashed for bad ratings? If you want something removed, making false statements isn't how you do it.

    We also have management that can reverse unfair ratings, and we've not had too much of an issue with it in the past. If you see unfair ratings, report them.

    I think the rating system is perfectly fine, there's no need for it to be watered down just to appeal to the people who don't want their feelings hurt from some bad constructive ratings.

    Of course, trolling is pretty annoying, but you can just report them and move on.

    Nah, man.

    The rating system is fine like it is. If you're having problems with bad ratings then just do your best to improve and/or report anyone who's obviously downvoting your stuff for a laugh. 

    Criticism is how things get better (When it's done constructively).

    Absolutely not! It might not be perfect, although I believe with the double rating system it's even more up-to-point than it ever was. Just imagine removing the rating system, then you would stumble across troll submissions even more than you already care to admit.

    Those people calling themselves "experts" actually know what they're doing. ( Like me as a mapping expert I never give low rating just to troll new members. Always here to help newbies to map. )

    Imagine you made a map and deservs to be rated for example 10/10, and with the rating system off, no one would be able to give thoughts.

    If experts badly rate maps is for a reason that the map is a lacking submission and requires a fix.

    Come on, there is a balance of ratings. If you think someone is giving low rating to troll, report him simply.

    Removing it won't make anything better.

    tom, I'd say that if it ain't broke, don't try to fix it. Just because the whole Internet is being consumed by minimalism/post-modernism and is dumbing down doesn't mean that this site has to go that way. I believe that the current rating system is a fully functional one in terms of practicality. If you were to take that away, what would become of the site? Constructive criticism would be gone and would instead get replaced by absolutist love it/hate it reactions. I honestly believe that such models are the ultimate killers of what we call feedback.

The ratings system is present so that people can provide feedback and a proper rating to go with it. If you feel that someone's feedback and/or rating is invalid for the submission in question, feel free to submit a support ticket. Removing the ratings system as a whole isn't going to happen, and it wouldn't make anything better by doing so.
