Rating mods on gamebanana... - A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2.

So... I've been on Gamebanana since over one year now, and from my experience, only few people actually rate mods. Everyone knows that rated mods will be clicked on more, since people would think "Hey, this mod is rated, i should check it out!".(I'm not talking about my mods, i don't care about ratings that much). So many mods are ignored by people, most of them are really well made, they look like authors took a lot of time into making them. Anyway, please take your time into looking through mods, and rating them, it'll really help authors getting motivated to make more mods!

    Do you happen to have examples of these so called Submissions?

    And what really gets people's attention, is the creativity of the skin/model and such. And the first thing what people will see is the Render image itself, so making it look interesting could get more peoples attention.

    But obviously this is just my view of the thing, but whatever you prefer it's up to you.

    I really appreciate your attempt at bringing that to people's attention, but that's really an issue that cannot be completely solved. No matter how hard you try there will always be alot of people that don't rate mods and all that but still download and use it.

    The matter of ratings is that most aren't meaningful to the actual submission it's very rare that constructive criticism or support for their rating is posted, these post don't just help the creator but also other members to suggest new features and updates for submission.
