Nice job with the updates, but I think that there should only be 3 or 4 stars instead of five. Also, get rid of the ratings medals, because they encourage unnecessary ratings. Plus, there ought to be an RSS feed for the "Headlines" column. :)

good effort lack, your making strides in the right direction....

--Teammate rating--
should be AUTOMATED by giving everyone seperate Team Scores/Ranking and Individual Scores/Rankings; it is very simple. team games count towards your team score, indy games count only toward you indy score.


-Star ratings-
they suck; i suggested Thumbs Up/Neutral/Down, but i think someone else earlier in this thread nailed it better
have only one rating called "Game Experience:" with three different ratings: "Impressed - Satisfied - Disappointed"
the tags or written feedback can explain it any further if need be.
Impressive = I would seek out and recommend others to play with/against this player
Satisfied = I have no objections to playing with/against this quality player again, nor should other players
Disappointed = I will refrain from joining games with this player and suggest other players avoid them too

your ratings score would be the result of two numbers:
percentage of people rating you Impressive / percentage of people rating you disappointing
so your score would be something like 21% impressed / 10% disappointed for a score of "2.1"
an ideal score would be 25% impressed / 5% disappointed = "5.0" rating

also, players will have a rating based on the ratings they give, ie your a 2.1 rated player, and you give 3.4 ratings
this self moderates the feedback systems as players who give excessive Impressed/disappointed ratings can be monitored automatically.


--Backdoor written feedback--
you do realize that by allowing written response comments, you are basically implementing the old feedback system, just making it a tad harder to find. one can respond anyway they like to any feedback, so you can just leave your comments in your response to their rating. i think you will find that you'll have the same moderation issues, as it is likely that people will respond/revenge a poor rating with an abusive written response.
of course, I BELIEVE written feedback should be allowed and moderated on its content and not its merrit, just like any forum post.


--Moaning about feedback your left--
first, you need to get a fucking backbone and second you can just get over it. this is not preschool where everybody is special and everybody wins. if someone thinks you suck, then they have a right to that opinion. you can question its validity in your response, but you can't cry to mommy admin about it.

i don't understand why it was such a problem in the past, moderating feedback. once someone violates written feedback standars a few times, your turn it off. forum members are not idiots, they can discern if a written piece of feedback is valid or just a tirade

I agree with this player. I love the new attendance feature but the rest of the system gets dumber with each iteration. To protest, I have withdrawn all feedback I have issued to date for everyone and am not giving any more feedback. I think attendance plus a single additional rating of good/neutral/bad would be great. If your goal is to not arbitrate comments, then I think you could either not have the comment or have a feedback bullet list to pick from as you do now. I think no comments but leave the wall so people who care about their reputation can self moderate instead of complaining to you. But it will give people a place to vent at idiots and get it off their chest.

I will accept that the good/bad teammate tag might be useful too. But I have not tried team games yet, so I'll leave judgment up to those who have.

Summary: implement simplest possible feedback that does not require moderation

As for the scale, here's what I think:

    The scale should be cut down to 3 - positive, neutral and negative (wonder where i got that from...) or good, neutral, bad (notice how i don't use the word average). As another user said, you can think of it as a rating of the rater's experience of that user.

    Now that you've already managed to drop the attendance and teamwork ratings, with just a little nudge, you can get rid of two of the others and go back to having only one rating, now that you've introduced tags to descriptively complement the rating. Is it really that necessary to have Fairplay, Gameplay and Attitude?

    If you do put it down to 3 "stars", i think the feedback numbering system was a lot nicer instead of the average that's currently used (just an opinion) and that, whether or not you include the neutrals as well, you could just have a sum of all the positive (, neutral) and negative ratings a person has received next to their screen name (as you did before).

    There's no shame in leaving no feedback, and I think fluff feedback is part of the problem with the current system. I think the ratings medal should be eliminated as soon as possible.

another suggestion would be ... to also have what the average feedback rating that a player has left for others, so to avoid playing against players that continually leave bad feedback for others .........

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS LACK AND THE REST OF THE PEOPLE AT CC !!!!!

i think the additional tags of aggressive player, and conservative player would be beneficial.

the attendance rating is ok, but it would be nice if c.c. could implement a surrender button , in a 2 player game anyways, so that you wouldnt have to drag out a game unnecesarrilly and your attendance rating wouldnt be lowered for missing turns.

Ratings are a fantastic improvement Thanks LackAttack
However I received a heap of really bad ratings from several names (one person though) and incidentally got kicked for multi-accounting.
It seems that this one person put their best efforts into giving everyone bad ratings.
I'm not gonna start crying cos I got a few bad ratings but it's something that could be looked at.
If someone gets kicked any ratings they have left get deleted maybe?

Which is why I've quit rating people for the time being.

Perhaps one of the statistics, in addition to "fair play, game play, and attitude," could be "average rating left for others." That score would be used to calculate the players own total rating as well.

It is essentially, showing if someone is a particulary harsh judge of others. It would also create an incentive to use a base of 5 rather than 3's.

Thoughts?

One improvement I'd like to see is the attendance % listed next to the rating in the game finder. Mainly because that's my key rating - the others tend to be objective or misleading due to some players giving 1's to people they lose to, or even just everyone.

i do that too.. It's cheaper than a guarddog!

It is the same principle as the old Arapaho Burglar alarm: they placed the fart of a medicine-man by the entrance to the teepee (actually they kept it in a buffalo scrotum due to their lack of silica) when the intruder stepped on the Buffalo Scrotum it omitted the pungent 'breath of the ancestors' and also gave off a loud noise (due to the use of a dried, prairie-dog sphincter opening at one end) alerting the inhabitance to danger.*

the comments (tags) are a bit too generic, i think there should be more descriptive choices
with 23000 or so members, obviously the few choices we have dont quite cover everyone.

How about a tag for when you leave ratings that somehow explains "this person will give the game to someone else to lose less points"? I'm a bit sick of this happening to me and would like to leave some ratings with that tag.
