Make rating easier

Postby lethlethe on Fri Aug 19, 2011 5:49 am

Concise description:
  • After the game has ended (or after you've been eliminated) make it possible to rate ALL the players DIRECTLY on the game page without jumping to another page.

Specifics/Details:
  • Currently, when rating players you are send to the rating page where you rate with stars in the three categories and add "explanatory tags" (rude, good strategy, etc.) if you want. However, this procedure could be organized better and more efficient if a player can rate stars to ALL players DIRECTLY on the game page itself. (For example: players could be listed vertically, with three columns next to their names with the three rating categories.) To add tags, the player is given the option to go to the rating page to select the appropriate tags.

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • - This would make rating the players in your games more smoothly, especially in games with a lot of players. You wouldn't have to jump back and forth between the game page and the different rating pages of your opponents (unless you would like to add some specifics).
    - Since the rating proces goes more smoothly, more people will rate their fellow players because they do not have to go through the (granted, minor but in today's fast-paced information society still considerable) hassle of having to click again and again to go back and forth between the different pages. Especially if you take into account that most people only rate stars, this will make rating a lot more straightforward and thus make it more widespread.
    - As a first side-effect, you will have an overview of all your ratings of all the players in the game which makes it easier to compare players. Rating will become more nuanced, differentiated and thus more valuable overall.
    - As a second side-effect, tagging will be done more consciously since players have to jump to another page (which they have to do now anyway).

EDIT: made the subject line of this post shorter

PS: this could be implemented together with the following suggestion (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=93629&start=15) which would also increase the interest of tagging.

Also: if you have the rating system on the game page you have a direct acces to the log or the game chat to form your judgment. This will be very helpful for many reasons. For example: in long games you do not always remember how somebody acted in chat or if somebody was a deadbeat. Off course, you can check the log and the game chat also in the current set-up but now you would be able to do all these actions from the same page...

I'm going to give this a +1 even though I don't like the rating system at all and I have no idea how hard this would be. But it just makes sense.

I'm bumping this because I still think this is a very sensible suggestion, deserving the undivided attention of the CC-community. :-)

I'm not sure how important this is. I almost never rate anyone anymore unless it's to give someone a bad rating. It's just a pain and cumbersome.

If I could do it all from one game screen, then I would rate more people. Not everyone, but more people.

If everyone getting ratings are important to lack/admins/whoever is in charge, then I say this could merit a look. Otherwise, I just want to play games, not give ratings.

No that there is a new topic manager for the suggestions, I would like to give this suggestion a bump.

Like someone posted above: it just makes sense.

So, now that CC is streamlining the suggestions forum, why not streamline the rating process too?

Please give this thread some love and attention. :)

Make Giving Ratings Easier

Postby lethlethe on Tue Nov 13, 2012 1:58 pm

I have no idea why this very good suggestion was moved to the "rejected forum", so I'm posting it again, here.

Previous version: viewtopic.php?f=471&t=151809.

Concise description:
After the game has ended (or after you've been eliminated) make it possible to rate ALL the players DIRECTLY on the game page without jumping to another page.

Specifics/Details:
Currently, when rating players you are send to the rating page where you rate with stars in the three categories and add "explanatory tags" (rude, good strategy, etc.) if you want. However, this procedure could be organized better and more efficient if a player can rate stars to ALL players DIRECTLY on the game page itself.

Please do not create duplicate topics just because one was moved to rejected. Topics that flag in activity routinely get sent to rejected so that the main forum is not cluttered with inactive topics. This is not always an implicit rejection of the actual idea, and most likely was not in this case. If you wish to revive an old suggestion, you may PM a Suggestions moderator and ask them to move the topic back to the main forum.
