[17-Jun-2006] A new feedback system

Postby lackattack on Sat Jun 17, 2006 8:50 pm

Gather around boys and girls, and listen to lackattack's story about a Conquer Club update...

Once upon a time lived a man called Iggy List who was very simple and lonely. Then came along Mr. Grievance, who wasn't very popular and had a real negative attitude (he was often abused). Mr. Grievance chased Iggy away...

Alright, that's about as far as I can go with this :lol:

The Ignore List is back and Greivances have been replaced with Feedback. Feedback is now much more like eBay's system and I think I've addressed much if not all of the criticisms about Grievances. The main improvements are:
* You can leave positive and negative comments
* Each comment is tied to a game and can be responded to individually
* There are now guidelines for writing feedback and moderators to handle feedback abuse

We all start off with zero feedback.

Also included in this update:

* If you are blocked from joining a game because you are on someone's Ignore List, the message now indicates who's ignoring you.

* To avoid the possibility of players with tiny scores gaining a gazillion points in one win, I've adjusted the point formula as follows:
The points to be awarded is calculated as (loser's score / winner's score) * 20, up to a maximum of 100 points.

Thanks to everyone who pointed out the problem and helped us find a solution.

* You can now change your email address from the My Settings page.

* We have a new moderator... moz976 has already been very helpful to the community for as long as I can remember, and will now guide the forum along in a more formal capacity.

<Twilldo edit> Just to clarify, Moz976 will be joining myself and Andy as general mods covering the boards, grievance mods are still to come ;) </Twilldo edit>

I'm glad u got rid of grievances, they were really abused
we'll have to see how the Feedback works out, but it seems like a good idea
good work!

Good. I love to have my ignore list back... although I (and many others)will probably be not worried in file grievances or negative feedback anymore...

I always thought moz was the right person to a moderator. Great choice and congratulations to both of you.

About the score change, I really dislike. I think its very small, and I would like something that could also allow us to get General ranking without 99% of team games. The limit should at least be 50... I have only a bit more than 2000 points, and lost already 65 in a game (more than I usually gain). But ok, now I can ignore again all players under the score I choose. :twisted:
