Default NVNews Ratings!

It's nice that we have "feedback threads" but it would be nice if we associated ratings polls to all feedback threads. That way at a glance you can see how everyone rates a game or piece of hardware without having to read through pages of random opinions.

Ideally it would be great if there were a way of seeing an average score.

But at the very least ratings polls should be mandatory for all feedback threads.

I definitely support this idea & even more.

How about if nvnews gets its own game ratings. we simply make a poll thread to rate a certain game & let only nvnews members to vote. when the poll closes say after 4-5 days we gather the avarage score out from the poll (just like how MowTin explained above) & put the final score in the front page. that would be awesome!!

nvnews has so many different users with wide arrange of ideas , interests & views so i think accumulating all that in one final score can give a good indication of how good a game is , for the public aswell as the nvnews members themselves.

i know this is an Nvidia video cards hardware fansite but having our own game ratings would not conflict with the main purpose of this site , Gaming!

Hmm, sounds like a good idea to me. Maybe make it so you have to be a member for a while or have a minimum post count before you can vote?

Yep that might need to be taken into account.

this would be a good idea ONLY if there was a way to control who votes.

Only people that could vote, are people that actually own/played the product.

Other wise these ratings would be useless because when a person sees a poll he will always pick some option either being based on hype or god knows what else.

And this will result in very inaccurate ratings.


I would say no, since there is no way to control that only people who own/used/played the product to actually vote.

That's true. We'd have a heap of wh0res messing a good game rating because it doesn't use DX10 and instead looks great and plays smooth as silk.

Hence a 1000 post minimum to participate. Most people who participate that much in our forums won't pull that ****.

Maybe 1 or 2 will get buy but that's it.
