Just your typical ex-modDB Staff member floating about on the wings of v4.

Report article RSS Feed Rating System

Posted by Karuto on Jun 10th, 2008

I don't really know how this rating system works. I'm level 10, which makes me barely a member who can vote on MOTY. Yet, here are my contributions:

1) A former staff member with three articles, who participated in a MOTY, and worked as both a Game Auther and Forum Moderator (with three stickied threads).
2) A group in the Top 20 (and was in the Top 6).
3) A tutorial that was at one time the third most viewed tutorial on the site.
4) A member on the site for over 4 years with over 12,000 posts, belonging to 24 groups and having 37 friends and starting (granted, never finishing) several different mods.
5) I have posted 20 different news articles, 8 since v4 came about.
6) Holding userbars as Ex-Staff, Senior Member, and Old Timer, which are labels not chosen by me but by INtense.

So I don't know how things are calculated, but doesn't this amount of activity account for something a little more?

Good point. I think it's all still being fine-tuned and catching up, but I agree you need more points.

I have been constantly active on the site for nearly five years, written eight popular tutorials in the past six months, five released mods, and plenty of contributed tool downloads - and I'm not ranked much higher either.

It can just be that the level system only uses a few of those to boost your level.

The way I see it, does it by how much you upload.

Love the system, I want more points too though :P

I mean, I did write the most read (and commented, though many were my own) review in the history of the site.
