Mod / Game Ratings update:

Due to a need for a better system for members reviews of mods and games.
The new system requires 150 characters post for the review to be counted towards a game or mods overall ranking, by issuing a review and not leaving a comment the review is only saved for that member and doesn't affect the overall rank.

This was also put in place to encourage better communication to developers from members posting reviews.

We will be monitoring this new system but preliminary monitoring shows a positive effect.

Probably is, it changed a few minutes after I logged on, it was just like "SURPRISE!" xD

I like it, I just think it's a bit boxy in the corners, but I'll miss the old one. Honestly, if they had simply made a higher quality version of the old one, it would be enough for me. :)
