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.

I get your Images for your page, also I get your news Updates such as The Recent War Thunder CDK Page you made.

Also get news when you Make a New Group such as the Greenlight group.

Don't worry the only Secret stuff I got is being made aware of DBolical's ramen noodle and coffee tech that powers your servers :P
