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.

We added some more groups to track crowdfunding and steam releases, join in and track the groups to get the news you want to see!

Hey TKAzA I only have one thing on my Mod DB 2014 wishlist,

That is to extend the review Character limit from 2000 to 4000.

Is that an Unreasonable request?

Some times when I write reviews there is alot more I want to say but I can't so I have to edit things out :(
