Ok, anyone else but me seems to notice a problem with the front page? More specifically the latest reviews section...

Isn't there a limit on reviews per day or something? Soon enough that whole list is gonna fill up with that one.

I think it was bad form for all who posted there. I like Chia, but the review section is NOT a chatroom. If something absolutely needs to be addressed, make a forum thread, DO NOT spam everyone else's reviews off of the review section just to get in a word or two. That's BS and unfair to the other Muds whose reviews got spammed off of the main page.

I was wondering, why when a mud get's that many reviews does it show up that many times on the front page. All the links go to the same thing, a list of reviews for that mud, so wouldn't it make sense to have only one link at a time per mud on the front page, no matter the number of reviews.

Maybe this is impossible to do though, don't know.

Couldn't a command be added so that only one or at most 2 reviews from one mush could go to the last on the front page while for the others you have to click on the info for that individual mush? People wouldn't necessarily have to be limited in their ability to comment on a picticular game this way but everyone would have equal representation on the front page

Considering the dates, times, and content of the reviews....

I smell something fishy. Especially considering their last review was on the 5th of August, then they suddenly got, what, _just_ enough reviews to fill up every review slot on the front page?

If you look at the contents of what went up, it's hardly a chat board. There was a negative review, and someone responded (a little flamish honestly), and then a second review, which drew another two responses (rather well done in my biased opinion). It's not an attempt to fill the list but a small exchange of countering reviews.

That said, the idea of limited latest reviews to one per game is not necessarily a bad one.

I saw one post that wasn't a review - it was just someone named Cassiopia (or however they spelled it) trashing the mud because of 10 minutes spent in the newbie section of the game. I saw one person posting another NON-review in response, and I saw 2 actual reviews that seemed like the posters had at least some measure of literacy and understanding of what a review is.

The fact that they all showed up in the same day is actually a good thing. It means the trash and the flame won't show up 3 days later, thus continuing to bump other reviews down the list.

All at once in one nice quick and easy rush - good for everyone because you know they're not gonna do it again the next day and the day after and the day after ad nauseum.

My issue was with the first post in question and the response. Once again boys and girls:

THE REVIEW SECTION IS NOT WHERE YOU DISCUSS GAMES. IT IS WHERE YOU REVIEW THEM. IF YOU WISH TO RESPOND TO A REVIEW, DO IT IN THE FORUM.

Hello? Does anyone hear me? Testing - 1 2 3 1 2 3...

Muh.

Nods Fionn.

Limiting latest reviews shown on the front page to 1 is an excellent idea, and...

Who am I kidding? I'm PM'ing Syn about it right now. You might want to do the same, Fionn
