Fixed that for youMyNameHere wrote:An interesting question in my eyes is why there are little to no ratings above 6/10. Do people get envious of each other over profile ratings? Do people do it like me and "opt out" to rate someone else, simply giving a zero for the heck of it? The second interesting thing I noticed is that whenever you assign a new profile a 10/10, the second vote will drive that down enormously. Crown envy everyone?
That's my problem right there heheLeon Demelii wrote:...Because that's like pissing on someone's hard work just because they have an ugly face.
I was considering running my profiles through google translate but i dont think it is a wise idea considering google track record of translating Mantis issues for me

I look for a clear description that is detailed and to the point.
One example is here: http://illarion.org/community/us_charpr ... d=704bc083
I gave this an 8, the description, as i said, is clear and to the point. It is quite simply... A description.
There are none of the characters thoughts and feelings and it doesn't put ideas into the readers head with grand claims and assumptions.
Even without the picture i feel i could "see" this character through the description alone
I can visualise the character (who i have never actually met ingame) so that if i was to meet her i'd understand what i was looking at (colour of scales, does she walk with a limp? is there a particularly hard raspiness to her voice? Any visible markings?)
The story is also very clear and indepth. It is not something that i will know as a character but if she was to explain it to me ingame it would be understood much easier.
The reason i never gave it a higher score was that it was hard to read because the story was a single block of text.
If it was broken up into paragraphs making it easier to read i most likely would have scored it a 9 or 10.
This example isn't meant to criticise the PO or the character but it was merely an example of what i personally look for and the character just happened to be online at the time of me writing this.
I have a few ideas that could go along with the Like button idea. I do like the "Like or don't vote" options as it keeps things pretty positive. However, I would not tie the number of Likes into a rating. Simply list the number of Likes.Robert_Thwaite wrote:So...
After much deliberation we are looking at ways to change the profile rating and any ideas and suggestions would be most appreciated.
In future we will be looking at linking the forum accounts with character accounts so this could well be possible. Not for some time yet though...rakust dorenstkzul wrote:A like or dislike button, which the option to send contstructive criticism to the PO, either via a linked system to the forums, or by some other message system
