Is it true that leaving a low score on a foundry mission is reason for somebody to be reported? Or are the concerned authors merely speaking of reporting the less than flattering comments that may be associated?
If it's bad that we leave a one star, what number of stars are acceptable?
I want to know so that I don't get in trouble. Do I need to go turn any poor reviews into 3 star ones?
What sorts of thoughts are permissible when reviewing a mission.
is no different than the many unmoderated posts I've seen lately from some resident, sarcastic folks on this forum. The second post is somebody voting their displeasure at the system, not an attack on an individual.
Please let us know if there is an official minimum rating we're allowed to give and not surprise us later with warnings, thank you.
I'd be mad about both. Someone gave them an unfair rating without playing their mission which is supposed to reflect on the quality of that mission. Wouldn't you be mad?
EDIT: I dunno whose mission the review is for but I know I wouldn't like people saying I sit in front of my computer in my underwear eating hot pockets and not having a job. For your information I am very much employed!
IMO if you're giving the person a bad rating and being reasonable "this mission is boring all you do is water flowers for 30 minutes" you don't have anything to worry about.
Personally I've had plenty of 1 star ratings but if the person leaves a review saying why they think it is a poor mission well...that's just too bad for me. Obviously there's something that someone didn't like and maybe I should fix it.
In your example (the first review)...making personal attacks is always against the rules.
I got one like that on my spotlight today, but, I'm in the position where it didn't hurt me. But, the top one there though is particularly malicey and probably in violation of harassment beyond just the 1 star thing.
I'm going to need to stand by you in asking for some clarification on this, even if he has to tell us via PMs rather than posting it here.
My problem is how divorced from the reality of the situation is. They're not being forced to do anything.
But you will always have someone who hates everything you do. It's one of those things you need to accept when you put it out there. But these are just dumb protest votes. And last I looked at the ratings, the five and four stars far out numbered the one stars.
Report the ones with the jackass comments and ignore the rest, I say.
