    It had 90 votes 20 minutes ago and it was rated 93% give or take.

    And there are more than that.
    And most of the other games have two or three votes.

    it's not the system, it's the people. Â
    in all seriousness this will be fixed in due time.

    400 people visited the site to vote a single game, I don't really get it [​IMG]

    It's probably one or few people that are entertained by messing with votes!

    I think we should actually remove the Ranking because the system we have now doesn't work [​IMG]

    The Ranking system divides the good games from the shovelware, it's always good to have it, only if you guys could track down that voter and ban his arse!

    Well, I think that Costello and Narin are doing something about it! It probably isn't easy, but it's one of the problems that we have, and it needs to be resolved!
    Hopefully it'll happen soon [​IMG]

    That sort of never made that much sense to me, I would figure a system like that would be open to abuse and stupidity. I mean for regular polls here we can only vote once, then thats it. I would have thought that voting for a games rating should have the same restriction.

    The ranking system is crap. I remember seeing great games getting 20% and etc. Wtf? We really would be better off without it.
