    This rating here by dontremindme26, on my Trogdor ride.

    Calls it a family ride.
    Says some of the tracks are reversed.

    None of that applies to the ride in question. And the ratings speak for themselves. I smells a rat..
    So if i were to drop a brick on it, would someone be kind enough to remove this 'rat'? Otherwise it will stink up the place.

    This guy copied my rating word for word. Even the rates themselves. *slow clap*

    edit: for the same coaster, this guy literally stuck my rating through google translate so now its in german:

    2 copy/paste comments by 'vdmeulen' and 'dontremindme26' on my latest upload. It doesn't take them long to infect something..
    Can we remove those please?

    Some people seriously need a kick in the head with a steel cap boot. Might knock some sense into them. If not, we can always do it again until it works. :D
    This rating has nothing to do with the ride.

    Love the 10's but not like his

    I don't believe this.

    dontremindme26 has posted a second copied/spam/stolen comment on my latest ride, not that long after one of the mods removed the first spam comment they left. I'm getting sick of this idiot. They need to disappear for good.
    Can someone please remove that comment and the user (if you're able to do that)? Thanks.

    Two American members copied the review by a German user and pasted it.

    Massssive downrate here =(. Just pluses in the comments.

    Spam rate

    Copied the rating of somebody else and gave it only 0 0 0.
    • CommentTimeJul 23rd 2015
    Underate Has no idea where the park settings tab (hardly our fault) says the file exceeds the max exchange file size (yes, that's in the description) and then underrates even though they've not rode it.

    All of these rates are overrates/copypasterino. I need someone here to download it and find every little thing wrong with it, and rate it harshly so it can be off the highest rated of all time.

    Copy paste by vdmeulen here
    And a severe under rate by that jerk dontremindme26 here

    I don't know why there's such a big spike right now in people leaving copy paste comments. It's probably the worst i've seen it on the exchange. Maybe these people don't know how to use a keyboard, or maybe they only have one arm, so they have to rely on using a mouse..
    I feel bad for anyone who only has a bunch of copied or spam comments on their rides.



    this too

    Is the report button and faces working for anyone? It won't let me report spam ratings.

    Posted By: aw555000Is the report button and faces working for anyone? It won't let me report spam ratings.

    the buttons don't seem to do anything.

    a few under rates and one rate for a different coaster from:
    • CommentTimeAug 10th 2015
    ^Can one of the mods please let Matthew know that these buttons are no longer working. I have a feeling its something to do with the rating system and recent alterations to download limits.
    • CommentTimeAug 12th 2015
    As much as I appreciate that people don't NEED to rate now, it also means barely any one is leaving rates. So lots of downloads yet no feedback. It's a little disappointing if I'm honest.
    Because getting feedback that is copied and has nothing to do with your ride is just what you need..

    You can't force people to give feedback, if you do, this is what you end up with. You'll get better feedback on the forum than in the exchange, in the exchange people just want to download and ride a coaster.
    • CommentTimeAug 13th 2015 edited
    Who says I wanted crap feedback? And I've had nothing on the forum either.

    I just can't wait for NLC.
    • CommentTimeAug 13th 2015
    I'm with ya Arly but we all knew the minute the limit was dropped that a majority of people would stop rating, theres no incentive for doing such. I didn't even know you'd released a new park because you don't have a score and for such a prolific member as yourself that was a real surprise.

    Tbh if people aren't going to rate there is actually very little point to the exchange anymore same with the leaderboards, which imo generated rates as you see a high rating coaster, download it and rate. We have good forums here and I hope they stay but if this site isn't asking people to rate then the exchange is just the same as steams thing with fewer people. Just my 2 cents on the situation.
    • CommentTimeAug 13th 2015
    It's just frustrating. I'm not asking for tonnes of praise or anything. Just a bit of feedback would have been nice. I make coasters for myself primarily but also to share. But if you're not getting any comments at all (whether it be positive or negative) then there is no point in sharing.
    ^^^Did you mean NLC?
    • CommentTimeAug 13th 2015
    I can assure you that your comments aren't going unheard (by me at least). I completely agree with what you guys are saying. From other topics and a previous NLC-cast, you can gather what we are doing about it. Which will really be the answer to the complex exchange problem. As for now, I'm as oblivious as you guys. I never thought uncapping the rates would be a good idea. Like all other exchanges, it doesn't work. We needed a spam filter if anything. I believe it was just a hot-fix, but I'm not sure if there will be any more permanent fixes.

    We will keep you guys updated with anything that we find out ourselves.
    I've been thinking about the rating system for the future NLC. I know there was a mini poll in which most voted against having a set percentage for ratings, but I disagree with this.

    Here's what (I feel) would be an applicable solution. First of all, the required % should be lowered. If I'm not mistaken we need to have over 20% of our coasters rated on NLE, but I feel this should be moved down to 5%. That way, only once and a while when a person finds an exceptionally good coaster, they can rate it and be on their merry way.

    Additionally, I feel that the empty word box is a severe hinderance to good coaster ratings, as is the 300 character limit. I think that should still be an option for those who want to write a more extensive rate (cough cough Altlenny), but as an alternative for those who would spam rate anyways, there would be a 2 minute "questionnaire" of sorts, with preset questions and a much more structured format. It would be a question and users would simply have to click an appropriate response, or multiple responses if necessary. For example (and these are very rough questions):

    1) How would you rate this coasters trackwork?
    (excellent) (average) (full of pumps) (deadly)

    2) How would you rate this coasters support structures?
    (incredibly realistic) (oversupported) (undersupported) (too many flanges) (not enough flanges) (too many prefabs)

    3) How unique was this coaster?
    (very) (not at all) (realistic, but not way out there)

    4) How realistic was this coaster?
    (very) (not at all) (etc, etc)

    Obviously the actual questions would be much more articulate than that, but you get the point. The inputed answers would correspond to numeric data somehow, or maybe show up as taglines for the creator of the project to see.

    Just my two cents.
    • CommentTimeAug 13th 2015
    ^^Glad to see you guys are on board with what were saying and agree that this is not the answer.

    ^I actually like that idea. Perhaps that could be a "simple" rate system then an "advanced" one for just large text box? It would definitely help guide people and provide simplicity/ease to those who don't really want to write about a coaster.
    Though saying that I don't think the percentage should be lowered, 20% is only 1 in 5, 2 in 10, 3 in 15 etc etc. People spend alot of time making good coasters so I think that percentage is very fair. I also think there should be a minimum character limit, though alot of people complain 300 is too much so perhaps lower it a little maybe 150-250? a simple "This is a good coaster" doesn't quite cut it imo.
    ^^ These rating methods sound perfect, even for NL1 tracks that are still uploaded here. The only concern is that NL1 has no flange option - we can't follow a few rules for support structures (too many / not enough flanges). ;)

    Copy Paste Rates

    • CommentTimeSep 3rd 2015
    Why are people still rating like there is a rating requirement when there is none?
    Presumably because spam raters don't bother to read the site news.

    dschoen79's review looks like he pasted a review from another coaster, "O-The originality on this coaster was phenomenal. By this, I mean the layout was something different to Kumba, yet it felt so right. Fantastic layout" This has nothing to do with Kumba! It's a Hybrid coaster! "T-This ride is honestly one of my favourite non themed rides released on nl2 to date. The shaping on it was fantastic, everything from the pacing down to the layout was screaming B&M style" Umm.. This was NL1, and this wasn't B&M style, and It's themed! "A-Whilst maintaining that fluid shaping, you still managed to fit in comfortable G's. I loved everything about the layout. Even some of the transitions had me impressed" This was my first coaster, comfortable G's? Last time I checked there over 10 G's in a single turn. not to mention he says he recommends this coaster but yet he gives it a 0.10 on all 3 levels!
    The other review just copied my old description and pasted it and gave it a 9.40, 9.60, and a 9.50, I don't know if either review rating were real or just spam.

    Could someone please remove this spam comment for me?

    Just goes to show that some people are complete idiots, and don't/can't read. The exchange front page, on the left in big letters.. "Download restrictions lifted"
    You can do everything humanly possible to stop people leaving spam comments, but at the end of the day, there's just no cure for stupid.
    Removed :)

    The Artic rate seems a bit...weird to say the least.

    ^so you´re okay with this?
    It's a review with some legitimate points. Even if those points may not be praising your ride, they are legitimate points of criticism.
