Just looked at the new skins at JK2files.com and all off them has avarage user rating of 2-4

What's up with that? Those skins aren't worse then the ones before that got 6-10

I just hope that when my skin would be out, he will get better rating.

Since a certain "Viper" has joined the team I think people are going by his long winded sarcastic reviews.

New poll

Express your opinion there.

It is a bit long, but he'll come over it.

People started to interest more in his reviews then in the file.

I don't bother rating it i mean whats the point it's good cause it's good but it just takes up time i just download them and get rid of the windows open as fast as i can.

Most of them are good cept maby one or two files but most are brilliant.

In all fairness, can you point to a single file and say: "He gave a GOOD file a BAD rating"?

I think there are a couple relevant points already said:

1. He has given good files good ratings.

2. He has happened to review a LOT of bad files.

3. Very few GOOD files come out these days.

He may be sarcastic, but can you say it's fully unwarranted?

But thats not what I'm on about.......

Its the shear LENGTH of his reviews...

And the trying to be clever, it isn't and I'm sure it will start to put people off sending in files soley on the chance he might review it.

No one else trys to be a smart arse whilst making review so why have these 7 - 10 paragraphs of irrelevent comments just to say weather or not he likes the skin...?

I mean... C'mon what was with the whole slide show rubbish..?

He could have mentioned clipping issues and his dislike a lot quicker and shorter than he did, and don't tell me you disagree with that.

Good, I think 9 out of 10 files that get uploaded are a waste of everyones time & disk space. Some n00b puts their name on a ravensoft skin, saves it in paint & goes "download my skin, it's the best ;-)" like anyone gives a damn.

Asty is right, good files are hard to find nowadays & you don't even have to do anything much to make something useful yet this seems to elude 90% of the people that upload stuff.

As far as user rating goes, does anyone look at that? I know I don't. I look at how many times the thing has been downloaded & the date it was released. I think that should be the rating system, the number of downloads & the date it was released should equal the rating.

This is sort of like the topic about "If you are going to do a reskin, at least make it decent" thread (http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=66543) which was debated a bit back & forth but in the end, most of the people seemed to agree with me.

You also should realize that file reviewing isn't the most fun job here at JK2Files.com & they don't get paid to do it. It's one thing for you to say "Hey I would appreciate it if you would go about saying things a different way" or "Would you mind changing this please?" but instead you are complaining about how someone does their job publically. The bottom line is the guy is doing us a favor by reviewing files in the first place. Think about that the next time you complain about how he is doing his job.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I think you meant offense to the guy but it can easily be taken that way with the way you went about expressing your opinion; But then again, what do I know, I'm just some n00b that binds blue special. :-)
