Hi to all,

I would never do this to anyone, but checking Smjj profile (after read many comments about this guy doing the same to many games) noticed he have rating 1891 games with a "1" just in one month (November 2016)!!! and of course with any comment so I ask you please, do not take into account his rating.

Thanks to all
Niko

Hi Hawkeye,

No, I didn't because I think they can't do nothing, not sure about this.

Hi to all,

Here is the answer of the Admins, as I feared, they can't do anything, it's a shame.

Hi Nicolás,

I agree that his ratings are unusual. However we do not police how people use the rating system. Any user can give any game any rating for any reason. Our ranking system takes things like this into account. Even a handful of insincere ratings has no practical effect on a game's ranking.

Disgusting troll in this wonderful place...

A pity we can't apply some ancient war rules on him.

Tolerance, tolerance, tolerance...

I generally give a rating of 7 to any new game I received. That would balance some people off.

If someone actually took the time to play the game it would be obvious by a fair rating.

Not sure who he is but there was a guy on another forum who was thrashing games based on subject matter without giving the actual game a chance.

There are a couple of users who seem to just rate things as a one at the cyclic rate for fun. Fortunately, I think most users just ignore '1' ratings with no comments.

It has to be a bot. A human would not have the time or focus to enter that many rankings in a month. Not sure why someone would program such a thing unless they were testing something out maybe to determine lock-outs or mods reaction.

If it is a bot, Admins. must do something (not only for this game). I do not pay attention to ratings in wargames, but in the others subdomains, yes I do.

Don't undervalue the stupidity and / or evil of some human beings...

Is it just wargames he rates as 1?
If it is then maybe he just doesn't like wargames in general and therefore a valid rating is 1 for all wargames.

Hi Terry,

No he rates "1" to all kind of games.

I do not like Eurogames and I can not think of harming anyone because I just do not like that kind of games, knowing all the effort, work and resources that is used in the creation of a game.

BTW, how do you rate a game?
I didn't find how when searching in the rate 'place'.

Hi Marc,

Select the stars that you think the game deserves.

That would not be remotely valid.

Not that validity is a factor, here. This is simply trolling. And dickitry.

Try not to burnout with this troll. Not so severe, this site is solid and anyone can see his actions have no sense. What he does is annoying, like someone doing efforts trying to spoil a happy party.

But we must go on. I've seen you designed (or have been part of) some Panzer Grenadier games and can imagine your impotency when someone anonimously and without reason undervalue your work.
Don't worry, time will show the quality of your games by their own.

Regards

I just ran across this persons profile. He has almost 7500 games rated, with 97% or something at 1.

I'm really surprised the Admins can't do something about this, as it is obvious he is doing something odd and there is no way he has played any of these games enough to rate them.

I understand not wanting to police the way people rate their games, but this is ridiculous.

It isn't that they can't, it's that they won't.
