I don't know if the "fans" function at the upper right hand side of the game page means much, but it seems odd that 787 players have rated the game, as of the morning of this post, while only 47 have identified themselves as "fans" of EiA here. I would have expected to see about 100 players identifying themselves as "fans" given the comments and ratings.

I've never hit the fan button for anything.

It means zip to me - I haven't clicked the 'fan' button for any game, nor do I intend to. It's just one more redundancy, and I'm not looking for chores.

I might look good at closing time, but I'm pure-D ugly in the morning.

Hey Warren,

In addition to all the naysayers' comments, the "fan" option was only added a few years ago,much later than the original site. So, some people may not have thought of going back and re-marking a game.

Thanks, Jason. That helps explain things a bit for me. Clearly not everybody is devoted to giving every form of feedback possible for these games, whether it is the ratings, comments, fan button, recording plays, or getting the microbadge.
