I’m not sure if this has been brought up, however I think it is a large issue that we should deal with.
As everyone knows, the comment section on games and the catalog is FILLED with spam, and ontop of that, the rating system has ways to bot it to either mass-‘like’ or ‘dislike’ games which is becoming quite frequent in attacks towards developers, or to boost game ratings for personal benefit. Also, the comment section should be a place where we can discuss the games/items in depth, receive feedback, etc, but with the amount of spam and the lack of ability to write more then a few sentences sucks.
My idea is a new way to rate and comment. First I’ll start with the ratings, which also ties into the comments…
When you like or dislike a game you obviously played it long enough to come up with an opinion, if not then you’re just randomly judging the game. We should have it so you’re able to comment why you did or did not enjoy the game, have pop up, this way it’ll encourage players to give feedback more on the game which will in term help the developer of that game. If the player doesn’t want to comment, there may be just a ‘Skip comment’ box.
With commenting also we should have it you you have to click one of those ‘I’m not a robot’ things, or something of the sort. This would immensely cut back on spam and botting. Also with commenting as said before, users should have the ability to comment wayyyyy more then currently, I hate when I’m trying to type up a reply in my game comments to someone but can’t even get a few sentences in without it being filled. Finally I think, like RBXdev, facebook, twitter, etc their should be something like a ‘Like’ button that bumps it up, that way it filters out random comments and the remaining spam; and final final idea is a Reply button. I see tons of users trying to reply to another with @tmir or something, but the reply never gets seen because once you comment you never know if someone replied to yours or not. A very simple reply, like, and updated rating system would go a long way with the Roblox community I think.
Feel free to comment anything else you’d think would go along with this idea, or what should be tweaked about it. Thanks for considering.
