Also, this way, if someone decides to troll neg, they can copy / paste the troll neg explanation to the mods and have it removed.
This has been suggested a number of times over the years and has been shot down every time for a number of reasons. First, the pos/neg system really isn't worth the trouble of extra coding. Second, as zepdude pointed out, if you require an explanation, then that explanation will just be a bunch of gibberish or swear words. Sure, it could be reported and purged, but that also creates extra work for the moderators besides myself who actually do things. Third, people simply need to do their best to ignore whether negative votes were cast by trolls or not and focus on improving their writing. If you want feedback or proofreading, there is a thread for that in this very forum. Don't put stock in the pos/neg system if you think it's broken or stupid. Just ignore it and seek out legitimate advice. You can find it if you want to.

I'm pretty sure we're allowed to rate leaked stuff, just not review it

Saw a comment in the facebook thread concerning the pos/neg system about having only negs and no pos function. While that idea obviously won't work, what about this:

Allow users to pos only and, in lieu of the pos to neg ratio, count the pos numbers like a score (if we must have a system). That way, if anyone wants to provide negative feedback, they'll at least have to post "gay" instead of just clicking a button that they think means it.

What does it take around here to get people to recognise sarcasm?

This idea is, in fact, no better than having just negs. I'd argue that the majority of pos votes are of the "just because we're buddies" or "I didn't read it, but, eh, you're a decent user" varieties. Therefore, there is arguably more abuse of the pos count than the neg count. Of course my evidence is weak, and is merely conjecture, but really... you either have both, or you have nothing at all.

I also really hate to jump in on the pos/neg train but this review has been troll negged like something serious. I'm admittedly not a great writer but fuck it isn't that bad.

Keep the system the way it is, I get troll negged a ton but my rating is still 87% so as long as you write well enough it should at least be in the 80s
Plus it doesn't matter anyway

I agree that it doesn't matter but seeing "10 of 30" is like a dick in my ass.

Recspecs don't worry about it, your reviews are good. It's just sputnik has become overridden with alts lately.
Also can someone take care of that damn BruceWayne alt it's getting on my nerves.

Would you guys be able to take my review down? It's horrendous, especially compared to my reviewing standards now.

Got it

Of course it was sarcasm (never said it wasn't), I just thought I could pull a constructive idea from it. C'mon, man.

I mean, if you really care about the pos count, you're probably the same kind of person that currently cares about the pos to neg ratio. Neither would particularly mean anything, this would just get rid of the troll negs and butthurt feelings and force those with negative feedback to voice it, while leaving the option of an "I like you" button that boosts the ego for those that feel they need it.

Not that I really give a damn about this, but lots of people seem to and it's a thought.

Skeletor/Exhorder/100otherusernames is back and is spamming comments on dozens of albums all at once. I don't know if there's a rule against it, but the whole main page is filled with his new alt NOTHINGLEFT commenting on a shitload of albums.

Anyways, he was banned by Dev recently so I think he should be taken care of: http://www.sputnikmusic.com/profile.php?name=NOTHINGLEFT

Hehe, I had a second account awhile ago. I'd like to get all the ratings deleted on it, for the sake of fairness.

Troll review that doesn't describe the music in the slightest (also the 3 out of 32 should be a dead giveaway as well)
