Pixel art ratings

We've finally finished the rating system! You can now give points to pixel art pieces based on how much you like a piece. You no longer have to put something in your favorites (unless you want to) to show your appreciation for a piece. Some notes about ratings...
  • Annonymous Rating
    The points you give to a piece are completely annonymous so please give your honest assessment of each piece. We associate all your ratings to you of course, but they will never be made public.
  • Build a Stronger Gallery
    Pixel Joint wants to build stronger artists and one way to motivate people is a little friendly competition. Want to see what people think is the strongest pixel art? Just check out the top rated pieces and take notes!
  • Flexible Ratings
    You can change the rating of a piece at any time so if someone applies a killer update to a piece you can knock them some extra points.
  • Good Karma
    Wouldn't you like someone to rate your piece? Well, take a little time and return the favor!
  • The Future of Ratings...
    Right now the total points are being kept hidden so we can add some other features. You will soon have the option of making your pixel art's ratings private so only you can see them if you so wish. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve the rating system please comment on this news post.
Go ahead and start rating some pixel art. Do it!

I think what you are talking about is very much like a movie rating system which sounds good to me. approve

...But if you don't rate, you won't get point, while you should have, because you have an opinion on that piece.
Why not make three dots avarage, two below, four above, etc?

I suppose, too, that the members list should have the number of pixels they have in their gallery. It's amazing how many inactive people there are! Many have only picked their avatars!

Thx chums! cool

If you want to give em a zero just don't rate the piece I guess. Ratings are just a nice way to give props to the pixel artist without expecting anything in return. Even if you only give them a point or two it's a nice little ego boost. wink

Kaaaaaarma. big smile
