I remember that, I even gave an update or two about new illegitimate ratings. LOL It would've been much easier if the album had been added the day of/before release.

^ Thanks :-) I'm glad that my fears that it would be a second "Virtual XI" were put to shame. I'm looking forward to reading other people's reviews.

Has anyone invesitgated this guy yet?
 
 
He's actually stating in his very low-rated non-reviews (non-reviews, because they don't review albums, merely state his intent) that the reason he's low-marking some albums is not because they're bad, but because he wants to frig our rating system to give higher visibility to other bands!
 
I can't believe he's actually telling us that!
 
The road to hell is paved with good intentions - I believe his intentions are good, it's just an abuse of our system, and frankly, to see Lovedrive get less than 5 stars MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL... Wink
 
 
OMG - he's half-star rated Sin After Sin, Van Halen, Forged In Fire and a ton of classics just to frig our system. I think he needs educating - trouble is, I would use a large breeze block tied to a baseball bat to perform said edcuation...

Wow, that's really sad. I can't believe someone would give albums that they consider "good" 0.5 stars because it's "ranked too high"... really sickening. Ermm

Has a reviews guideline/agreement been established?  If so, I can't seem to find it.

Nevermind.  I found them: http://www.metalmusicarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=180&title=reviews-guidelines

I guess Phil should add the link to the initial post in this thread since it says "Coming Soon" where the link should be.

Downvoting just for the sake of downvoting certainly is unacceptable.

Hi, folks! Does anyone notice what the user named emersonbg is doing? After almost every review posted he puts 0.5 stars to the album and I'm sure that this guy has no idea what he is voting for. After my first review in this site I noticed that this man is checking the top rankings in different sections and votes with 0,5 stars for almost every new album there. Unfortunately there is no simple decision in these sort of situations. I guess there are many like this guy.

We've already seen this guy, he says he does it to bring down the rating of an album that he thinks is rated to high. Also since it is a rating it is not worth as much.

So Master Of Puppets deserve 0,5 stars because it's overrated?!? I can agree but how can he explain that minutes after review he ranks something with 0,5 without even knowing what this album is. When I don't like any band I just don't vote for it, it's easy. I understand that every single user is important, but guys like this one should be banned immediately.

I believe I mentioned him a little while ago in the collab section.... technically he hasn't broken any rules as far as I know. His opinions and logic may be flawed, but as long as he's not putting the same ratings on more than one account, I don't believe it's ban-worthy material. His ratings are often distasteful, but we should also keep in mind that ratings are worth almost nothing once an honest collab/user review is submitted. I think a collab review is worth 20x, where as a rating is only 1x. Correct me if I'm wrong, of course...

When someone explicitly states that this is what they are doing, then it's an abuse of the system to my mind, and the user should be banned (after reminders, warnings, etc) and all ratings/reviews deleted.
 
It's one thing to vote something low because you don't like it, which is fair enough, and another to deliberately try to frig the ratings system. Even if the votes don't count for much, the principle sucks.
