With the unranked jam now over, now is the time to play and rate each other's games!
For the next two weeks, all entrants will be able to give ratings on other games. Take some time to play & rate games, and even better write some feedback about it! Constructive feedback is one of the best ways to learn and improve your game design skills, so please dish it out in buckets. While people who didn't enter the event cannot rate games, they can still post reviews.
By rating & commenting (even on Unranked entries), you will gain Karma that will make your game more visible to others. A high Karma gives you more chances to get ratings yourself and reach the minimum of 10 to be classified. Otherwise, you will not get a final ranking!
On October 28th, at 7pm the final results will be released and the winners crowned :)
This also increases the counter of "This Team entry has recieved X ratings so far". So it's not just a visual thing.
Thanks it's indeed a bug we've recently discovered, I think it wasn't there last jam. We'll make sure to delete any fake ratings upon fixing it!
EDIT: Upon looking at the non-entrant votes I'm actually not sure if we should delete them actually. The few people who did that seem to have made honest ratings… It doesn't feel nice to trash the time they spent. Hmmm…
Ok the fix is up. I deleted a couple fishy votes but I couldn't resolve myself to remove them all. Feel free to weigh in if you disagree.
I think that's reasonable. Just getting rid of 10/10's. I don't think the community is in it to cheat, but it's still important to not make it too easy.
Actually you should look into newly created accounts being able to vote:
(I nulled the votes after the screenshot again)
