u should allow user ratings for games and also have a top-ten staff chosen list and a top-ten user chosen list. It'll make it much easier for ppl to discover games like Liero, which is the best game on this site.

I think that's 1/2 of what he's talking about. He also wants, like, a drag-down window that has the numbers 1-10. You pick it, and the average will be the "user-rating".....................and once again, emmzee has taken FOREVER to respond to this topic...............*sigh*........

Guys, I am in school full time. Dogbreath is officially in charge of the board now that he has admin access. I'll stop by here as often as I can, but please don't expect that I'll reply to all topics.

As for the ratings issue, it's certainly a good idea. However implementation of it is a different story. None of the game listings are stored in any kind of database, they're all hard-coded HTML. I would have to go through and manually edit all of the almost 300 links to add voting code ... this isn't something that I'll be doing anytime soon. ;) One reason why I added the Game Index page was to highlight the highest rated games on the site ...

Of course, it would be nice to put all the games into a database. If only I had had the forethought to design the site that way back about 3 1/2 years ago .... :rolleyes:
