    Yeah, either only limited screenshots, but no overall score system, or limited threads that can allow for votes...

    The thing is, as many other members said, with no ratings, I lost some of my motivation on the forums and I don't post in Community Screenshots as much anymore until ratings come back.

    It's good to see that someone agree with your opinion. It would be great if it would be possible for someone to show that he agree with you just one click. If only such a thing existed ...

    Just a like button? Bring back ratings that we had before the changes : Like, Awesome, Agree, Funny, Informative, Useful.

    Saying ,,I agree" or ,,That is funny" is annoying. How long we will have to wait?

    It is a shame the ratings were yanked, and an even bigger shame if they never return. If a sanitary and uninspiring forum experience
    is what everyone wants then have at it. I won't be participating.

    The reason why rating are disabled is that some people are spamming to get ratings for what? If there was a kind of leaderboard of ratings (i didn't saw that), maybe this was the reason of problem.

    I think that They should just disable rating in threads like community screenshots. It is the ultimate spam thread.
    Ratings are most important for content creators, as they help to judge if people like their content or not.

    In my opinion the only rating that devs should bring back is the "Like" button, no need of agree, funny and other bullsh*ts. Also no need of a leaderbord and no need to show the number of likes on the members' profile page. Just likes on posts, just like facebook or instagram etc etc

    I wish we could express our opinion with just one click instead of saying 'I agree.'

    and having the option to rate removed in major spam threads like the CST would help, or just a simple like button for those threads would be enough IMHO. there are alot of posts i would love to rate like, awesome, funny, or informative/useful. and I would only post in the CST just because of likes, and i rarely did that anyway

    This is no place to fight with each other (that kind of stuff should probably stay in a kindergarten).
    So you are kindly invited not to do that, as it wastes yours and ours time.

    Cheers

    The thing is not the content of the groups, but the "groups/social system" itself.
    As mentioned in the first post, it's highly flawed, and causes problems/slowdowns to the entire platform having it.
    Creation of new groups have been blocked to avoid that getting worse.
    For now no plans on it (as we already cleaned a good part of the empty/unused groups).

    Cleaned up some disappointing posts.

    If one, two and even three friendly requests do not work, and stuff that is not supposed to be here keeps going on, our tone will change and things would start to get ugly.
    We would kindly avoid reaching that point, so please behave yourself and don't test our patience in dumb ways.

    I think we repeated enough times that, the more time we spend having to clean up bad stuff here, is less time that goes into things like the game or helping other users.

    I feel like the big issue with the roleplay is that lots of the people who join into it now are rather immature and prone to spamming and giving the community a bad image

    I thought with the Roleplay groups if they could be self moderated, but also kept secret as well so they dont show up in the "New Posts" section for non members of the group, its a daft thought, likely never gonna work but I thought I would give my two cents on the matter....
