    Hello there gamers,
    Just a few weeks after our previous announcement I am very happy to be back again with a huge giveaway and some updates to our reputation system!

    Regarding the Reputation System


    In our announcement at the start of this month, we announced that we would be purging all feedback remaining in our system that users have failed to upload evidence for, prior to this date. After hearing our community’s objections, this was cancelled. However, there are still concerns that need to be addressed and so changes must still be made. To tackle this, we drafted a new set of changes that attempts to work around the concerns of our older members who don’t want to lose their feedback and offered up the following suggestion for community consideration: https://www.mc-market.org/threads/544506/


    The reception was significantly more positive than before, however there were still objections to some of the details, preventing some users from agreeing. We’ve spent the last two weeks communicating with those that had remaining concerns, as well as explaining why changes are necessary: https://www.mc-market.org/threads/545300/

    Prior to 2019, the reputation system didn’t require evidence to be uploaded in order to author feedback. This was widely abused in order to boost totals, and for the past four years, since the start of the reputation system, our staff team has combated that abuse by asking that evidence be provided whenever a report is received on feedback and deleting any feedback where evidence was not available to support the claims being made.

    A change is necessary because as time went on and continues to go on since legacy feedback was authored, maintaining evidence for that feedback becomes more difficult for our users, and thus more difficult to expect. Many older members, not wanting to lose their feedback, have requested that we stop checking it for abuse, allow all remaining feedback from that system to exist immune to any moderation, whether it be in line with past, present or future policies.

    There is clearly a danger in doing this, even if the abuse of our previous system hadn’t been as rampant as it was. Simply making any content immune to moderation, removing the community’s ability to report it for rule violations and removing our ability to investigate it is dangerous. In order to do this as we intend, we’re going to need to separate the totals for legacy feedback from feedback still subject to our rules and moderation’s enforcement. Moreover, we’re going to need to provide a warning to our users, especially our newer users who only know the current system and would otherwise be left to assume that there’s no difference.

    The main complaint that we saw from our community members in regards to the suggestion was not displaying legacy feedback totals by default and forcing users to opt-in to seeing them. In consideration of this, we’re removing the toggle completely and displaying legacy feedback totals by default to all of our users. This means we won’t be able to prompt new users with a warning regarding the history of legacy feedback nor the fact that it isn’t being moderated and checked for abuse anymore. However, we will still be providing that warning in a clickable info box adjacent to the totals.

    We will be watching this announcement closely for feedback, and if there are no outstanding complaints regarding these proposed changes, then we will be proceeding at the start of January.

    Additionally, we have another suggestion thread out for providing the community with another total for measuring a user’s activity and interactions on our platform. Please give it a moment to read and provide your thoughts: https://www.mc-market.org/threads/547572/
    Thank you all for a great year and good luck with winning!
