Un-fair Server Rating
« on: Jul 06, 2007, 11:18 pm »
Hello, as you may think this topic is about an Un-fair Rating.
Well, I'm the admin of FogRO, and here's my problem.
I find that someone might have "attacked" FogRO's Ratemyserver, with a bad rating (10).
One of the reasons I think this might be an attack is because FogRO was #1 on High Rate, Server Rating, and now are 100 on that rating, and also we just had an 100 Rating, so that would leave us exposed to everyone on the website at the time (Latest Server Ratings).
Also the comment says
Quote
i don't like this server gms kick you if u say dont keep spamming SUPER LAGGY SERVER! DO NOT PLAY
For one, the server isn't "Super Laggy," I've asked many of our players about the very matter. Many of them have stated that they experience no lag (Minority), or little lag (Majority). None of them said it's "Super laggy" or close to it (I'm able to supply chat logs). Also the GM's don't kick you if you say "dont keep spamming", which aren't (even if I changed the dont keep spamming bit in the search) aren't in the chatlogs. And an @kick, or /kill isn't in the atcommand logs, which I can also supply.
Well, this is an large post for me but I just wanted to state the story, also I believe some players Reported the comment.

Update: I found out that he also GM's for anothe server (Check his first review, which is the server he GM's on, well the forums of that server say he GM's there, so he GM's there), which could also make this a possible attack on our Ratings.
Edit: If you guys think it is an attack, or not a full rating, you can delete it, that's basically what I posted this for, to see if you could delete it, but if not, then it's all good, and my topic was moved to Server Reports!
Thanks for reading this large post to the end. ^^

FogRO was NOT #1 on High Rate, i think you don't understand the list sorting by default.

Anyway, case handled.  That was someone that made at least 3 accts with proxy to rate one server.

Thank you for reporting.

This is one issue that can't be resolved. If you put your server in the open and put it on a rating and review, then this things are bound to happen. It's just something you have to deal with.

That's true, and when you get spammed with bad reviews that means you made enemies.  I always say, there are fake 100/100 and there are fake 10/100 so they should average out. 

But by reporting to me I could give the case a second look see if it's an abuse from the same person etc or not.  I do keep an close eyes and try to delete non-sense reviews i.e. "this server SUCKS" - 10/100 or "join join join THIS SERVER OWNZ" - 100/100
