I want to remind registered members that in order to sue a recommendation image your review must be of proper length.
If the map lasted 15 minutes and you write a short paragraph and use a recommendation image, that’s fine.
However, if the mod last over two hours and you write a short paragraph and add a recommendation image, that image is removed.
I don’t expect everybody to write detailed, in-depth and insightful reviews but if the best you can say after playing something for a few hours is “great mod, loved it”, that’s not enough to warrant a recommendation image.
The image is supposed to be a visual representation of a proper review, not a replacement for it.
If all this seems a little harsh, it’s because I want to avoid situations like ModDB where people can come along and rate something a 10 or 1 with no justification. That makes my faith in their system zero.
I want people to really trust the system here. Yes, you might disagree with my “soft (I say passionate) reviews, but at least I try to justify that recommendation.
I have emailed a few people over the years, but haven’t received a reply.
If you have posted short reviews recently with recommendation images, you should check to see if I have removed it, because I probably have.
If anybody has a problem with that, it’s pistols at dawn!
