    That is the super mod's decision. And Darky has to be here. Through there's 0.0000001% chance that the rating will be taken back. We almost lost Vexorian because of that. I say No.

    The rating system was flawed and corrupt, people voting each other's resources down out of spite, people giving 5's on resources that didn't deserve it. Overall it was a worthless system and was removed justly so.

    JetPack hit the nail on the head there. it was a bad system and the majority of the site agreed it needed to be deleted. and it did.

    so NO, not gonna come back.

    Yes, people were not using the rate system correctly. Of course, people can have different opinions, but when a resource is rated 5 by 90% of the people, and one guy reaches there and votes 1... there's something wrong here. And that's exacly what happened to Vexorian. Even today, I can remember most of Vexorian's words. I say No and No. The removing of that system reduced the number of flamers. At least on my presence.

    As VGSatomi said on those old topics abou this we did lost Vexorian but he came back when the Darky was here and deleted the voting system. Stop talking about this there has already been enough discussion about it. Read all about it here: http://www.wc3sear.ch/viewtopic.php?t=12157&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0

    Anyways, vexorian this, vexorian that, also consider that the only one able to remove it was Darky29, the owner of the site, and he decided to do so.
