What happened to the rating system?

Hey there,

So this year i made a preeeeetty bad game (Here is the link btw: http://ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-36/?action=preview&uid=49998)

so i expected to see some soul crushing ratings and some comments. Then i noticed that only one person actually commented on my game (the other one was a friend of mine).

At first i was confused but then i realised it: The rating system disapeared!

I have no idea why it is gone but i know that i want it back. It made LD special to me because i could see how good my game idea was and where i could improve. But now it is gone and nobody plays other games because there is nothing to do. It has no meaning.

 

My question is: Why did it get removed?

Also: Could we get it back please?

    That guy, PoV, he overcomplicating things.

  3. I think what Newan is trying to say is that we as a community were given a choice how we wanted to have this Ludum Dare. In Ludum Dare 35 there was some abuse of the rating system, and so our normal host wanted to cancel the whole thing. (Read more here – http://ludumdare.com/compo/2016/06/08/well-this-is-awkward-2/)

    Someone else stepped up to host and we were given a choice of 4 options, and as a community faced with having no ludum dare this august decided to have it without the ratings.

    THat said others are interested in playing, and I know that my group plan to play and stream the games once we’ve recovered from ludum dare. There is a thread (http://ludumdare.com/compo/2016/08/28/dare-to-play-ld36/) lists individuals who are interested in playing peoples games and giving feedback.

    Also often you can find Ludum Dare streamers who will let you submit a link to your game in their chat.

    So all is not lost, and thanks for asking.
