Thanks to all whom have voted. It has given a bit of insight into where audience priorities are. Certainly some of the top items will be implemented. Some are right around the corner with a site refresh in testing. ;) Others will need to be fleshed out a bit more.

I wish I saw this before. I would have voted for watching hacks and also to favorite and up and down vote hacks. Much better than waiting for someone to write out a review.

What good are upvotes if you can't learn exactly what people like/dislike, or if there's a stray bug that never got squashed?  And would the presence of votes mean less or more would write a review?

(Not saying I hate the idea, but no one really got to talk about most options until now.)

Hacks/Translations/Utilities/Documents currently do have upvote/downvote capabilities. In every review there is a field for "Recommended" or "Not Recommended". Ta-da.

I can see potential value for the ability to recommend or not recommend without writing out a review.

I kinda want to see the ability to report issues from the hack/translation page, instead of only Review. Would help in some cases

That has great potential, but how this would work is the question.

You can freely edit entry/information issues on all hacks/translations, or flag as non-compliant if it fails at the basic guidelines. Not sure what else you need...

I can actually see the potential going both ways.  Not that there are a ton of folks around here that I think would do this, but I could definitely see a member/hacker tick off some people on the boards who then mass spam bad reviews on their hacks to make them look terrible.  Not like it couldn't be undone either, but it might just be better to avoid the possibility altogether.

I personally like that we actually have to talk about the hacks content a bit when writing a review.  It can give folks a better idea about what to (or not) expect about the patch, especially if the patch description is a bit disingenuous (rare here, but I've definitely run into it).

I want every single of the snes hack collection to be updated to allow the possibility of downloading no header ips or bps.  :P


Also the guys at retroarch wanted a DAT file with the crc32 or md5sums of hacks (either the file after hardpatch or the patch file itself, it wasn't clear). I may not like how every other feature in Retroarch is buggy or halfassed but can't complain when they're pushing standardization, even if this feature would be fully broken for more than 2/3 of the translations i use (i modified them with ipsbeheader to work without a header, i combined ips, i softpatch only, i have patches more uptodate or older than the dat etc).

I could see this working in regards to hitting a button "Report Issue" where it sends the message direct to the author of the patch. Of course this would nto work in regards to Anonymous authors but there are not too many listings under that.

That would quickly be abused and authors would be flooded with "The emulator won't run the IPS file!" and "it doesn't work!!1!!" and "Can you translate Game X next!?" messages.

Sadly you are probably right...

The login prompt on RHDN pages needs to include a registration link, or else the main site needs to incorporate Login/Register links in the top bar just as the forum does.
