The further down the list you look, the more squeezed together are the weighted ratings. A single added 5 star rating for Shuffling Around would move it 38 positions up.

Thanks for the spoiler tag suggestion. The post is much more compact since I implemented it.

For 5€, I'll add that 5 star rating.

Shame on you, trying to extort five euro for a rating on IFDB!

I'll do it for 4.

/creates a sock puppet offering $3

Interesting ratings are so low. Obviously the minus-factor is pretty strong at such low ratings too. So even a few 4-stars would move it up.

This gives people some nice motivation to go rate their favorite games, though. And that's always a good thing. Ratings lead to reviews--eventually (?)

Hmm, I don't like the way this is heading. Pretty soon people will be rating games for FREE, and THEN where will we be?

A step away from people testing or reviewing games for free. Quite possibly during times when they should be doing paid work instead. Death to the global economy!

Tsk, tsk. Next people will be actually making and distributing games for free.

Hippies.

I will buck the trend and start charging for everything.

Everyone who reads this post owes me £3. Checks and postal orders to the usual address.

Edit: I just realized that I can get the relevant data from XML versions of browse pages. This reduces the amount of HTML requests greatly, why the strain on the server no longer should be a concern.


Can someone elaborate on this? For example, are there XML versions of this page: http://ifdb.tads.org/random?t=controversy

To my knowledge, only the browse pages can be fetched in XML format. Just add &xml to any http://ifdb.tads.org/search URL. This does not seem to work for the random pages unfortunately.
