This topic is for operators and surfers to post questions about the new review system that is in place.

Here are some Facts:

1) Only one rating and review per Chan per IP adress
2) You can come back everyday vote again.
3) Rankings are based on average review score and several other factors (a secret formula).
4) Reviews and ratings can not be deleted.
5) Star ratings will show up in Google search results when someone searches for a chan that is listed on TopChan.
6) The review/ratings system rewards well designed chans with quality content not those who can load a button the most times from different IP addresses.

Overall the point is to offer chan users a better way to discover new chans and drive more traffic to everyone's chan.

Hum, I think the "review" thing is extremely easy to cheat. Just see the reviews of the chan in #1, LOL.

yes pretty easy to cheat, the first place http://topchan.info/reviews/Jordi has over 600 reviews, the chan isn't even in english

Average Rating: 5 / 5
Number of Ratings: 651

it's obviously a bot, you can tell by the "comment reviews" admin you should ban it.

All stats should be reset. All vote stats, anyway. The owner of the site in 1st has spamvoted his shitty site for a year. It doesn't even get more than 50-200 uniques a day.

This retarded shit: http://topchan.info/rate-chan/hanukan3 has signed up multiple times with random bullshit names. It's nothing. It's a single page with a bunch of domains.

Yeah, seems like that idiot was attempting some type of cheating by embedding the gateway page in an iFrame. Not sure how or if the cheat was working but I added in some code to prevent the gateway page from being embedded. If anyone sees any problems with it, let me know.

I want to say that the reviews are so easy to cheat that there are chan owners that make bad reviews behind proxies only to bring the good chans to the bottom.

The review method would be great if there were no cheating, but this is not the case. Also, people who review and rate are mostly chan owners and not casual visitors who visit chans and rate them, so the results are not objective at all. Sorry to say this, but it's the truth.
