I've come to recruit you to review your favorite maps. At Nibbits we're moving away from the typical ratings (since they're crap), and forcing users to write detailed (at least semi) reviews. The system isn't completely transitioned yet, but you can already review maps. The eventual switchover will remove generic "ratings" from all pieces of content on our site, and replace with with a simplified Like/Dislike system (details will come later). Reviews are going to have a MUCH larger impact on rankings than they do now, and ratings (the weak reviews) will have a miniscule impact.
So for example, if you wanted to review Shuriken 1.4 (the current most popular SC map), you'd hit up the project page*, and select "Submit Review". This is found right below the Description/Change Log, or by clicking the "Reviews" tab. Reviews have some requirements, one being that they must be no less than 200 words, and two that they must be approved by a moderator. The moderation will slightly change, as we're going to tag ratings onto reviews ("I like this review"), so that users can self moderate. For now though, this is our entry-level fix.
Anyways, reviews also give you a nice XP boost (60) once they're approved, and they have the side effect of everyone being in awe of your amazing critiquing abilities. The big "gotcha" right now, is that if you're not level 3, you're not going to be reviewing. Again, these are about quality, and if you haven't been a member of the community its unlikely that you're going to submit quality.
Hope you all enjoy our ever-continuing attempt to improve the mapping community :)
* Note: Project pages are linked most everywhere except search right now, but that will be changed soon.
