I've been working on updating the Retro Game Room pages for quite a while now, I'm finally finished so here's the updates:

Thorough Game Reviews +Viz
You can now write up as big of a review you want and you can earn a lot of Viz depending on the size of the review. You can also rate the game's Graphics, Sound/Music, Addictiveness, Depth, Story and Difficulty (and once enough games have been rated on these categories, I'll make it so you can search for games based on them). You also earn Viz each time your review is rated. Update: You get 5 Viz for each time you use the game's name in your review (limit of 25 Viz for this).

Ability to Rate Reviews and Reviews are sorted by Rating +Viz
You can now rate a user's review on 1-5, 5 being great and 1 being crap. When you rate a user's review, you earn 3 Viz and if you rated the review above a 4, the reviewer also gets Viz (and the reviewer will receive a notification that you rated their review if you rated it a 4 or up, if you gave it a 3 or below, they wont know who did it). The reviews are ordered by rating so the helpful reviews will show up first and the pointless reviews will be hidden.

Ability to Rate Screenshots and Screenshots are sorted by Rating +Viz
Just like the ability to rate Reviews, you can now rate user submitted screenshots. When you rate a user's screenshot, you earn 2 Viz and if you rated the screenshot above a 4, the screenshot taker also gets Viz (and the screenshot taker will receive a notification that you rated their review if you rated it a 4 or up, if you gave it a 3 or below, they wont know who did it). The screenshots are ordered by rating so the awesome screenshots will show up first and the pointless screenshots will be hidden.

Reviews are now linked to threads +Viz
When you go to create a review for a game, you're brought to a page which looks similar to making a thread, that's because you're actually doing both when you submit a review. The 'review thread' will be available on the RGR game's page and also available in the 'Reviews' sub forum in the 'Retro Game Room' forum, this gives the staff the ability to more properly monitor reviews and to trash ones that break the rules. This also means you earn lots of Viz when people reply to your 'review thread' and it also means that your reviews get to have their own title.

The header is now the same as the index header
Which means you have all the options on the RGR game pages as you would on the RGR index pages. You can search for games from game pages better now.

A few layout updates:
-Reviews have their own section now and are easier to sort through
-User comments have their own section now
-All of the scrollable boxes are a little smaller in size so that they can properly fit on a 1024x786 monitor
-The header of the index and game pages is a little more well organized and also a 'select' and 'unselect' all button for when choosing which system to search



It'd be great if you guys could go through and start rating screenshots and reviews you see for various games and also submit a few of your own! (keep in mind that their are daily limits on how many reviews and screenshots you can rate per a day).

Please reply to this thread with any feedback or problems regarding the changes.

the_casualty : Yeah the review update is definitely something I've wanted to do for a very long time. Before no one could write a detailed review nor did they get any credit or proper recognition for doing so. Now if you write a review, it gets good exposure on the game's page and displays as a thread (and also shows up in your profile in the game reviews section...but that's nothing new).

I'm hoping to see many reviews added, hopefully this is all enough incentive for users to write up reviews, it'll be great once most of the good games have reviews and ratings. It also makes the games a little more interactive since you can discuss a person's review.

Upon submitting my first review I have noticed a couple of errors.

1. If you are making a review, then click "Preview" to view your post, then click submit, it makes it a normal thread not attached to any games.

2. I think the review should automatically be filed in the Review section. Don't know if you want to do that, although it would be more convenient.

Well, I figured this would be a great chance to be more critical in my review of Toy Story. However, upon updating my review, it gave me an SQL Syntax error and said warning. Got it to work the third time somehow, but still with a warning. Now I have a couple copies in the forum with the same title, but some are blank.
Oh, and it also apparently didn't add in the numbers I had for graphics, etc.

Davideo7 : Not sure exactly, but it was a while ago. So, I copied and pasted what I had, edited it, and added more. Why, did the copy/paste ruin me? I guess I shouldn't be so lazy.

Davideo7 : I noticed that on the game page where it shows your review, it shows the forum formatting tags. Not sure if there is any way around that, just an FYI.

I forgot to mention that those of you who have already reviewed a game, you can turn your review into a thread

I'm not sure if it was the user's fault or not, but I found two reviews that don't have a title. It makes it a bit harder to view the review thread . The two that I found are from the same user. This shows all of the threads he has made:

http://www.vizzed.com/vizzedboard/forum.php?user=66969

EDIT: Turns out both of those threads came from the same game. I think when he edited his review, it created a second thread.
