Hello Hypixel Community, myself and the Hypixel Forum Team are creating this thread to discuss and gather feedback regarding the recent change to the neutral ratings on the Hypixel Forum. There are a lot of questions and opinions on the recent change, so we believe it is essential to communicate the reasons behind this update, as well as to discuss the multiple suggestions shared by the community. What are these changes, and what are they for? The changes I speak of are the removal of the Disagree, Dislike, and Rude from the Post Ratings on profiles. This means that while it is still possible to give these ratings, the amount given or received is no longer counted on each profile. The reasoning behind these changes was to actually allow the Disagree and Dislike ratings to be used more freely. The neutral ratings were often perceived as more negative than they should be, due to their potential to accumulate on a user profile and affect their reputation negatively on the website. We also had concerns that this could lead to users avoiding expressing certain less popular opinions to avoid that. We hope that this change can make the neutral rating more into what they are meant to be, a quick and simple way to express an opinion. Naturally, this must come with what many have discussed publicly after this change, modifications to the disagree and dislike limit currently present on the forums. After discussing the matter with the Forum Team, we feel like it would be called for to greatly increase the current limit on disagrees and dislikes, in a way that allows user to use them more freely yet still stops those who attempt to systematically disagree or dislike every single post. We are discussing regarding the neutral rating limit, yet still combat those who wish to spam them in extreme amounts. Since the systematical spam of one particular rating is not unique to neutral ratings, we are also discussing other ratings limits. These are important changes for the Hypixel Community, which is why we feel it is important to discuss the matter directly with the Community, as well as take into account the multiple point our dedicated member want to bring up. If need be, we feel that being flexible and reasonable with these changes is called for, to obtain what is the best match and adapted to our unique community.
