  1. 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.

    Wow thanks for the info!

    Except I'm sure many of us are still wondering why we can't see our own neutral ratings.

    EDIT: Hello, Thank you so much for making this thread. :)
    While your new proposed changes are fine, and I see no technical flaw in them atm, there are a couple questions I have and possible improvements I have to suggest.
    a) Would it be possible for me to view my own dislikes/disagrees/rudes received & given? There are a lot of benefits to that. And other people would be unable to see it, but I would be able to see only my own.
    Or better yet, make it toggleable for whether dislikes/disagrees/rudes show up on your profile for everyone. Suppose I just want to check how many, I can quickly enable it and it shows me, then I disable again.
    b) Will this mean that we, the average user, finally be able to use the Rude Rating? Or will that remain mod only? Because it was originally intended for Well-Known Members. ;)
    c) Will the 100 post requirement to give dislikes/disagrees still be there?
    d) Will dislike/disagree rating abuse bans still be feasible? What if I believe every post on a thread serves no purpose other than a post farm (e.g. "agre").
    e) If rating abuse bans are still a thing, would you automatically receive one for giving over 150 per day? Because the average user probably will not hit that limit.

    Thanks in advance :)
    If I think of more questions I will ask them in later posts.

  13. This will definitely get rid of a lot of the negative atmosphere in the community right now :D



    Oh hey, people who hate the update leaving as much of the ratings as they can to try and make it look like it won't get rid of the negative atmosphere.

  16. I get what they're trying to say. Basically, people sometimes get afraid to voice their opinions bc the opinion could be unpopular and lead to lots of neutrals. Then, everyone would see that said person has a lot of neutrals, and the person would be discouraged from continuing to post those unpopular opinions.

    Thankfully, they're increasing the limit, and adding a limit to every rating if the community wants. I personally enjoy this change

    HOW? the update prevents most (and sometimes all, depending on the time) games of starting, how would anyone that plays the games included like it?
    name some of the positive things from the classic game menu update things please :)
    it doesn't help out the community one bit. it literally just prevents games from starting, which is negative. theres nothing else to it.
    I meant that people that support the classic menu update must not play the games in the classic menu, considering they support preventing the games from starting.
