I hate when people won't stop to think.
When you see one thing and do not bother to think, to see if it was worth the time spent watching it or if it will be forgotten the next minute.
I don't know if you've understand what I'm talking about, but I'm speaking of those who, facing any animation or game, whether good or bad, give it 10/10 here on Newgrounds.
I hate it because it's no good.
What does it matter to know, through a very short and useless comment, that it was funny to spend some seconds of our life watching that animation or playing that game?
What interest should the author demonstrate in those comments if it's not told what to improve or to be put aside?
Guys, think a bit before giving the highest score to any submission, because that's not the way to improve.
People need to know if their work is good and not only fun. There's a reason why it's called reviews and not only comments.
Fun is good, but quality is better.
Five minutes, it's all it takes to make a good review to any submission, with the aspects that thrilled you or, on the other hand, confused you.
Come on people, let's help the artists of Newgrounds keep getting better.

no one writes reviews without deciding how good it was first. the problem is people write one line reviews that don't give reasons for anything.

EduChico responds:

Exactly. But that reflects their sort of thinking.
If they even can't take some time to show what they think about something, how shall people improve?

I have a [newgrounds] philosophy. I never give bad scores, but I don't just run around slapping tens on everything I see. If the creation appeals to me, and has some value of excitement to it, I'll tell why I like it and give them a ten. Not a nine, six, or a four, always a ten. But there are always some people who choose to create something disgusting, hurtful, or just stupid. These submissions tend to lack effort. And if I find one of said creations, instead of giving a bad score, I just don't write a review. That way, opinions don't cloud my judgement.

No one should get a bad score.
Doesn't mean just anyone should get a good one.

(Updated ) EduChico responds:

But I think we SHOULD give bad scores.
It's the only way we have to learn: through our mistakes
And for some reason there's a 0-10 stars scale, we have to use every single one.
It can be hard to decide which grade to give, but that's no escuse.
I understand your philosophy, but don't agree in totality with it, since giving a good score to something you thought had potential or something, doesn't mean it's good. It should be aknowledged what to improve. And it should be diferenciated between those who are good and those who make very good and even extraordinary stuff.
