I noticed alot of members with the most points this week have only rated movies & not reviewed them. http://www.filmcrave.com/ member_stats.php
The top points member of all time has also done the same thing making it impossible for people like myself & others who rate & review movies to move up to the top of the list.If nothing is done about this now it will make it more difficult for current & future members to move up in rank.It also takes the fun out of collecting points if you're a person trying to move up the list because the people ahead of you are cheating so there's no chance of catching up.I've also noticed someone else posted a similar topic as well so I'm not the only one

I deleted the second post - the topic is still there, but it shouldn't show any comments. Anyway, we are aware of the issue and are looking into it. We want to keep things as fair as possible for both existing and new members - it's something that is not an easy fix, but rest assured we are researching solutions to the matter at hand. 01/12/2012

Full reviews are worth 5 points.  If a person wrote a full review and rated the movie, that is 6 points.  Far more than just rating the movie.  People who watch a lot of movies and write full reviews for all of them will be on the top of the points. 01/12/2012

Thanks Chris.I'd love to see something done about this.I'd really hate to see this site turn into another livingsocial.When they were a movie & other review site I was a movie member & was ranked #4 in reviews.After awhile new members joined & rated movies but didn't review them, pushing me to #8 or 9.I was never able to get any further & I wasn't the only one. 01/15/2012

Nick, I understand the ratings system.I'm talking about the members who rate movies but don't review them making it harder on us members who do the right thing & rate & review movies.Not just getting ahead by rating them

There is nothing we can do to analyze and prove whether a user's ratings are legit or not.  We simply don't have the time or resources as a free-use website to try to be movie rating cops.  All that I'm saying is that if you rate and write a full review, you get 6 points instead just the 1, so over time you can beat members who only rate movies 6 fold. 01/15/2012
