    If people are too lazy to vote on your debate, your rating gets hit because the idiot you debated against lost too many debates.

    How lovely.

    Oh for God's sake, rating system is not corrupt, it's just "naive", i.e. implemented in the most simple way.  If your rating went down after winning a debate, that's a just bug that needs to be fixed. Have some goddamn patience, I can't solve all the problems and develop all required features in a matter of 3 months.

    I tie with this low-rating-habitual-loser Type1

    So your rating system keeps hurting me every tie brutally because it thinks he really 'tied' with me but NO ONE VOTED

    Well, I believe that's how it's supposed to work according to the ELO formula I took from wiki. Look, I realize it's not perfect but hey, if you have suggestions how to improve or even change the system, please, go ahead, write the tech spec for it with all the formulas and edge cases and etc and we can discuss it with other people and implement it.

    I agree from a strict mathematical perspective. But I wonder if a debate that is tied because it scored an equal number of votes is different - and should be treated differently - than a debate that is tied because it scored no votes. Should such debates be considered null and void, as if they didn't happen?

    Personally I think full forfeit debates should be null and void too since no debate really happened.

    We must have a system that punishes non-voters.

    Yeah, I definitely like the ideas and I think they are rather easy to implement. I'll finish this new feature I am working on and then get back to it. But if I may ask, could you please create a separate topic for that to discuss the change? I don't want to go behind people's back.

    It's hard to tell off the top of head, I implemented it like 3 years ago. I just pretty much copy pasted it from wiki and changed some numbers, I think we have custom k-factor or something. I'd have to look into the code to recall what's what.

    Can you shut up bro. The site is 2 months in development, give me a break. Maybe you tie because you have some stupid beef with him and just spam debates that no one cares about. Go whine cry and bitch about it.

    Ok buddy I was gonna let you tie against him in the rap battle but since you're asking for it I'm gonna vote you as the rightful loser.

    And no, this isn't a grudge vote, but it was an alliance non vote.

    I can suck his dick if I want to and if he wants to and even then could have beef with him. Your statement is homophobic and you're breaking several CoC with your recent posts to me across many threads culminating in this.

    Ok I wasn't implying it was bad. I could easily report you for manipulating votes to favor your friend

    It pisses me off when people talk about stupid things and claim stupid threats to me. I also get angry when they go off on a developer

    ... Well okay then. File that away... note to self: do not go off on a developer in Sup's presence.

    I was thinking the thread title was hyperbole. None of his actual posts in the thread match the intensity of the title.

    It is isn't about the developer, it is about the hard work he does for the site, constantly updating it. If he sat around doing nothing not appointing moderators and having bad glitches, I would be 100% on the wagon

    He has a way of "clickbaiting" his titles. I don't like this because if a new member clicks on the site, the clickbait thing is "CORRUPT RATING SYSTEM, MIKE IS CORRUPT TO CORE" he is clearly extra salty
