Got an idea out of nowhere. As for reviewers, we should have gamerscore as well.

Are we talking about a value that is separate from Makerscore that represents a specific kind of contribution to the site? Reviews are already among the highest-value MS reward of any single contribution a user can typically make to the site.
I think what they mean is that users can give a score without an overseen submission, and that this is an additional score, separate from the review score.

Like Reviewscore 3.0 - Average User Score 4.0 stars

That kinda thing. Is it?
Uh you really need to elaborate on this, no one has any clue what you're suggesting TwoFace lol.
I know exactly what he means. It would be a very bad idea hahaha. It would cause so much drama. It'd encourage way more politics than we need.

Pretty much, what two means is. 5 star review gives you x points, 4 start gives you y, etc.

No problem, I do.

Imagine you write a review and others can rate it based on how helpful or well-written they find it (or based on whether they think your review sums up the game's content in a proper way). Whenever your review is rated by others, you get gamerscore for it, which is a separate value displayed next to the makerscore on your profile.

Nope, that's not what I mean.
I don't think we need the gamerscore part if the point is to inform people how helpful or true a given review is (just use... makerscore). But this is only useful in a more automated setting like metacritic/steam where reviews are way more frequent and aren't checked by staff.

Personally I'd like things to get more automated, but I feel like that's a different problem to solve.
Makerscore is made to encourage people to make stuff for the site. To engage in the community. To share your stuff with others. There's no need for gamerscore.
i have no idea whats going on im out

Yeah, but don’t we have comments for that if someone found your review helpful and they can let you know that way? I mean, I kinda like the idea of being rewarded a bit extra for writing a polished, helpful review, but getting additional makerscore out of that would probably favor some of the more lucrative reviewers around here and can be easily exploited by some. The system is fine the way it is.

I'm not sure we have enough of a population of users for that kind of setup to be really effective. In practice, it's likely to just be either ignored or abused.

OH!!! I get it! He's saying that we should have two different types of scores so that we can differentiate between people who just participate on the site and people who actually create content.

Which is classism...
And you can't get Makerscore without actually giving something to the site...
So gamerscore would be really redundant.

What we really need is CommentScore. Imagine you make a game, and someone writes a review for it, and then people comment on the review, and then others can rate the comments based on how interesting and witty your post is, and then...
yo what if we had like a video game, and it assigned score to the actions you do, and the more score you get the more you can compare it to other players
