This is a very new and great feature that will put an end to the long debate of the ranking system for all community members now it is up to the individual to better there rank rather than a computer deciding what rank they have.
:) This is exactly what is needed!! :)
Loved the Marcus score... 8088 Model 88 :)
And top place for the top 3 Silvio William & Fateh! :D
Yip Sudhir now there will be no more debates about the ranking system as it is all down to the user to upgraded there rank....... This is great news and will be well liked within the community..... LoL'ss@the Marcus score
William you should know by now that haters are going to hate
LoL'ss true, true Manolis
It is good that the changes finally came. It is still a bit quantitative but I was tired of looking at the same people at the top for no reason :) so it's good now.
I agree with you my friend :)
That's the truth! =)
So do I!
Yes now we all know how the rank works Branko no it should put an end to the debate about ranking system on GrabCAD and now we can all get back to being the happy community that we once were before that debate started hehehhe CAD, LIFE, FRIENDSHIP again :))))) Love it
Well in my opinion, it is still quantitative not qualitative system.
Quality is what matters
I do still agree with you ALI there, but now it is in simple black and white and no more gray..... so everyone has a fair chance now on improving there ranks within GrabCAD and now everyone knows how to do it so this makes it fair as GrabCAD have told us the ground rules......
I don´t know, if the new ranking system is good or bad, but I see there one problem, If somebody upload some hundreds of renders ( worse than the originally or not ) he go with score up. If I upload 334 renders now I will be 1st.
now is it still OK because the good engineers are on top, but what if.
PS : I am not a hater. :-)
i have seen the link there Ali. I was laughing my ass of. That is wrong. people don't even spend time looking at somebodies work, they just automatically render and make shitty renders. People started uploading pictures and giving likes as if we were on the facebook ;)
Hi Marcos, Thank you for the kind words.
I can see were you Branko and many others were you all are coming from about the quality of the renders for some people that are getting just for points for. That is why I think the points for renders should be left for the member of this great community to vote a LIKE for them and not just auto give them 15 points for the uploads of renders. I do feel strong about what GrabCAD is here for also and that is to show off our work and " EDUCATE OUR SELF's WITH CAD AND RENDERING TO HELP OTHERS AND SHARE WHAT WE KNOW WITH MEMBERS THAT ARE JUST STARTING OUT". This needs to be taking into account that we all need to start some were with CAD modelling and rendering and are not @ the same level as many other great talented people on here with CAD and rendering I myself still have years to perfect CAD and rendering and improving my skills and the only way I can do that is by keep practising with my CAD and rendering and that will go for many others also. I do like the new point system as it gives us all something to work on and it much fairer than the old system and gives us all the same opportunities within GrabCAD to reach a better rank but saying that it is only a rank for the time and effort you put in on this awesome site and should not be confused with how great one is with there skills and work they produce with CAD.
The only way a "like" based system would work is if it were implemented from the start. What about all tthe great models you haven't liked because they are old and you never saw them. Usually only new models get noticed now with the huge number of models here.
I can see your point with this one Marcus JE and I have commented on letting the community LIKE the renders that others put up and that way it is then down to the individual if he likes the render or not and that way it will not just give you 15points for uploading a render...
I must admit I have put up some renders that I have only spend min's on and are not great but I do also try my best with models I think are great and have time to render them as some of my renders can take hours by the time I Keyshot them and take them into Photoshop.
this is actually what is going on right now. just take a look at the top engineers profiles. full of rubbish!! some of then didn't even upload a render of the file but some pictures that have nothing to do with CAD!! I think GrabCad should put no points for renders unless they want to discourage those who love rendering.
Forget about ranking system, and concentrate on CAD. Keep doing great models and right people will definitely appreciate it.
Well said Branko //Handshake
Branko Stokuca that is obviously for me. In real is me problem that I dont want somebody pick up me model in which I have invested me time and upload some shity renders only to come in ranking up. But on other side I cant lock me models for renders, because I like when there come something from : Carco , Silvio Arcanjo , or William and other what can make a good render.
I know what you are saying. People also render my models and I don't like the quality of their work. Just today I have uploaded a phone which took me couple of days to finish and somebody uploaded a render which is laughable. But hey, I hope that somebody will appreciate my work :)
Marcus, I don't really want to make this personal against anyone but if can just take a quick look over the first page of engineers you will see what I mean. here is an example of a model and renders and you can read my comments under Nemanja "render". Telecaster Style Pick-guard. and there are hundreds like this and even worse.
I can understand both sides, but everybody can see if that is a beginner or that case what write Branko Stokuca
I have no problem with beginners, I like to say what they can make better, yes that have happen some time to me, i have write what must be better and how to make it. and there was every time a answer with big thanks. I let it run so how it is and dont make my stress. If i like i let it there if not i delete it. I am happy that you guys have understand me point.
The new system is just a game. Who can get the most likes and upload the most junk? Is there a benefit to the users here anywhere? I love for people to render my models, but i don't want them to be the outcome of a points race. That is all that is happening and the overall content quality of this site is dropping rapidly.
So true my friend.
Very good point Aaron I after reading your message agree with you 100% it is good to have a better points system on GarbCAD for the community.... Now when I read what you say I do not think it is such a good idea as we want to try and keep GrabCAD the way it has been with a very high stander and quality.....
very true Aaron! there are a lot of people who love numbers and willing to spend their time to upload hundreds of junk files to increase that damn number.
Let the "games" begin....
Aaron - have you seen games?
Hardi, Have you not seen the games?
Do I have proof? No, but I've been watching the progression of many people coming up through the ranks and there is NO WAY it's legitimate. 2000-3000 points in a couple days? If you think that's legit for someone with <100 files then there is another problem.
I loved this new system!! It's better for follow our "evolution".
Now the first one is a Brazilian guy... Congratulations Silvio Arcanjo!
LoL'ss@the Brazillian yeah well deserved for Silvio the mechanical CAD artist
That's true but I hope replace him for myself... hahaha!! Kidding!!
hahaha!! LOL!! I liked your idea!
it is better for him to watch his back, the Scotch is coming :)
LoL'ss a Brazillian for another Brazillian ehhehehe I like it only your better looking that him Silvio heheheh get in there his rank has got your name on it :P Opsss Shhhh don't tell Silvio about what I said LmaO :)
This is horrible for our "evolution". Grabcad is evolving into meaningless content.
I agree with those who feel the uploading of (meaningless) renders count for too much. Grabcad should be about modelling, this is not a graphic artists site. Sometimes you go through 5 or more pages under "new" items with not a single new model, only different coloured renderings of the simplest of models to gather points. Points should be awarded for original, downloadable models, not for rendering and / or re-saving models in different file formats..... After all, we're first and foremost Engineers, not Graphic Artists:)
