Now that we have the new and very improved ranking system :)
We can LIKE peoples models and also UP VOTE there questions....
A lot of guys here put a lot and time and effort into rendering other peoples models that are just breath taking to say the least with there render talents....
What about having a LIKE button for other peoples renders also since they put so much time in to them to achieve impressive and mind blowing renders?
I liked this category because it reflects the fact that the capacity and potential of the person, In the past there are some people put their models simple and easy but you find in the centers of advanced But now there is no his talent and intellectual capacity is the one who wins
I agree it shouldnt be quantity that matters but quality and that can only be achieved by adding like feature to renderings
Yes, all this controversy for the development of competition because there will be competition quality
And quality of persons begins Entering the professional ranks
I believe it is professional to grant also points for liking a new render made for another GrabCad'ers, for new followers, It would bring more diversity in the scores. Now I have the impression some people are making renders "a la minute", just for raising the score.
A3NCAD - I think this is a a great idea
I do agree with you A3 as the quality has dropped with some of the renders and we want GrabCAD to remian professional and great quality like it always has done in the past.
@Hardi & @William - I am pleased with the quick response and the support in this comment. Let's support idea's that bring high quality and special renders/ models. I appreciate the diversity of GrabCAD models and their designers, as it is now.
I think this will make it even worse. I'm getting a lot of messages asking me to like their models simply because they want points. once liking renders also become a source of points we will be flooded with junk in addition to the junk caused by the 15 points/render. GRABCAD now is full of useless renders and formats that some of them have nothing to do with something called "CAD".
Why publish the scoring system strategy?
If don't know the scoring system, than it is more difficult to manipulate the score counting.
I agree with you, William.
But If we have points for Like why not for followers, or contest winners.
yes thank you It's a very good idea
Yeah that would also be another good way to give points out Zelijko the more ways people can get points the better for all the community as some people might be better @ other things than others so the more the better for everyone :)
I agree :)
All of the comments so far mentioned are valid comments, yes this is a good community site were people can encourage and trade skills/practices....but....
there is no reward for someone who has uploaded a model after spending countless hours producing numerous parts that are contained within an assembly, which is recorded a 1 upload, as opposed to someone else (who rightly so) uploads a model of a simple cube because it's their model and they are just as proud of it, recorded as 1 upload... yes, the assembly may draw more attention to itself than a simple cube but it has to depend apon someone actually hitting the like button.
What I am trying to highlight here is you can spend a lot of time or no time at all uploading models that will earn you nothing, or you could spend a short time just rendering someone elses model and earn lots of points...mmmmm
GrabCAD.. award points for rendering someone elses model, yes, because it encourages people to interact with other peoples models and promotes artistic qualities, but please award points to people who are prepared to take the time to produce some of the most stunning models/assemblies that you could ever want to see or have available to you to download.
Quality v Quantity......please , please address this as soon as possible or people will just sit back waiting to render when there is nothing to render.
Footnote: Yes, I am just as guilty for jumping on the render point wagon as the next person because as it stands at the moment it earns me more points than my models can...
It sounds very good :) ... then it will be raining points for render benders :)
I think the whole idea of the new scoring system is to encourage members to participate more in this community, however, we should maintain some professionalism. In other word, we should encourage professionalism and quality through constructive methods. Improving our competitive environment is one way to improve the quality.
I do agree with you ALI with the professionalism but that is how people get better with what they do and why not give them points since we are now on a point system and this way it might also encourage people that do not render that often to try there hand @ it
Sounds good, Points for participating in challenges.
Some people gain almost 10.000 points in less than one week.
so many likes ????!!!!???
Is the system not watertight?
