GrabCAD new ranking system
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.
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.
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 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:)
