If you have something on Spore or in life that you REALLY DISLIKE (like downraters!) post a rant or just an opinion (which would probably be a rant anyway) in this topic. I'll post mine soon. (It's about DOWNRATERS!)

I think the thing that bugs me most is people who care so much about the condition of Spore, and are fanatical about it, downraters or not. People post creations with rants about downraters and such, but all it does is block the MPN from aspiring creators like many of us. I honestly do not think that hateful creations will change the ways of downraters. You would not believe how many creations I've seen in the MPN list that say "Downraters Suck!" or "Come back, ______!" (in the blank, put the name of a popular creator). The online feature of Spore was made so that people can be proud that others can give feedback on their creations, not so that people can adore popular creators and wage war over them! I don't want this to sound like I'm trying to raise a rebellion, so if I may use a line from Andeavor, It's just a game!

I'm really getting annoyed about the volume of six year old's on xbox live. Seriously, I can't play a single game of modern warfare 2 multiplayer without having some youngster brag that he is "Tenth prestige" (Most of those jerks hack the game, or join hacked lobbies to attain it) and then freak out when they start to suck, which they always do. Muting them works if they are alone, but they travel in packs. The almighty mute button is sometimes useless.

I'm not a featured or popular creator, have never claimed to be, and probably never will be. And this rant is not about downraters; sometimes, a creation deserves the rating it receives. But when people do rate something, many of them do not release the full scale of what they are doing. If they're rating a big-shot super adventure, then one rating won't matter at all. But if they're rating a small, ten-play adventure like mine, one rating can take it from blue to yellow, yellow to orange, or even orange to red. So all I ask of people in this rant is to take rating more seriously, and truly consider whether the adventure or creation you're rating is truly worthy of the vote you're about to cast.

Depends on the people, Popular creators very often comment back, but most of the time I get rates. Fine by me, but never enough to be on the first page on the MPN.

This isn't so much a rant as an opinion about Clark and Stanley. Yesterday, iI released my first (and probably last) Clark and Stanley adventure. Today, it has a green rating and was on the most popular new adventures list. For me, this was astounding, and just goes to show how C&S screws up the MPN: this adventure took me about two days, while my last adventure took about a week and got about half the amount of plays. oh my!

Two days??? I can make a Clark and Stanley adventure in an hour, and that's a good one! When you make an eight-act epic story featuring Clark and Stanley that takes a month to make, let me know.

I always put in A LOT of details, which is why it takes me a long time to make any adventure.

One other thing: if you play an adventure where you start out stuck in the floor, don't rate the adventure. Starting out in the floor probably wasn't creator's fault, so it would be best to just let it be.

I think I give all my adventures good pictures and good names, but I'm very underrated, so it really doesn't make that much of a difference, unfortunately. I'll keep trying, but so far, I haven't had that magical adventure that's gotten me higher in the creator ranks. :I

I don't really think they care: they've been on long enough and are so popular that downrating isn't a major issue for them. With popularity comes critics

I think those 6 year olds are hilarious... Especially if they attempt to curse at us, they just don't use the words right most of the time.

I have so many rants, but I'll try to think of a funny one for here...

PostSubject: No plays!   Tue Nov 16, 2010 6:10 am

I got GA in September of 2009. Since then, I've released about fifteen Adventures I personally think are very well-done. Unfortunately, nobody seems to notice them, and those who do downrate if they lose the first time they try it!

I guess the lack of plays is partially my fault, as several of them have locked captains. But the stories don't make sense for other characters.

I'd like to give a hearty laugh and claim those six year olds aren't on the PS3... but they are. is it just me, or do they sound like they're chubby kids slouched in an armchair with a plate of nachos?

Indeed... the same prinicple applies to Youtube - every kid who ever gives a tutorial has a head cold, stuffy nose, and sounds British.

Your problem is that you aren't noticed... nobody knows about your adventures because most people only look at the creations by their buddies and on the MPN. Here's how to get noticed:

1. Win a contest by a famous creator. I got second place in Parkaboy's space ship template contest, and that bumped up my subscriber number a bit.

2. Get a creation featured or on the MPN. MPN is probably better, though. This is pretty hard to accomplish, but it's a great way to get plays on your adventure. I suggest you post your adventure either here on GAC or on the Sporum, and hopefully people will uprate it.

3. Get active in the Sporum. I hardly ever use the Sporum, so I'm not sure how effective this is. If you participate in many discussions or contests in the Sporum, your name may get noticed. The same goes for commenting on popular creator's things: people notice your name more.

4. Get endorsed by a famous creator. The easiest way to do this is to create a challenge, and ask people to help judge it. Popular creators are often generous, so they may even make a creation advertising your contest.

That's about all I can think of... if you need more help, make sure you stop on by Gelatino's Advice Corner.
