Because I was randomly checking stats on my new album...

PSEUDO/SENTAI Bansheeface ratings only


chronological order | showing rating only

This is impossible because I did not give this album to either of these individuals. The album is currently unreleased, and I have only been sharing it with close friends and people that are reviewing it. Checking DannyB shows that he has just been giving a hundred hundred albums 5 stars.

Someone deleted the ratings of the new Beardfish because they say that it's not released yet. But in Europe, it was released the 12th January, so we listened to the album so we can rate it.

Hey guys. I was contacted by the guys from Daal to review their new album but they sent me this because it looks like a blanket one star rating on two different accounts. I don't know what to think about this. Not my department. Since it looks like rating abuse of some sort i feel i must at least report it.

This is the message
http://www.progarchives.com/Collaborators.asp?id=53832 ------------------------------------- http://www.progarchives.com/Collaborators.asp?id=53391 ------------------------------------- sorry to bother you Silly (for frivolous matters) but this seems absurd! it seems that - phoenix Again want to throw sh*t at all.We received these two votes in 1 hour or less - but it seems to me the same person!

I've been reading that this is a problem. Not sure if this person has been dealt with in the appropriate manner but have at it! Put your admin powers to work Embarrassed

I'm glad to hear that - especially seeing as those ratings-only from non collaborators mean so little to the overall ranking.
....and you're quite right about it being childish. These people are going for the gold on PA by trashing every other band around them. That's pretty much pre school right there

My band received a rating from him, which is how I discovered his one star ratings bonanza. Stuff like this doesn't anger me any longer. It's just childish.

All ratings are deleted now, and Ragnarson is out for good.

Ragnarson is quite obviously a huge fan of Phoenix Again. But not much else, apparently.



Back at it again here it seems:

My opinion to get new people coming to this site while reducing the rate manipulation by scoring other members low, is by allowing new members to score the band they love, making their joining the site easy concerning their effort to sign up to score their favorite band 5 or 4 stars, meanwhile not allowing them unless they have been active on this site via posts to score other bands released on the same year lower. hugs to all Hug

The new Beardfish album who comes out next year already have a 5 stars rating.
Should put a warning like there is on the new Steven Wilson album.

I have no problem with high ratings, people who really like a band and therefore come for the purpose to score the band 5 stars, this is true and plausible to me, however when they go as far after that in rating other bands low, this raises red flags and it's not fair really. Unhappy

I think that everyone has the right to rate an album with whatever his/her rating happens to be. What I detest, is, there is no PROOF, whether the procrastinator has indeed listened to the album or not.
What I mean is, if I was a 'bored wonderer', surfing the net for something to do, and I happened across this site by random search, maybe I'd just plonk on random ratings for whatever 'sh*t' is on offer, then disappear into the ether......
We have to accept this sort of behaviour, and move on.....
Heck, I rate many albums as a 5 star masterpiece, maybe against all religion, but, believe me, I carefully consider what the album in question does for me, how it figures into the progression and development of music, and more so, how much it moves me. I do understand that, for instance, Twelfth Night's debut means diddly squat to most Proggers, however, what I hear is an update and modernisation of the old 'traditional' Prog.
I don't know what more to say......
