If you're letting me completely change my guide without the champion being changed at all why would you not let guides whose champions get changed simply be changed?

And even if the guide is changed completely and ends up being a bad guide with a very good rating it won't matter much at all. There are several guides like that in mobafire already and the mods don't do anything about them, so why would you reset guides in that situation?

EDIT: Also, you should reset all guides that got the score when C2V was always enabled. It's much more unfair that they got an high score with a fail system than by making a good build and writing a good guide.

I'm supporting this suggestion.

I'd kinda like this too. A lot of bad guides have high ratings..

No, a lot of guides were made during this period, don't just reset the score...

the bad ones made during this time probably aren't going to get updated so they'll get archived...

and @Jebus

I think even after a total rework, the score should still stay since you know that author is providing reliable information, and worked hard, and their previous guide was successful, so you can still RELY on their revamped guide.

Score of actually good guides is more of a reliability factor than anything, for the most part a top rated guide will be more reliable than a lower rated one (if they are constantly updated).

They got that score for a reason.

^^ No end thread, am commenting here to say I support archiving guides with items that no longer exist.

Guides that have not been edited in 1.5 months should be archived to. Authors can easily unarchive guides if they happen to visit MobaFire again, so I don't see why a general clean-up shouldn't occur.

A quick sweep of all guides that haven't been edited in 1.5 months and/or have non-existent items. If the authors really care they'll be logging in and editing so their guides aren't archived.


That isn't even what this thread is about, it was already mentioned several times in and out of this thread that an auto archival of guides that haven't been updated in 2 months is being put in place soonTM.

The guides with non-existent items are usually not updated (obviously), so they will go bye-bye soon too.
