Changes announced to Rotten Tomatoes’ audience ratings

Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes announced it is making some modifications following “an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling.”

The website acknowledged it is eliminating the “Want to See” share ranking for a movie sooner than it is launched, because it’s “often times confused” with the overall “Audience Score” for the launched film.

The switch comes after newest headlines about upcoming film Captain Marvel having its scores intentionally lowered by on-line trolls.

Rotten Tomatoes acknowledged it could even be disabling suggestions on a movie or TV current’s internet web page sooner than it is launched.

“Unfortunately, we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership,” the positioning acknowledged. “We have decided that turning off this feature for now is the best course of action.”

The website acknowledged audience ratings and suggestions as quickly because the film or sequence is launched will keep the equivalent as they have been.

The announcement acknowledged the modifications mark “the first of several phases of updates that will refresh and modernize our Audience Rating System.”

“We’re doing it to more accurately and authentically represent the voice of fans, while protecting our data and public forums from bad actors,” it acknowledged.
