Not to belabour the point, but I want to give one more example. I just finished playing a dmod named "Moonchild". It gets one review by Scratcher who gives it a 7.5. Well, that's about right. He compares it to "Furball" because they are both non-combat, exploration dmods. Well "Furball" has a lot of beautiful artwork and very nice mapping, but so does "Moonchild". Well, if one plays a lot of dmods, then play both of these. But when "Furball" gets a 9.0 based on one review and "Moonchild" gets a 7.5 based on one review, then which one are people going to play? Obviously "Furball". But "Moonchild" is far more creative, complex, whimsical, and humorous. Not to put down "Furball", but "Moonchild" is definitely better. But Who will play it at 7.5???

Well maybe Sabretrout is correct. Maybe it isn't worth making dmods any more. I don't know. It's all in the luck of the draw with who reviews the dmod. I don't even care about score beyond the fact that it makes all the difference in who will play the dmod after all the hard work.

Unfortunately I have been working on a dmod for months now and I don't want to throw it away. But only five people will play it because...... And it will be my last dmod.
