HWBOT was and is database of results in different benchmarks. Making simple validation will ruin the validity of this database - people are people and cheaters will exploit that simplicity to gain top rankings. Look at Aquamark - first only screenshot of am3 window was required, then screenshot in am3 pasted into paint plus cpuz/gpuz, then wrapper - just because there were too many cheaters using simplicity of early validation rules. 99% of people don't take the time to cheat. We all know who did cheat in the past. We all know (for the most part) when a score looks completely out of whack. We all know the cooling categories are cool, but using Dice and saying it's "chilled liquid" is bullshit. It's a bullshit excuse to over complicate something that people should have ease of access. Yes BenchMate can focus on this aspect, but really needs 100% implementation to work. It needs to be able to fill out the entry for completely and truly so that it's a viable approach to a situation that's not getting better. ____ Then, nobody really knows about HWBot. What some 2000 people might actively benchmark every year out of 7.5 BILLION people on the planet at least half with some sort of access to a computer??? It's a Niche thing that had a hey day like bell bottoms. We can hope it comes back some day. _____ I really think a gaming category to focus on gamers would be a very smart move All in my opinion respectfully.
