    90% of the messages are unrated or just with 1 or 2 rates. In Demon SOuls you came across messages rated above 100! Also never ever are my mesages rated. System feels and seems a bit broken. I always have been wondering about that. Any insight, ideas or thoughts about the message-system? Thanks

    I just found out by accident you can view all the comments you have made. I really don't know what to do with this information or like acidic said I really don't care.

    That's what I meant. The in game messages you leave to help or deceive other players. You can see the message and the rating.

    I don't know why, at first it used to disappoint me a bit. Now I use completely ignore them, I don't write any more messages for people and I don't read any of the messages on the ground. It's a shame though, it's a game mechanic that could've been better explored, IMO.

    I rate messages constantly and I fairly often see messages rated up pretty high. Though they're usually of the comedic variety

    90% of the messages I see are 0 rated. I think indeed most don't care about them.

    Every place I have ever invaded I have left the message: "Be wary of Darkwraiths" ....

    ....many of them, (at least a dozen), have numerous positive ratings.

    I agree with most people here who have already said it, no one really cares sad
    I care, I rate and place helpful messages.

    I mainly see many useless or deceiving messages everywhere now a days.

    if you use seek guidance you can see how many + ratings it got and how many - ratings it got. and you see more helpful messages by software and IRL people.

    The thing I'll never understand is why there are always 2-5 "Blacksmith ahead" messages on the way to Andre and all of them normally have at least 10 positive ratings, where as if I were to put down the same message, I'm sure no one would rate it. I always try to rate up the "Need humanity" messages I see, but sometimes there are just too many for me to bother...

    There is one at Firelink bonfire that says "Bonfire?". Stupid right? Well it has 586 votes (don't know how many positives and negatives, you can see that by casting seek guidance and voting). Instead of a hollow it has a Kaathe or Frampt as picture. I have the photo on my cellphone but I can't seem to upload it here. When I bought DkS day one I saw "Praise the sun" messages everywhere. Like people from Demon's really liked the sun effect in DkS, as Demon's is so damn dark and saddened.

    There are helpful message like "Secret Path" which helped me in 1st playthrough.

    Now, when I got time left or waiting for something, I am rating all messages I see....

    Never had a message rated. Even ones which I consider useful like those which indicate the best place to stand to snipe enemies or fight the hydra without drowning. On the other hand, I see messages stating the obvious like 'bonfire' when one is in plain sight, plus rated dozens of times.

    The system is completely illogical and therefore worthless. I have been ignoring this aspect of the game for some time.

    The message system suffered because they chose to go without a dedicated control server. So the messages you can see are made by authors who are online at the same time as you.
    The authors might have to be connected to you as well, or their high rated messages in the area have to travel through a third party player before reaching you.

    That's the answer I was looking for. Suspected such a thing. Demon Souls had dedicated servers yes. A message system works better that way.
