Why bother with user interation for selection of good/bad dungeons? A number 
of factors will give away whether a random dungeon is suitable for a player: 
time taken, kills (assuming there's killing), number of time play died etc 
etc. You should use these to work out whether a particular dungeon is good 
for a player, and ignore what the player recommend (people are scum (you 
being a good example), and they will use any chance they get to cheat).
