For some reason it has always been like this, as far as I know. I once spend 10 minutes or something doing the quizes on all the different market places, in case I wanted to upload to those
I don’t think it’s a problem that really needs fixing.. it’s a helpful reminder to authors when they join in on another marketplace. For the (semi-) experienced author it is a matter of a few minutes, but it does stop the complete know-no’s from spamming their files all over the marketplaces.
Since we’re on the topic of authors, check out my new username. LOL .It’s difficult to critique a file without actually using it. Instead I think we should brainstorm how to get more buyers to rate.I think eBay has the best rating system. After purchasing an item, there will be a new link in the buyers dashboard which will say I need to leave feedback for 1 item – Then obviously you will want to rate so you can get rid of the link off your dashboard. Pretty cool. It works.
A possible downside of this would be that people would randomly rate files, simply to get rid of that link. It sure is a tough problem, making the hasty buyers rate our items!
I do agree that something needs to be done about this, though!
