I wanted to offer a different take on possibly improving the rating system. How about this…

If a buyer decides to rate the theme anything other than 5 stars, they should be prompted with a text box so they can explain why they’re rating the file 4 stars (or below).

My frustration is that I have no idea why my customers are rating some themes with 4 stars. If it’s because they expected something that wasn’t there, I want to know what it is. If it’s because something isn’t working right, I DEFINITELY want to know what it is.

In any case, I think ratings feedback would be extremely beneficial to both buyers and authors.

The most annoying part is when a buyer who cant even use wordpress and buy the theme then say its not working, or it broke his site and any other issue with it and then rates it 1 star! happened with my latest two themes when 80+ people bought it before him and no one complained!

I would also like to see how many people rated it what, ie 7 people rate 5 stars, 1 person rate 1 star etc…

50% of the feedback for 1 star would be “I bought this site template and tried to install it in WordPress (actually he’ll write Wordpress) but it doesn’t work”

I would really appreciate something like this:

That’s pretty cool, but it doesn’t provide authors feedback for the rating.

It should be just one more improvement of the rating system.
