[Fair suggestion]

If an Item would have 5 Stars on the old system, then drop those 1 Star ratings, and recalculate the average.

Well 5 star ratings goes down to 4.5 4 star ratings goes down to 3.5 what is happening..?

But 3 star rating increase to 3.5 (for this I will give +1). Am I happy? with 3 stars to 3.5?

No!

what about 5 to 4.5 & 4 to 3.5

& I don’t think it will help us (authors) in wrong run. When it’s about visible rating system.

A buyer give 5 star rating for one of my item & another buyer give 1 star rating. Why? May be another buyer don’t know how to use that item.

Many times buyers buy an item (for eg. a psd file) but don’t know how to use Photoshop. They msg you via your profile page & ask you to customize that item & tell you if you do it I’ll give you 5 star rating. & it’s 100% true. If you customize they give you 5 stars (I am not sure they do). But if you don’t (you can imagine)

I am sure it will affect our sales, I’ll prefer the old rating system.

Thanks

@YD-LABS: None of the buyers will think if you have 20five, 5four, and 1 or 2one star rating your item is bad. Moreover his conclusion will be 5, because thats the majority. Do you think buyers don’t know that there are some people in this world, who can not be satisfied because it’s their standard attitude. Every market just like this. Just sell ice-cream, or do a restaurant, vegetables, or anything. You will always meet those people. Europe, Asia, Africa, or the North pole whatever, does not matter. It’s human behaviour.

I think we should be allowed to enter in a dispute against those who rate our items 1 or 2 stars. Microlancer has a dispute option and I feel we should have one here too. If a buyer rates 1 star and provides a reason and if it’s an invalid reason we should be allowed to dispute it. It’s not fair for trollers to spoil our happiness.
I had the same thought. This would really help us to remove “bugs” or make an easier description. I recognized that especially InDesign files have often 2 or 1 star rating. And I think it has something to do with buyers low experience with the program. And some of them blame it on the file.

Greate feature.

Something I noticed on some of my items:

When I check out my 4.5-5 star rated items, there is a single buyer who rated 1 or 2 stars and I ask myself why do I need to suffer this low rating because a total noob purchased one of my items and had no clue how to edit it eventhough it’s 100% simple and organized and didn’t even bother to ask for help. Just shows that there are people with zero (0) knowledge in photoshop that I prefer they stay out of my portfolio. Just ain’t worth the purchase.

This can hurt sales especially for items with only few ratings (+3), for example:

\\

I totally agree with you, there’ll be some people who think it’s funny to rate it low and ruin our reputations.

I’ve looked around some of the items.

Is depressing, :(

people buy a product, then get angry for some reason (usually has nothing to do with the item) rate one star, with the idea they can do some damage to the author.

But there are a lot of buyers who rate correctly, and that’s a good thing.

Just a minor note: I don’t like how the info is present, it takes to much space and just pushes down the more important “item info box”. This may increase the probability of buyers not reading this information and buying an item that is not exactly what they want from a technically point of view. Just more support resources wasted at this point.
