I really shocked with this new rate system! One of my motion graphic files has “1 point”! It is not a template or etc. You already watched it in preview! How much different could it be?!!!

I really want to applaud this guy loudly! :)

Yeah… it’s weird that. Happens with Audiojungle tracks too. I suspect it’s usually a rating to do with the author’s own inability to use the file, or on its pricing, or on the Envato service, or a mistake.

For files where what you see is what you get, it’s hard to understand how a rating of 1 star might come about.

A final improvement to the rating system might be to prompt for (if not require) a comment / qualification for ratings under 3 – to allow the author to improve the file.

Unfortunately, probably buyer might wanted another color, length, frame rate, or whatever, but he could not find a suitable file, so he got yours and rated it based on his needs… It happens mostly in Motion graphics files… :(

This is where the new ratings breakdown fails.Most likely your ratings are suffering because of the buyers inability to read the information or use his own software.
