Well, just so I make myself clear, it’s not about the number of stars I’m interested in, I just want to know if that’s how they wanted to vote or they voted it by mistake, that’s what I want. I know it will change as soon as other people review it, but still…I feel bad:(

Yes, people have nothing to do with the money and like to spend $50 to give one star…

Where do you live? In Switzerland?

Don’t feel bad. Lots of us have a bunch of 1 star ratings. They’re just balanced out over time with better ratings. So just be patient and just keep uploading awesome themes :)

I don’t see the problem here. If user buy an item, he have full rights to vote 1 star as much as 5 stars. It is wrong only in case user buy to only lower/increase your rating – fake vote.

Time will show your real rating, be cool.

It does matter, a good selling theme that shows up 2 stars or 3 will make the buyers think twice before buying it. At least at the beginning, in the first 3-4-5 reviews. :(

Rating is for rating, not a boost sales option for an author :) It will normalize soon, you will see. This is the risk you take in the competitive community.

no, the problem is not the freedom of buyers to rate how they want. We just want the rating system to be better than now
