We have had 5 five stars, 2 four stars and for no reason its give a 1 star out of t nowhere.

This rating system is only for envato marketplace. It will be same for all the items on envato marketplace.If you are getting bad ratings due to silly reasons then other marketplace items will also get bad ratings due to silly reasons . we never complain when someone gives 5 star ratings just for support . Off course majority of buyers never gives bad rating. Personally i don’t see anything wrong with current rating system.

what will buyers feel about the marketplace if all the items on marketplace has 5 star ratings ?

i think we should accept it as a part of game and concentrate on our work .

Well… not really!

I know for sure (don’t ask me how I know) for at least two authors in my category buying every opencart theme that have a potential just to give it low rating and trying to “kill” or reduce competition. Not to mention that every time I come up with something new that’s never been done before (at least for opencart) in max 2 weeks they release a new item built on my code. It’s the same since 2010.

I have to admit they learn fast though. First few times I have managed to take them down with DMCA, but now they are making enough cosmetic changes in order to hide the origin.

Jesus, they have even forgot my name in their code once…

Yes, rating system S..*S and it’s not even in the FAMOUS PIPELINE!

you can accept and work as much you want but when the system allows for simple steps to kill your sales you should stop working for a moment and see what the problem is and ask to be fixed.

Because is better to fix things than allow unscrupulous dishonest authors to increase their sales not based on their work but by knowing how to game the system.
