I would really like to see a list of ratings a file is getting and not only the overall.

Because I simply don’t understand how my last two files got a 3 star rating… I included a detailed readme file and embedding examples for different kinds of uses (even with parametrized xml source). From emails Im getting that people simply don’t read the readme file and then get angry when something is not working and apparently rate low.

I honestly don’t have the time to answer questions that are explained in the readme file. Am I doomed to be a 3 star author because of this?

Maybe this FAQ tab thing would help.

really, that’s why I hate ratings, they say not much about the quality of the file or the hard work the author had with it

Well, the rating system needs to be improved. A buyer accidentally rated one of my files with one star and my general rating went down, also that file seems to make less sales than before this incident. I’d vote for an ebay like rating system. Buyers should leave a comment next to their rating, for other buyers to know and also for authors to improve / fix their files if needed.

+1… for 1 – 3 stars they must write an explanation

I agree, an ebay style voting system would be great. Buyers should also be able to change their rating if they change their mind :)

They should give a comment for each rating, whether it’s 5 or just 1 star. Good comments would help that file sell better.

Yes, I would just like something… a silent bad vote doesn’t do anyone any good.
