How about having our ratings system changed to this concept. Just an Idea for the Envato Dev Team if they are still thinking how to change the ratings concept. This topic of ratings has been discussed several times on the forums.

New Concept Should be something like this IMO.

absolute excellent rating which is useful for me to reference apps in android store :D

Solution: Remove it, the buyer is not buying a “star rating”, they’re buying a theme that fits whatever they are building on the web.

If they want to see how great it is, they can preview it.

If they want to see what others think about it they can see the comments.

I think buyers rate either 5 stars or 0 stars. I think the most 0 star ratings are from unexperienced users who thought they buy the theme for 45$ and also all customizations they had in mind which is unconvertable.

+10000000000 remove it!

It would also be ‘embarrassing’ for Envato to approve a low-rating item here though. I think it might actually do good to authors if it’s removed :p

100% for this, it will display a clear distinction between the majority and the few irrational ratings.

This is a fairer solution for both developers and customers +1

“Great idea guys, based on your feedback we’re going to implement this asap!”

Said no-one at envato ever.

It’s pointless making these suggestions here, they don’t get implemented. Just look at the things like the abysmal search functionality – how many years has that been completely useless for? This kind of thread pops up once ever other week ..

Actually ratings may be a very good thing for your reputation. Though it has been misused most of the times and even if you’re friendly and handsome to your clients there will be always somebody who breaks your hard work because pleasing everybody is pretty much impossible.

We asked several times in the past years for a more honest, transparent and fulfilling rating system. We didn’t get anything more than prettier stars. So, I guess we need to accept it and if you get pissed off by somebody ruining your record rating remember that you can always ask your clients to rate the item and get if fixed later.
