Hi Folks,

We have now rolled out author half-star ratings and at the same time we have updated the author sidebar to be more consistent with item sidebar.

Here is a before and after screenshot:

Uhm… And I’m not sure I like it. Now the size of the font doesn’t fit to the rest of page at all. Unfortunately I’m not overjoyed :)

Hilarious. Nobody of the top authors reaches full 5 stars. You shifted the whole thing. You know that’s going to hurt sales for everybody, don’t you?

The current model is: first do, later think about the consequences. Didn’t you notice that? :zipped:

Then you’ll probably get the speech about “some authors are happy, others aren’t”...

I really don’t get what’s your problem with the ratings, it’s seems some authors care about it more than most of buyers, I’ve seen 3 stars rated themes selling better than 5 stars before, and I see no drop in sales now after that change. It’s definitely harder now to keep 5 stars, but who cares, the ratings are at last transparent, that’s what’s important.
