if you like *.rs domain, then you could try some word play with the rs suffix like the following :
Designers, Sketchers, Stylizers, Igniters, Remakers, Turtlers :
Designe.rs, Sketche.rs, Stylize.rs, Ignite.rs, Remake.rs, Turtle.rs (Someone whose occupation is hunting turtles, not great if you like turtles).
Don’t know if any of these are available but worth checking.
whoops, it appears I agree with Australia because he’d already made the suggestion
I like your surname, sounds powerful
But I agree, it’s a little hard to pronounce. So break it up and go for jakovic.com ( domain is still available). It’s got a nice ring to it. You can use it as your main site where you showcase your products.
You can also create some pretty cool subdomains with that, eg : crn.jakovic.com and use it for email eg: email@example.com even though a little lengthy
Ratings and MicroLancer has been around for some time; I doubt they have affected the sales in any noticeable way. I have also noticed that page views for all my plugins have halved this week. Is anyone else facing this? Particularly this week. From Monday onwards.
Same here, exactly since Sunday sales went dead and traffic halted. Kind of picked up a little yesterday. Thought it was just me though or perhaps this is just an unfortunate coincidence
Would you want to opt-in to (or opt-out of) all new features, or only the ones you disagree with?
Couldn’t help but ask for an opt-out. I understand that the request is a little farfetched
Thanks for engaging and I see the new order of the ratings box. Much better, thanks!
At least allow us to decide if we want to display the ratings breakdown or not on our items. This breakdown is a feature that wasn’t there before signing up as an author, hence the least i’d expect is a cop out option.
The breakdown itself is taking away too much attention from our items and in addition it influences buyer rating decision. Should I rate a 5 ? Look, everybody has rated this a 5 star, i’m going to settle for a 3 or a 2 perhaps. Oh, nobody has rated 1 ? Let me be the first then!
This is a very likely behavioral pattern that will emerge from the ratings breakdown, so let’s not encourage it!
Right now, even if there was a genuine reason for receiving a 1star rating, after having fixed the issue that caused the negative rating, it will always show in the breakdown regardless. This wasn’t the case earlier. Earlier, if an item had a negative, through hard work, one had the possibility to bring this back up. Now, even if you bring it up, it will always show in the breakdown. I don’t need it there if whatever issue that caused the negative rating is fixed.
The breakdown is nice for an author eyes only. Not for the public
ohhh that’s totally wicked! congrats
@ceasar, this can be a solution :))

I’m waiting for some answers, not the same posts from others topics , yes, the system is not great! But i’m asking : “When you receive a lower rate and don’t know why, what do you do ?”
Why ask questions with obvious answers ?
You do nothing of course, because that’s how the system is. All you can do is improve your product based on useful feedback made by users either through the comments or someone was kind enough to contact you directly. The 1 ratings wont affect you much if your product is good and almost always you can tell why you have down votes. I know the frustrations my users have and why they vote negatively. I don’t agree with the rating but there is nothing I can do about it.
I do however make the necessary tweaks to ensure this frustration is at a minimum. For instance most help for support on one of my items is because the buyer always has an old version of PHP. I am now ensuring that all future work is not limited to PHP 5.3 and above.
Read your comments and listen to your users frustrations, chances are good that who ever left you a rating of 1 fall within these. People just don’t leave a bad rating. They do so for a reason. If I can tell this by reading my comments so can most authors.
