Why not put ratings notifications in the fun facts?

Example:

1. Fun Fact: you currently have 130 ratings.

2. Fun Fact: your last rated item was “Item Name”.

Note: Sometimes its difficult to know your last rated item especially when it don’t receive the minimum ratings as yet.

3. Fun Fact: your last rated item “Item Name” received 4 stars.

Best regards, RomacMedia

Why remove the 1 star ratings? Do you really think all the items are worth 4 and 5 stars? The things are simple and fair from my point of view, customer support is not required, updates are not required, but if you want good rating, you must have them. This is the way the market goes, one can’t have 5 stars he provides poor support or a poor documentation, but the item looks great from the demo.

If all the 1 stars and 2 stars rating would be removed, I don’t see the point of having the rating system at all. It’s ok to filter some of the 1 and 2 star ratings, but not all of them, because some of them are justified. If I’d buy an item and I don’t get any kind of support of how to achieve something from the demo or how to do something normal, I’d rate it 1 star too.

Any chance to know Why user submitted 1 star with Reason and their withour username or with? If that 1 star reason is being revealed we wanna improve it and tell the rated user? If that possible that would be really awesome
Yep, without making promises, that’s the general direction we’re headed — proving authors insight to improve their items/documentation/etc, and also to try weeding out “irrelevant” ratings.

It’s been a month. Any news?

probably already suggested but please allow buyer to rate the item directly on the item page.

Good stuff! Curious roughly how many ratings were made vs. how many filled in the optional rating reason in that short period of time.
Yep, I’ll definitely start sharing this stuff ASAP. Right now it’s Friday evening and I want to go hang out with my kids :)

Care to share some info?
