I haven’t read through all the replies, so this might have been mentioned. But based on the topic title:

As I see it the Rating System is total nonsense for AudioJungle. A buyer buys what he likes most, a buyer can actually hear what he buys before buying. Why would he buy the item he like, and then not rate it the maximum value? It makes no sense. Like: “oh great track, I’m going to buy it! I’ll rate it a 2 rather than a 5 though because it sucks” (?!). Based on my local copy of the AudioJungle Marketplace, most sales aren’t even rated, though there are plenty rated. How is this fair? For a buyer will naturally first click something with a high rating, rather than the ocean of non-rated stuff. To add to this: all uploaded material is subject to review. If it would suck, meaning it would be worth 1 star or not even a star at all, it should not get accepted in the first place. Maybe it’s just my way of thinking, that I miss something obvious, but to me this is all nonsense and highly unfair for AudioJungle.

Nope you’re not missing anything obvious you’re stating the obvious quite well with a good explanation that has been echoed for a very long time.

I see you quoted my text, though it was editted in the meanwhile. Not that it matters so much. :)

I am sick of this rating system.

Today my latest theme which is the new flati theme which is collaborated with another user on our other account has been given a 1 Star rating.

Our support forums are full of being telling us how good the theme is and just asking for requests.

We have done 13 requests from buyers and updated the theme regularly with these requests.

All our buyers who have talked to us, have been happy with the theme and support.

We have had 5 five stars, 2 four stars and for no reason its give a 1 star out of t nowhere.

Our theme has gone from a 5 star to a 4 star now just over 1 rating which is obviously a competitor.

I am fed up of not knowing who and why a 1 star is given.

A 1 star or 2 star should only be given if it does not work or if a author has specifically lied about a feature that is not there.

Instead of Envato doing a decent rating system or at least making things a little more transparent (rather than hiding behind the privacy law, which by the way does not cover comments if states within the terms of use that if you supply a comment you agree to being visible on the websites review system.) than making stupid little updates that just make things worst or just simply do nothing.

Why is a header with a million logos more important than a rating system or search system?

Why is changing the look of the footer more important than a rating system or search system?

Who makes these decision?

I know this is harsh but honestly if this was within my company I would reprimand the decision maker for these updates and let them know that there is more pressing issues to resolve.

Envato do you ever think that a better search and rating system would earn you more money than a hideous header that is not just a nightmare to navigate but a Web Design 101 epic fail!

Anyway my rant is over!!

Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

As a customer my threads are regularly locked and the excuse is usually that there’s another thread that vaguely covers the same topic. Funnily enough though this doesn’t seem to apply to the thousands of ‘I hate the rating system’ threads on here which go on, and on, and on, and on…

That is because this thread is months old, I would have started a new thread but it would just get shut down because its duplicating a thread.

I think you’re missing my point, this thread is already duplicating hundreds of other rating rants.

I perfectly feel you man ! People sometimes don`t read the description in its entirety, they buy the item , then come back to you saying “I thought this item would do this” and when I tell them , no it doesn`t do that, read the description ! They go then and give you a low vote ! It happened to me before.

This rating system is only for envato marketplace. It will be same for all the items on envato marketplace.If you are getting bad ratings due to silly reasons then other marketplace items will also get bad ratings due to silly reasons . we never complain when someone gives 5 star ratings just for support . Off course majority of buyers never gives bad rating. Personally i don’t see anything wrong with current rating system.

what will buyers feel about the marketplace if all the items on marketplace has 5 star ratings ?

i think we should accept it as a part of game and concentrate on our work .

Well… not really!

I know for sure (don’t ask me how I know) for at least two authors in my category buying every opencart theme that have a potential just to give it low rating and trying to “kill” or reduce competition. Not to mention that every time I come up with something new that’s never been done before (at least for opencart) in max 2 weeks they release a new item built on my code. It’s the same since 2010.

I have to admit they learn fast though. First few times I have managed to take them down with DMCA, but now they are making enough cosmetic changes in order to hide the origin.

Jesus, they have even forgot my name in their code once…

Yes, rating system S..*S and it’s not even in the FAMOUS PIPELINE!
