Hello everyone, the new rating feature has been implemented and it looks really awesome !
Anyways, I have seen many people complaining about undfounded 1-star ratings, now that we see the ratings split up.

I also noticed that issue on a few items in my portfolio. One buyer even wrote a feedback and listed reasons why my item is bad. I proved all of his claims wrong. Btw, most of them arised from the fact that he didnt read the instructions file!

Here are just a few examples of my portfolio:
Realistic Screen Mockups:

Businesscard Mockups – Wood Edition

Invitation & Greeting Card Mockups

Watermark / Copyright – Creation Kit


Now honestly… it is just SO obvious that these people rating 1 star are either incompentent or want to harm you. Is that really necessary ?
We DO have reviewers, therefore its not quite plausible at all that there are many items on this marketplace that deserve a 1 or 2 star rating.

I have read this suggestion/idea alot, and I want to repeat it:

IsnĀ“t it time to implement a feature that its ONLY possible to rate an item below 3 stars if you give a multi-line feedback in which you list why the item should have 1/5 stars ?


Maybe there should also be a category for “false rating issues” when writing a ticket to support. Thank you for reading.

I would rate it 1 star too, he bought the music because of the vocal “audiojungle” and the file does not have it!! :D

Noob clients who don’t read our documentation should be kicked out of rating and comment.

In case of e-mail harassment, set their mail to spam and sayonara.

Perhaps we get rid of them :)

I am extreme kidding but still, we need a solution.

Guys, guys, guys! Please stop whining :) That’s how rating works. Most potential buyers understand that if item has 10 5-stars and 1 1-star ratings than item is ok (and 1-star comes from noob).

I think that many of the 1 stars are from ppl who bought your file to steal it and offer it for “free”, that is why only 1 person is rating it so low and the reason for the low rating is, that He must pay for it…

The problem is that the good clients dont rate :D
As i said on other thread, who rates 1 star is clearly to ruin the good name of the item, and this new system will just benefit them big time, just wait to see :)

Let’s show a message to noob… when hovering the one star, the browser should show

ARE YOU NOOB?
