6 Star rating instead of 5 Star



  • People seem to rate mods rather highly, I feel like adding an extra star would provide more of a defined rating. You know, if it's 5 stars, you say okay it must be absolutely incredible, but a lot of mods rated 5 are close to 4 or 4.5 stars.



  • @JZersche lol adding one star onto the equation isn't going to change shit. I'm pretty sure @rappo has been thinking about doing 10 stars because every now and then when your writing a comment or click on am ods page you'll actually see ten stars but back to the point. 6 stars instead of 5 isnt going to change shit. But 10 stars would add more diversity towards the rating system.



  • @JZersche @420x420 not to mention most files are rated before the person rating them has even installed the mod. From what I've seen, most ratings are for effort.

    I thought 10 starts, but I figured incorporating 6 would require less scripting, because then every mod that's been rated 5 stars now retains it's original rating, and only lacks a star. If user want they can go back and change their ratings to 6 if the mods really that great. 10 stars would be better.



  • @nathanjamesddg151 I only rate 5 stars. 0.5 stars and 3 stars

    5 for quality and effort. 3 for effort. 0.5 for shit.

    Everyone is different...

    I tend to rate 5 stars quite frequently because people don't get paid to do work, they are volunteering their time and skill...

    I do give 4 stars when it seems that there is room for improvement that is quite glarring, like they over looked something or missed something or did something just flat wrong...

    In those cases I ALWAYS say why and communicate nicely that I appreciate their work and am hopeful that it will be updated.

    I very rarely rate something below 4 stars... If I don't am interested in a mod and am not feeling satisfied with the level of work I might make a comment but usually I tend not to criticize or comment on such work. It isn't polite in my opinion.



  • @nathanjamesddg151 sometime i rate 5 stars only because i find the idee or concept excellent, but i don't try always...

    Well a 6-star system makes no sense since that's not a rating standard anywhere, but I don't see the point in increasing it. Even if it's out of 10 stars, people will still probably just rate 1 or 10. At this point, the rating system probably won't change.



  • TBH, the only thing that I would like is a 10 star rating system but when you think about it, we already have that because we can rate half stars so
    5 stars =10
    4.5 stars =9
    4 stars =8
    3.5 =7
    3 =6
    2.5=5
    2 =4
    1.5 =3
    1=2
    .5 =1

    Idk, just a thought... might aswell say it since I am stuck in my morning classes...



  • @rappo were you working on a 10 star system though? i've been seeing this bug where there's 10 stars



  • for the most part, rappo is probably right. You already have sorting based off the number of ratings and the highest rating. So that's fine.

    I disagree.



  • @JZersche So what?


  • ADMIN

    @420x420 Nah I wasn't working on anything with 10 stars, not sure what that bug is - if you can ever get a screenshot, do share :grin:

    I disagree.

    Well if we were rating house energy levels in Australia, I guess I'd have to reconsider!


  • MODERATOR

    @rappo I've seen this "10 star" bug as well, mostly it happens when using a mobile device.
