I can't help noticing that two modding threads / logs have commented on their star ratings having been suddenly reduced by unknown people. I’ve seen others too with ridiculously low ratings for mods where they’re doing their own manufacturing etc. I personally believe that the star rating system is superfluous and really doesn't reflect the work the modder is doing which I think is, overall, to a very high standard. In fact the star rating is nothing more than someone's personal opinion at best, at worst it’s manipulation at, shall we say, certain times of the year. To see it used abused in a way that is obviously to dishearten the modder is poor sportsmanship; in fact it could even be construed as cheating. After all, will people bother to look at a thread that is rated only 1 or 2 stars, particularly when compared to one that's rated 5? So I propose that the star rating system be disabled totally. If not, at least in the modding / logs sections. Maybe a poll could be added to see how the rest of the forum feels about this, perhaps with 3 simple choices: Disable star ratings for all forums Disable star ratings for the modding forum only - so no modding or project log threads are rated at all Keep the star rating system for all the whole forum What do you all think?
