Lack of interest Ideas on how to make resource ratings more obvious?


Formerly mugtree
We have lots of users downloading resources, but only a few ratings? I did see an addon that makes the stars light up but thought that was a little distracting.

How about an alert a couple of days later to those users that have downloaded the resource asking them to go back and rate it?
When I look up a book on Amazon, I always see the average rating and how many ratings there are before scrolling down to read the individual reviews - skipping most of what's in between.

Amazon is an excellent example. They show not only average rating (like RM) and how many rated, but also a differentiation how many of those have rated 5 stars, 4 stars, 3 stars etc.

I do think everybody is used to Amazon's way of presenting it. So why reinvent the wheel? Just copy it and everybody is happy. Of course please let the user search/filter for the 4 stars or 1 stars ratings. I do this all the time at amazon, to get a better indication on whether the negative rating on a product is realistic...
