- one system instead of two
- the author gets notified once someone "like watched" the resource
- my personal opinion is that the resources are a bit cluttered:
--> you can like a resource
--> you can rate a resource
--> you can watch a resource
From my point of view, it all comes down to a "great, lets keep in touch" relationship with the resource.
When I download a resource, I think I will also automatically watch it.
In case I don't want to install the resource but like its idea and maybe will later install it, I will watch it.
To give a "thanks, great idea" to the author even when I do not install it and dont even look at its code, I "like" the resource.
I wouldn't change the system now, it's just a basic idea - I haven't thought it through - to keep things simpler and more straight forward.
