I can understand that allowing everyone to rate mods is a very democratic option, but i'm afraid it won't end up with the best results. Ratings are supposed to give users an idea od mod's quality, based on criteria, but with the current system the vast majority of ratings are 5 stars, most of them without any words justifying it and many of them given even without any test in game. I wonder if administrators can eventually make an analysis of the most common rating given by people. 5 stars will be around 80 percent or more, when it should indeed be given only to the best mods. So my suggestion is that the rating staff might be back, choosing some of the most honorable members of this community for that purpose. I'm also sympatethic with the idea of people being able to rate. So maybe 2 separate rating systems could be usefull. One from people in general and other from official rating team. At the moment i hardly feel the ratings are usefull, apart from some comments that are made with criteria. In fact they might be measleading users instead of helping the choice. Just imagine a mod that might even be nice looking, but it has no lods and will end up lagging the game. Should it be a 5 stars one? I also think there could be accurate criteria, altough we should keep it simple. For example: Usability (some mods are simple but very usefull and they should be rated accordingly) Functionality Design Textures Performance friendly Well, this is just an idea but i think we need a rating system that can actually be helpfull, with proper criteria. These are my 5 cents for sure.
