As you probably know from previous discussions, the rating-system is a source of joy as well as grief and disappointment among the members who post projects here.
I’ve understood that the team wants to keep the ratings (through the massive silence surrounding the subject), which is fine and your choice, obviously, but PLEASE correct the way ratings are calculated!
If you’ve taken any math studies at all you’ll know that 4+5=4,5 which will – by mathematical laws – be abbreviated to 5, NOT 4.
Except for here, that is.
It even seems like 4 + 5 + 5 + 5 = 4, at least in the ratings at Burdastyle.
If it was the other way around (that projects got too high ratings due to miscalculations) it’d be fine, then it would be encouraging people to sew more, but the way it is now it’s not ok.
You make people sad, and those of us who like to show appreciation through the ratings rather than discouragement give ratings to no avail, they disappear underneath a few low ratings no matter how many of us give top marks.
So, please, please, please, correct this, or change the system to a simple thumbs up/thumbs down.
Agree!! I wish I could print to a plotter here at work ..sure would save time!
