good afternoon, so one of our users (El-bing ) wrote us about the rating system and we think its worth mentioning his point.
“I always hesitate to give someone top marks, like 5 out of 5 or the 'Print this' rating, and I think it's a bit easy to award someone such a high rating... I think it might make things much more interesting and would make readers/users/other writers engage a lot more if you had to 'justify' a 5/5 rating... like; if you wanted to give someone (articles/photos etc) a top rating you would have to accompany that rating with some sort of comment... “
Why not? It sounds like a reasonable idea because by giving someone 5 out of 5 means that you want this article (or photos etc…) to go into print…So if you believe that the content should receive such a high rating, it be great to if you could comment on why this you think this piece of content deserves such a rating…
Thanks for that Chris…
