Reasons for rating.

  • 3 votes

People should have to give a reason for the rating that they gave a resource. Otherwise someone might rate a resource as 2 stars, and the person who made it will not know how to improve it.

This will allow a person to improve their resources so that people find them more useful.

Hi Tilly

That's an interesting point. We think we can improve these ratings and comments in a few ways.
We will make sure we look at this when we do.

Thanks so much for your thoughts

This is a really good idea and yeah we should be able to see who rates our resources

It would also be easier if people commented because then they could tell you whats wrong in that way. But it would be better if a box came up telling someone to comment why they rated

thanks. I only thought about this because i once found a 2 star rated document which turned out to be really good, and i thought that whoever gave it 2 stars should have a reason so that the creator can improve it.

Yeah, i mean if you didn't like the product it would make alot of sense to explain why otherwise they needn't have rated it i suppose. I've never thorght of it that way before.

I do think its good to see who rated documents and the score given as there is a community here which would certainly benefit. It's just a case of getting this in the development list so prioritising against lots of other improvements :)

Thanks for keeping the feedback coming
