I have always thought that the rating-system here on BA.org is abit weird, with a 5-graded scale starting with the two lowest ranks as ‘bad’ and even ‘terrible’. Isn’t this quite unusual and unneccessary? To be honest, how often do you even care about rate a picture that you feel is bad? And this theory is approved by looking at the Finished Projects section, hardly any below three stars.
So my suggestion is to have it moved to only positive ratings, giving a higher resolution on the ratingscale, starting with one star as ‘avarage’ instead.
