# 5 Star Rating System 
October 18th, 2009, 5:41 am
Hey everyone, I was just thinking about how to improve how people show their love for artists and their artwork. Yatima brought up a good point. The current rating system is annoying in my opinion. It's tough to manage which artists and artwork are your favorite.

So, I might revamp the entire system. I was thinking about changing it so that when you click "watch this artist", the artist is bookmarked and you get notified of all new art that is upload by that artist. This feature would only be available to FAA members (artists, people with an album). When people want to rate artwork, they can do so by rating it using a 5 star rating system. 1 star for "this is terrible", 5 stars for "this is amazing". This would give people more incentive to rate pictures, and it would be easy to see the most popular and most loved art.

I'm posting this because I'd like to hear everyone's comments or suggestions! Should I go along with this?

I think this is a great idea Moka! The only downside I could think of is if people slack off and don't rate artists could get discouraged, or if they get low ratings. It should be inspiration to try harder but in reality it might kill an artists confidence. I'm not trying to pick apart your idea or shoot it down just looking at all the possibilities. :) I still think it's a good idea though. I definitely like the notifications on favorite artists uploads. That's cool. :)

Hmm.... maybe it would be possible to use both the 5 star and favorites systems? Kind of what they have in DA and YouTube. :hmm2: Sorry, just an opinion lol.

Yeah that's possible too!

Well I don't know. If someone was a determined artist, they wouldn't be discouraged by poor ratings. They would keep trying until they become great artists. If they aren't very determined, then they shouldn't even care about the ratings people give their artwork :P

Just a thought..
