Rating tips

Why a post about ranking ?

Giving 20/20 only “because it’s cool”, and conversely 0/20 only “because I don’t like it” generally end up giving a uninteresting ranking. Because of this, here are a few tips :

First, don’t give an opinion just after download, that’s better to leave a first impression comment !

that proves there are a few things to improve for the next time.
This is how we learn.

This is the right time to help the author understand what works and what doesn’t, for example :

If you don’t know how to give constructive feedback, or if you don’t know what rate it deserve, have a look at the rating reference. Then just follow the form to have the grade ! You may give the custom code of your rating so that the author can see what he can improve.
