Are you kidding me people! Reply

    Seriously I swear someone on here needs to grow up. Going around rating all my items a 2 is not going to help you make more money. I never rate anyone poorly let a lone rate items that I am not 100% sure do not print beautifully. It seems like this happens every time a new designer shows up on the site. I am getting a little tired of it!!! One I just posted last week hmmm 3 ratings at 2.3 Really? Than why are people buying it?
    I would love for people to have to leave a comment for the reason behind there ratings. It has bugged me for a while but this week is rediculous!

    and if you are going to vote low at least have the decency to describe why because every designer on here I am sure would want to improve their designs.

RE:Are you kidding me people! Reply

    I was really upset a few months ago and posted about it too. One of the customers commented that they felt horrible because they thought the way the rating system worked was that if they liked an item they clicked a star. They thought every time someone clicked on the star the rating went up. The more people who clicked the higher the rating, hence a bunch of designers getting 1 star ratings. But, if you are getting 2 star votes that theory wouldn't fit.......it would be nice if Artscow got rid of the rating all together.

    Sorry this has happened to you, I know how you feel, it's not much fun. I really, really hope it was for the above reason and not someone being spiteful. :(

    I know how you feel. For awhile, every time I entered a new contest someone came along and rate me with a 1. It was happening to a lot of us - in fact a thread was started about it. What really ticked me off was the fact that I knew my designs printed great, as I had printed a lot of them - so it was spite or jealousy. Because if someone doesn't like what we make - hey that's fine it's personal taste. But no need to be vindictive about it.

RE:RE:Are you kidding me people! Reply

    thanks ladies I am glad I am not the only one feeling this way. I thought the rating system was to help buyers to know if a product printed good or was quality work etc. It just made me mad that I know how hard we all work on these kits, many of which we offer for free so people do not need to buy them.
    I really hope it was not being spiteful because how can someone not like someone or there work if they have not even met them. It was so frustrating.
    I know many do not even look at ratings, but if some one new came and did not know it could discourage them away from purchasing my templates.
    After all we are all just trying to add income to our families.
    I too would like to see that rating system disapeer.

    Danielle ... I think we have all had that happen. It happened to me recently with every design I put into the gallery. And I also think that it was another designer. I can see if it was on items that never sold but it was on everything I posted for awhile. I think us designers should cheer each other on. I know I private messaged a designer at Christmas because her sales were absolutely fabulous. I messaged her 'Congratulations, You go Girl!" because it was awesome. I agree, I wish people would comment more often too.

    I have felt this EXACT way too.... I'm sorry you had someone do this. I have had this happen too.
    I completely dislike the rating system the way it is. I could find use in it IF someone that actually had something printed with the design could rate it.

    I thought a long time ago, someone started a yahoo group for the designers- would anyone be interested in this?

    Yes I agree also. Can not see the value in the rating system. I too have had designs rated at 5 star and in a blink of an eye they are back to 2 or 3 stars. I think the problem is that it is not explained to viewers of the gallery how to use the rating system. May be this point should be addressed!

    Its such a shame that malicious behaviour can cause such upset. I try and ignore the ratings as ultimately the customer is the judge and will buy the design if they like it.
    I agree we should all support each other. I have several
    AC designer friends on facebook. Have a look in your friend requests for Catherine R if you haven't accepted my request yet

    Sorry to hear about this Danielle. I hope the who made that low rating can contact you and explain why she's not satisfied with your product just like what you've said.

    Maybe an envy designer or people who have nothing to do at all did this and that is so sad.

    In my opinion, the ratings are useless and should be eliminated.

    It seems to me that it often boils down to who has friends/family who will rate their kits high.

    (I am not a designer, but I use lots of kits which suit my needs.)

    Cecilia ... you should also find a FAIR way to run the Kits contest. The people that win are the people who have the most friends on facebook etc. Sorry guys, I just don't think that contest is fair. The winner should be the person who's kit IS PURCHASED the most or used the most to purchase items in Artscow. Anyone can hit 'add to my kits' but USING THE KIT FOR A PURCHASE would truly be a fairer way to run the contest.

    Isn't the voting for us, the consumer, to give our honest opinions? I voted 2 on three of you kits because I thought that is what they deserved. I didn't like them. I didn't rate your wedding kit but should have. The one with the white dove png that looks very bad and is unusuable. The rating system is to judge and that is my opinion of your kits. I just don't like them. Will not rate anymore of them because I won't be using them. There are some designers that I really like and some I don't. You just happen to be a don't. I do not design kits so did not rate for any other reason except I don't like the way some of the clipart looks. Very muted. Go look at that dove people and you will see what I am talking about. Don't remember the name of that kit. Bad.

    Danielle I think your kits are gorgeous! I wish I was as talented as you are. I had the same thing happen to alot of my templates around Christmas time or when there was a really good sale on an item I would get a few ratings like that. I hope you keep designing and are not discouraged by it.

    Each person is entitled to their own opinion.
    I've said this before but no harm in repeating it, if people like a design they will buy it - Plenty of people like Danielles designs, she is number 2 this week and that says everything.
