Ratings on developers


Recommended Posts

Proposal: Add a rating system to developers on either the forums or discord, possibly even both. Maybe even put a bit of text with your writing, kind of like a review.

Why:

1. You can maybe judge them off of their ratings.

2. You can give the honest and up-front perspective of your experience with them.

3. Many, many more reasons, put your honest opinion below. v

Here, I made some pros and cons for you.

Pros:
1. It helps people not get scammed. If you happen to get scammed, you can give the scammer a 1 star rating and tell people they scammed you to help the next person who tries them not get scammed.
2. It helps you understand if someone is actually good at what they do. If they promise they're insanely good at building, but they give you something that's just average, give them a 2-3 star rating and write that they were not actually incredibly good but good if you're desperate.
3. Gives the player who's getting ratings honest feedback for their work.

Cons:
1. People can bot systems, such as rating a great developer with hundreds of 1 star reviews.
2. People could write fake reviews because they don't like someone.
3. Some people have higher standards than others, and one person might say they're amazing at building, and one might say they're terrible at building. That could confuse any buyers.

Hope you like them.

 To your point on number 1, simply just push all ratings through this website, or through some form of rating system that cannot be botted easily. To monitor botting, just log each rating to a user, and if 1 user starts getting a lot of ratings all at once, lock their rating and investigate.

As a developer though, this is an excellent idea!
