In addition to the favourites stars, would it not be a good idea to have a rating system of 1 to 5 stars, or a point system from 1-10? Would be good if some reasonably objective measuring criteria could be developed?

What about a complement system, where you rate it as interesting, beautiful, artistic, ... This way we do not have any hating.
Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
That would be a good way of doing the rating - avoids the "hating" as you described.

Also then you have more search pivots. Like show me the most "artistic" synths.

for the reall synth buffs we could add "technical"

Would this be a multi-select, or each user could only choose one per synth?
Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
yes - I think that would be the way to go - otherwise we need a rating scale within each category...then we might get back to "hating"?

But if you could only select one, it would prevent people from selecting everything for their synths and their friend's synths.  I am not suggesting a rating scale per category, just a radio button selection to choose from one a a few categories.  This way you'd have to choose how a particular synth accels most and thus the ratings would be more meaningful, don't you think?
Fred_Oxford (Over 1 year ago)
Agreed - that is what I meant - choosing one from a few categories. Sounds good.
