For most of my extensions i had over 20 votes "5", suddenly almost all my extensions are without rating at all, another one has rating "2"
Hope this is temporary development problem...
New OpenCart site and forum is flooded with bugs and looks like nobody cares about fixing them. Just accept it as a fact. They recently rolled up a new forum theme, which is absolutely unusable. Tons of people asked about reverting back or giving an option to select another theme - nothing happened, we're still using this crap, which constantly looses login session and has a messy layout. Rating system, reviews... bah! Who cares?
That's likely why ratings look off, since not many people are using the new rating system yet.
So all votes that was done last years will no longer be counted?
VERY funny, because some of my extensions are 4+ years old and they now looks like noone rated them at whole...
All courtships to my extensions are under the cat's tail...
i don't think that this is the right approach, i think old votes should be merged with the new ones
The same should be with the reviews
Just my opinion
This is unfortunate that years worth of reviews are completely wiped out. Us developers worked hard to earn those reviews.
Another issue with the current review system is that it uses PHP Floor when calculating the average rating. This means that if a developer gets a single 4 star rating, they will only ever be able to have a maximum of a 4 star rating on their extension, regardless of how many 5 star reviews follow. This is something I brought to Daniel's attention and hopefully it gets patched after OC Cloud is launched for beta.

The new rating system isn't working anyway, it shows # review(s) but no stars are lit up
Also, can no longer filter out Commercial vs Free - Clicking Commercial still shows Free extensions.

My support mails are ignored! Last mail I received a mail from support was 5 days ago and they told me "We have a small delay on the payoneer and our director will send it out today."
Small delay? Every month 10-15 days?
Do you guys are aware developers need to pay their billings? I understand a "small delay" but it's became something regular.
I am thinking taking down all my extensions on the site and finding another platform to sell my extensions.
At least you could post an announcement on the forum or send an email to developers if you don't have time to answer support mails.
He said he might import ratings back into the system for commercial extensions only. His concern with free downloads is that the old rating system could be cheated as anyone can create multiple accounts and rate it.
I also mentioned that the current rating is averaged, then uses PHP floor() to get the star rating. This should be changed to PHP round() so that an overall rating of 4.5+ (including 4.99999) doesn't get dropped to 4 stars.
After wiping out old ratings, its rating was 5 by one review 7 days ago. But suddenly, its rating has dropped to 3 because last two purchasers has rated it as worst or average. Although they did not even contact me with their issues or did not ask for any support request. Not sure, it is intentional or something else
Another module had 50+ ratings and average was 5. Now it is downgraded to 4.
Daniel should consider about old ratings.
I've added this as one of the marketplace changes here.
Yeah seems, that is the reason.
Thank you for the link. Checking there.
