Seems like I see/hear more and more authors getting protest ratings about things that either were out of their control or not something the work even offered in the first place. It baffles me why people would search through a choice of thousands of tracks, choose one, then decide it wasn’t any good! Why? I can understand maybe a three/four star rating if it was all that could fit a theme (even though that stretches credibility with the insane selection on offer). Mostly you get authors asked to customise dirt cheap stock audio for no extra money amd then down rated because they had the good sense to say no.
All our work is subject to a strict review process to make sure lower quality items are filtered out…so what is the point of a rating system? Surely because our work has been allowed to be sold then it is five star quality already?
I’ve never had any problems with any of this and every one who bought my tracks went off and enjoyed life as far as I know but I can see how frustrating it must be to feel pressured or bullied by purchasers who might abuse the rating system for their own gain or self importance.
Good luck with sales everyone!
