I have a interesting question I think.
I have always made decisions on what I buy in the themes and codecanyon sections in part by looking at the number of sales and star reviews. As a general rule less than 100 sales or less than 4 stars i wont buy unless it is the only option or a trusted developer who has just released a product.
Today I guess i wasn’t as busy as normal and took a little time to read the actual reviews on a product (does not matter which one) and what i saw was a majority of the 5 star reviews were by people with 1 - 4 years membership and only 1 or 2 purchases. I myself have made over 100.
So my conclusion is there must be people buying 5 star reviews.If that is the case surely envato could restrict people from making reviews until they have at least 10 - 20 items in their collections.
What are your thoughts?
