I have a proposal for fixing the problem of people forgetting to change the rating from the default 3 stars when they enjoyed the mission.

Instead of a 3 star default, make it blank. If you exit without picking one, you leave no rating at all, and nothing counts toward the total. If you pick something, however, you get 5 dilithium ore.

This will encourage people to rate missions, without requiring it of them, and without unbalancing the economy since dil ore is non-transferable and subject to refining maximums.

I very much like the idea of making it blank, so to rate a mission takes conscious thought, but I would be concerned about offering dilithium for it. I just have a vision of someone going through and 1-starring every mission he sees till he gets to his refining limit. Whatever we do, we must avoid rewarding drive-by star ratings.

I'm behind the blank star thing. The user should also be prompted to select one in if they had typed a review but left it blank.

Personally I'm for a binary system instead of a star-rating system, however I support syberghost's suggestion for a blank rating unless deliberately modified by the player.

Think he means thumbs up, I want to put mine in for a thumbs up on it too.

I`m for this too.

It would be nice to search for missions based on how much dilithium earned as well.
I think that one would be much more accurate.

Something like that, yes, but where replays from the same player would give more weight to that players' thumbs-up vote to reflect that players enjoy replaying the mission. This still leaves the problem of farm/grind-missions and balancing reward per time investment but at least a system like this is much less vulnerable to malicious voting meant to lower a missions' rating.

I belive this has been purposed, and ignored, several times already.

It's probably too much work for results that seem inconsequential to Cryptic/PWE, but whenever asked about this issue, my opinion ? regarding the 5-star system ? will never change.
