I just took a 1/5 rating and no explanations. That's my first one. I already took a 2/5 before, with no explanations either. My mission have an average 3.8/5 rating for 50 people, which probably mean it's a good mission. Especially considering it's a french mission, and there isn't a lot of french player.
I suppose this bad rating comes from someone who didn't like something specific, or found a random bug (lots of bugs with s7). Or maybe it's a mistake. In any case I want to know why, see if I can improve my mission.

We spend hours to make those missions. Taking a 1 is not fun and I guess we all want to know why such a harsh criticism.

With many "new" people playing foundry mission, because of the "Investigate officer report" revamp, it will happen more than before.

That's why I suggest you can't earn a 1/5 rating with no comment. It will stop many mistakes, or at least show it was a mistake, and the comment may help us to improve our mission.

You aren't allowed to comment on a 'na' or 0 star rating. I've had to drop missions because I found them too confusing or bugged. In some cases I take the mission a second time to get to the right place.

Since when can you get zero stars? It used to be that 1 star was the lowest. Does a zero actually count toward the average rating?

I assumes he means 'doesn't leave a comment' and just canceling out. Maybe I'm wrong.

Is the mission in French?

Sadly, there are all too many English speakers who automatically assume that the world is "English or bust" and anything not English is too hard to comprehend (and an automatic 0/5)...

Sadly, I don't understand French, so I can't try the mission to see how good it really is. However, I hope you the best in your endeavors...

Still at it. CBS "restrictions" fell by wayside with freebie Breen. Time to re-examine ENT and ToS at tier 5, repurpose the Connie into Sci and rebuild an Akira escort into the "NX". 6 "eras", spread evenly over all the classes...

Yes, sorry about the confusion. It's a 1/5, IE the lowest rating. Editing my first post.
See, it's so new to me, I though it was a 0 !

Yes it is. I've check the "french mission" in the foundry. You can see it using the "custom" and "Fran?ais" filter, but you shouldn't be able to see it if you look for english/any missions. Also, the description and the title are in french.

It's more about the lack of explanation than a whine or rage about the rating. 1 bad rating is no big deal, but I think we all want to know why we take such a bad rating, when we take one, and a comment should be mandatory for the lowest rating.

Well, you are in good company. It happens to all of us. Some people are after missions, others have their own wants that they never share. Usually it's like "This isn't in my language" or "I got no drops" or even the famous "I don't like how this mission is on top of the list."

It's part of the authoring process. The only thing I can say is you have the support of the rest of the community. If you do good work, those little ratings will be out crowded by the good ones.

So don't give up! Keep it in there and keep at it!

Dont get to frustrated. When people search or browse the mission there is a language tab. If they are not using that, its their fault. Of course it wouldnt hurt to make sure you put what language the mission is in on the description. That would be another safeguard.

Hmm.... Where is the actual starting point for your mission?

I talked to Linnea and Ford, but when "De l'art de la patience" I couldn't figure out where to go.

No I don't actually speak french. That might have soemthing to do with it... heh...

For some reason it doesn't show on the map (never did), so I tell people where to go. In french, that's it^^
It's in front of the transporter room, in the corridor to the middle of ESD. There are 2 doors in front of each other, it's one of them (the one on your right if you are coming from the transporter room). If you use the "v"key or the scan button it should work. It did when I released the mission^^

I've translated the mission in english months ago, but not published it. My english is not really good, and I need to be sure everything is fine before releasing it, or I'll probably get bashed.

I've tested the mission several time, even yesterday, and everything is working. Yesterday some loading time were really long, and some ships vanish in the end (same bug than with the ships in the narendra patrol mission, probably because it's the same ships), but it's working. For some reason the vanishing ship count as "dead".

Thanks for trying anyway, that was nice of you

I didn't put it was a french mission in the description. I use the "french" option in the editor however, and the french description should make it quite obvious^^
I checked yesterday, and the mission doesn't show up using "custom + english" or just "custom" filter. you really need to use "custom + french" filter.
