    From last few months, we are getting a serious problem on our team's plugins & theme reviews.

    Most peoples writing fake review on our plugins & themes.

    We reported to the moderator. Moderator deleted those fake reviews, but this effect our plugins average ratting. And all fake deleted review ratings still used in calculation of average ratting.

    So, WordPress moderator team you should think about this problem.

    Every themes & plugins developers spending much more efforts to make their contribution for WordPress.ORG community.

    So, please take this issue seriously to make WordPress Community More Genuine & Long Live.

    Thanks

    Hi

    I am too badly effected with this.

    Losing on sales after these fake reviews.

    So there must a process through which these fake reviews are monitored , removed without causing any damage to average rating.

    WordPress Community wake up. Please consider it seriously.

    We devote lot of time and effort to make these things and one just come's and assign a 1 star rating without any reason .. Absolutely Heart Breaking.

    Thanks

  4. This forum is for ideas for core.

    We're aware of fake reviews, we actually clean them out regularly,but a high number of devs will report legit reviews they don't like as fake too. The review total value gets recalculated regularly.

    If you see a fake review, tag it with modlook and someone will check it.
