[resolved] Why Are Plugin Authors Allowed To Rate Their Own Plugins? (3 posts)

    Isn't that biased?

  2. I agree but when they post anything about their plugin (or theme) the BIG GREEN LABEL notification gets appended to the post. People can make up their own mind and while the reviews are gamed I don't think it's a big problem.

    Although if I ever do publish a plugin in the repo I do plan to review it with 5 stars and include the words "My wife says this plugin is the BEST." ;)

    The thought crossed my mind for ... all of .5 seconds. What's the point of reviewing ones own plugin?

    I know what it does - and it does it well for me. If my plugins never get a review, but continue to receive downloads, I'll take that as a sign that people at least find them useful enough (or find that they seem useful enough) to take a chance on them.
