Review quality should matter
Obviously there is a flaw in the way ratings are now determined.
Essentially @NianticAaron saying “Wayfarer rating is based on the number of agreements and disagreements.” at: https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/37139/rating-dropped
is the same thing as saying rating is based on the number of TRUE and FALSE answers on a TEST.
Shouldn’t the correct answer be a factor?
If anyone reviewing deservingly rejects ANY submission that should cause the rating to go up, not down.
If Niantic does not have a way to determine if the QUALITY of the review is correct (meaning legitimate rejects do not negatively impact rating) then that is a problem that needs to be corrected.
Left as is you are opening the door to even more abusive submissions and based on recent reviews I have seen and read about here, this is already happening. Is this what you want?
Niantic please get your act together. It stands to reason that long time reviewers with very high reviews and great ratings prior to this change should have earned a little respect and have their opinions valued not insulted by telling us how to improve our reviews.
