    One change was the bigger rating box on the description, but I think that the box responsible for all this increase in ratings is the "Want quick suggestions?" box that appears on the play store home. On this box you can rate random installed or unistalled apps, but only give stars, you canīt write a comment from here, so is totally useless for developers we canīt know why the user is giving 1, 2, or 3 stars. Also is very easy to give accidental ratings, I tested my self starting with 1 star and oops when I released the finger the app was rated with 1 star and the box show me another random app, so to fix this bad rating I had to search the application on the play store and rate it again with the more safe description box, but do you think that lazy users will do that?

    This box will help users to get content that they like, but google play needs to ad a way for prevent accidental ratings and if is a bad rating give the option to write a comment so developers we can fix the issue or defend ourselves through the developer console response system, now my rating is decreasing every day and I donīt know what to do because I donīt have any information. As I said on my first post my competitors are decreasing too some faster than others because have less ratings and the 1 stars madness have more impact on their stats.

    Could you record that "feature" and upload it to youtube? Maybe we should spread a word about it, to reddit or some android portals (like Android Police - they always analyze new google play updates).

    IMHO everytime user click on any stars, there should be some confirmation dialog. It's stupid that clicking on star already "commits" your choice.

    I already have 4.5.10 on my phone, seems it keeps on asking for stars till you give 4+ and then presents an app similar to one just rated. On the other hand I made * and ** ratings and the dialog to rate yet another app was still there.

    looking for positives - the rankings will be less prone to "paid 5* reviews"

    I am also victim of this. User said excellent in the comment but gave 1 star. Happening with so many apps. Rankings are dropping due to bad ratings. I think it is a bad time to publish new apps/games. Hold on till christmas. Should be fixed by google.
