    This comment has nothing to do with the weekly newsletter but rather with the star system.
    99% of the time when I read a new post, it’s voted to 5/5 stars by one, or several readers. What’s the point with the star system if you just keep voting 5 all the time. The majority of post doesn’t deserve a 5. Why don’t we just give every post a 5 star rating by default? I want people to start realizing that the star system is useless the way people abusing it now. I would like people to imagine the best post the could possible be made to OpenSUSE news. Lets give that post a 5 star rating. The imagine the worst post. And give that a 0 rating. Based on that, you can now more easily set an appropriate star rating on other posts instead of the usual 5 most of you guys do. I had to go around and give posts a low rating just because all these 5/5 just looked so ridiculous.

      I personally see no reason for rating news articles. I would like to see the whole rating system of articles stopped.

        I agree. I see no reason to rate news. So what if most people think it is not great? does that mean the rest should not read it? News will be news, small, big as long as they are relevant to the site people have the ability to see the title and choose to read or not to read. It’s a personal question/answer.

      thats how apple does things, if you goto their website and look at what they rate their products its always 5 of 5. and i agree this should be stopped

      Do you really the “star systems” is very important? It is just used for all the site, news, articles and stuff. Just don’t pay attention to it. Asking to modify the site to remove it seems just a waste of time to me.

    I was wondering who should I contact to help with translating the weekly news into polish language??
    Any help highly appreciated.

    I saw an example of a rating system that I thought worked. It was on a poker site. You could vote -1, 0 or +1. It was very intuitive. If you didn’t like the article, -1. If you liked it +1. 0 if you didn’t care. And than a sum of it all. For me, this was really helpful when scanning articles. Would’ve been helpful in the RSS-feed to.
