New add review less inviting to add new reviews

It's a user experience defect compared to a prior version.

In the prior version of Plugin directory there was a "My Rating" section under The Reviews with 5 empty stars that gave user a feeling that adding a review is just as easy as clicking the right number of starts. Afterwards they were redirected to a full review form.

On the contrary the 3.0 version has a "Add my review" button that redirects users to the same form.

It was - in my opinion - the "old" version is better in terms of inviting users to add a review, as it gives them a feeling of an instant reward just by clicking the number of stars. Then, when the full form is displayed they are more motivated to finish what they have started.

My suggestion would be to keep the "My rating" section from the previous version. Additionaly changing "My rating" string into "Add my review" could be a good idea as it is much more clear call to action.

Ideally, would it be better from a UX perspective to have a modal (or something similar) come up and fill out their review without actually leaving the page?

  • Status changed from new to closed

I think this is a good general idea, but needs a more specific proposal before we can act on it.
