Just re-reading what I wrote in my original email, I realise that I didn't actually say what I meant.
I didn't mean that there were many 4 & 5 star ratings ... rather I meant that there were quite a lot of ratings that were higher than they probably should be, based on the guidelines.
I agree with David that is good to ignore other ratings when trying to rate a photo so as not to influence your own assessment, but it is definitely interesting to compare your own assessment with others once you've made your choice.
I also agree with Ryu in that people do have different standards regarding photos and that is where the guidelines are so useful and important.
I guess my comments were really meant to highlight the fact that it is important to read and follow the guidelines, so that ratings are meaningful.
To quote part of the Guideline intro ....
"The purpose of rating photos and sounds is to help bring the highest quality media to the surface, in a rapidly growing collection. Please be conservative when rating media, and follow the guidelines outlined ....."
