I don't know if I'm posting this in the right forum, but I think review ratings should affect the overall rating of the audio? You know? When someone rate the song in their review, it doesn't affect the actual rating itself.

I know that artists are BIG feedback freaks, me included, but you should focus more on making music than ratings, 0-bombing, hateful reviews...etc.

The rating in the review does not affect the score that's true, but why should it?
Does that mean you should be able to double vote: Both in the review and an ordinary vote?
Should you only be allowed to vote when you leave a review?
Or would there still be an option to vote anonymously?

Personally I like the system as it is. I think voting should always remain anonymously, because anonymous voting is what all fair systems are based on (like democracy).
Some people however like to give and/or receive feedback on the work here. That should be allowed to, because I think it's great if everyone can share their opinion if they want. The stars that come with the reviews are just a nice indication, nothing more.

I think this topic might better fit the zerovoting and exposure thread

Me, personally, I hate the rating system. Why? There are trolls out there that would rate music 0 out of 5 even though the music is pretty decent and doesn't deserve a zero. Ratings tell whether they're improving or not. I just think that the rating in the review should count towards the overall rating because why even bother having it if it doesn't count towards the actual rating.
