How do you rate knex guns?

How do you rate knex guns.

I rate it on this system (the stars are what i give or take from the base rating of a gun for that part):
Gun build- 1 star
looks- .5 stars
range- 1 star
Function- 2 stars
other opinions- .5 stars

If its a block trigger, It gets 0.5 stars, and it goes up from there (up to 3 stars)

what is your rating system?

sort by: active | newest | oldest

For me: 1. Looks. 2. Ease of following of the instructable. 3. Innovation. 4. Function.
Ease of following instructable has nothing to do with the actual gun.
When you rate, you're rating the Instructable, not the actual gun.
Not really. If I were to post instructions on how to fold a piece of paper in half, I doubt it would get a decent rating even with immaculate instructions.
But a good instructable on a fully automatic K'nex gun would get higher ratings than a bad one. I hope.
Yes, but what you were saying is that ratings were based PURELY on instructions.
Have you ever rated an instructable a bad rating because of the instructions. I consider it a factor, but not as big as the other ones I stated.
Yes I have rated an Instructable down because of the instructions, but those do not affect the gun. I personally think Instructables should have 2 rating systems; one for instructions and one for the actual product.
Yes, that is a good idea. Since we're stuck with this rating system now, how do you consider the ease of following the instructable? I think the mentality is that is the instructions are bad, then the rating is bad. But is the instructions are good, then people rate it on the performance rather than on the instructions and forget about rating. But I like the idea of two ratings. The only problem would be that it might get too complex.
Possibly. Maybe someone should suggest it to the admin...
