What's with all the 5*s?
One thing that has annoyed me quite alot lately is knex guns that would have sucked 3 years ago getting a 5* rating.
If you look at the rating system five stars is "best ever" now correct me if I'm wrong but is a piece of trash block trigger gun really the best ever? In my opinion all instructables should be rated for what they are worth instead of just giving a high rating to appear nice.
I know many people will play the "it's my first..." card but I find that to be a pathetic excuse. No person's first creation can be the "best ever" thear is always room for improvement. Also shame on those of you who rate everything 5*s, rating for you has become a meaningless action.
So by all means post your guns, just don't have a fit when somebody rates it a 2 or 3, it's probably what it deserved, also learn to take constructive critisism, people like DJ know their stuff and can help you improve your building skills, but there is a difference between constructive critisism and bagging somebody elses creation.
If you don't like what I'm saying go ahead, rate this .5, heck while you're at it rate all of my stuff .5, with people giving everything a 5 the rating system seems pretty much worthless to me anyway.
So next time you check out a new gun, try to give it the rating it deserves.
