The talented folks behind the main WordPress.org site have rolled out a new review system for plugins and themes.

The new review system came from much discussion and an overall need to contextualize the star rating system. Now, if you wish to rate a plugin or a theme, you must also describe your rating decision in a brief review. The goal is that developers will hopefully be left with usable feedback to turn around 1-star ratings or feedback to carry over to their next project from the 5-star ratings, and potential users will be able to clearly see whether the reasons for a plugin or theme’s particular 1-star rating really has any impact on what they plan to use it for.

You can take a look at some sample ratings now by visiting the Hotfix plugin and the Twenty Twelve theme. So, what you waiting for? Get out there and leave some reviews for your favorite plugins!
