    MM app store rating

    Post  paulinelhg on Sun Aug 12, 2012 4:42 am

    There were many comments / post about people rating MM app to be 1 star

    Checked it out yesterday and saw only 22 "1 star rating"

    Selected 1 star and post a review title " MM is most expensive 'free game'"

    It doesn't allow me to post, despite repeated attempts.

    Today I checked back, it has 23 "1star" rating. Mine was uploaded.

    So, friends, please check back that your rating and comments were added!

    In contrast, there are 1130 "5 stars" rating out of total 1441 votes.

    Is this rating system skewed???

    I think it is skewed due to the offer of 5 diamonds for a rating when you are in the early stages of playing. Diamonds are scarce at that point and you haven't found the pitfalls of the game yet!

    I suspect Apple have noticed the comments about GI giving diamonds for 5 star reviews now Wink Notice the star rating is down to 2 for MM in the top grossing apps list. It was 5 star at number 3 yesterday and today it is 2 star at number 6. Yay for consumer power - it got rid of Aparteid in S Africa in the 80s after all Wink

    There seems to be some confusion as to why people are seeing different ratings for this game. Apple has different stores for different areas of the world. For example, I live in the USA; if I travel to Europe I can't use the app store or iTunes since the coding is different than for Europe than it is for the US. To sum up we need to encourage everyone from all countries around the world to unite and rate the game accordingly. Hope this helps

    I went to iTunes today and took a look. My 1-star review is there. However, the option of answering 'Was this review helpful? yes/no' doesn't seem to be working so I couldn't downvote the 5 star bribee's. I did however 'Report a concern', where I pointed out I disagreed with the review because GI were bribing people for those 5 stars!

    From the UK, as of today: 2 stars/168 total ratings: 5 stars/22, 1 star/111 and a few sitting on the fence inbetween. It is working!

    [Someone even has a negative review called Bribe, where they mention the 5 star/5 diamond bribe, lol. Get in! Twisted Evil ]

    With just about every update I've gone in and rated the game, never better then 3 stars. I have always pointed out in my comments that the majority of 5 star ratings are due to the fact that they got free in app currency for the rating. Make sure to include that in your comments section! Very Happy

    Is it horrible that it tickles me to see that MM has dropped from the the number 3 top grossing app to number 7 in the last 15 hours?

    That makes you a terrible person. And me! bounce Power to the people! bounce

    Well, power to MMUFF members anyway. Depressingly, all those FB people are too busy queuing up for their auditions for The Jeremy Kyle Show, rather than get involved.

    Next on The Jeremy Kyle Show:
    'I left you/had a baby with a stranger/slept with your mother/robbed my family' c'os they like promised me MM diamonds mate!'

    Google 'Jeremy Kyle' if you don't get it!!!

    [oops, should have said 'the majority of FB people' perhaps! Watching my reputation on here slide right down now!] Oh well, que sera sera.

    They have been knocked down to #10 in the US on the list of top grossing apps.

    Still at a 2 star rating though. We need to encourage more people to rate the app with one star!

    I have been marking the 1 star reviews as helpful and the 4 and 5 star reviews as not helpful so hopefully the more critical reviews will begin to show up on the front page of the app.

    You can only rate the reviews as helpful or not helpful from a computer through iTunes/store not through the iPad

    Also, if you are on your computer, you have the option to report a review to Apple. I chose a 5 star review and reported it, stating that GI inflates their ratings by rewarding their brand new customers with in app currency for writing a five star review.

    Canadian app store 2 stars average, 76 ratings. And it is not in the top 100 apps. It is 23 for top grossing.

    can't review game

    Post  Pulicat on Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:29 pm

    i tried to post a comment, but the app store says I haven't downloaded the game.I tried posting both through the app store on my computer, and on my iPad.
    Guess what- the game is on my iPad and I've been playing it for a month.
    Also, I lost diamonds!! Down from 18 to 5 -no reason.

    This happened to me too. Then I realized that I had downloaded the game under a different Apple ID than the one I was currently signed in to. Do you happen to have a couple different iTunes accounts in the family?

    rated MM 1star again for version 1.12

    Post  paulinelhg on Tue Oct 16, 2012 10:53 pm

    Last night I rated MM 1star and posted a comment

    The most expensive 'free game'

    despite asking players for feedback on Game Insight face book page, they decide to make the game more costly to play, against most player appeal.

    Despite the previous boycott and collective appeal for players not to buy diamonds, rate MM 1 star, GI appear to listen n issue out an official reply, citing more often than not, " this is because of balance of game". Give out 50 diamonds.

    This new upgrade on Selena room brought along quest that requires insane amount of oil can and a low drop rate. There are other challenging requirements, an estimate cost to open Selena room is $$200 plus. This means estimate 1500 to2000 diamonds.

    I love challenges n like to solve mysteries, but will not pay to just open 1room n be frustrated with game crashing on me even in own manor, fear of losing all the collection that I've acquired because some players do have to start over with each new update.

    Like your review Pauline and thanks for the reminder. I was thinking earlier today I should go and rate MM again but with the usual weekday morning rush it slipped my mind. Off to do it now Smile
