It would be nice for there to be some scale to give an idea what each star level in the five star review scale equates to. For example, it could be that when a user hovers over a star on the 'Give it a rating' part of the review (as below), it displays a word or short phrase suggesting what that star level is equivalent to. I know that when leaving a star review on Goodreads (quite different to Slow Ways but similar in the five star rating system), the star levels are:
1: 'did not like it'
2: 'it was ok'
3: 'liked it'
4: 'really liked it'
5: 'it was amazing'
I'm not necessarily suggesting we adopt these descriptions wholesale (I imagine most people wouldn't equate two stars to 'ok'), but something like this could be useful to ensure people are reviewing on a similar scale (ie one person's three stars isn't equivalent to another's five stars).
