As of the 1st of April Tes have notified us authors that the Tes Picks symbol will be removed from all resources and won't be added to any new resources. I am fine with that. Tes continue by saying - quote "We believe that a more accurate indication of quality is the popularity of a resource as shown by the ratings and reviews left by users who've downloaded or purchased it.' This is absolutely codswallop! Everyone knows that ratings and reviews are hard to come by. My own best selling resources which I have sold in the sum of over 3 digits, between them I have received 1 solitary review. And I am sure I am not alone in saying that ratings and reviews at this present time are definitely NOT an indication as to the quality or popularity of a resource. So Tes need to come up with a different approach to identify/reward quality and popular resources. Maybe when a resources sells 'x' amount of times it could automatically get some kind of rating. This lets the buyer know that it is a genuine popular resource. What do others think?
