rating for addons

Why don't you add 5-star rating for addons? it would be much more easier and better to choose an addon according not to quantity of downloads but to campain's rating

This has been suggested before, and it is unlikely to happen. Dugi also wrote an implementation here, but it didn't end up going anywhere.

Actually I think it is easely possible to create a rating system independent from official resources.

Look for example, that guy already parsed all campaigns from add-ons server -
http://knal.ga/Wesnoth_addons/1.12/

Only things needed to add there are star system and ability to post a feedback.

P.S. And ye, I already PMed gnombat (a creator of knal.ga) about this.

Yes, I've been planning to add some sort of review and/or rating feature there. I've been busy and haven't had much time for Wesnoth-related stuff recently, including working on that site, but hopefully that feature will get added at some point.
