If you video users (webcam on top of screen) and use screen recording software with a 'screen in screen facility to record the two feeds together then you will have a recording of users facial reactions as they complete tasks. This will give you a broad brush guide to their emotional reactions from their facial expressions. Lots of stressed expressions ...

Not really on the question of stars, but on the difference between 1-7 (Likert-like) scales and like/dislike options: If you use the mathematical average for the 1-7 scales, there's no difference between the case where everyone voted 4 and the case where half voted 1 and half voted 7.

Most star rating systems are iconic fixed-step gauges, often they’re interactive. Rating = number of visible or lit stars Rating may be ...

This really depends on your game. It's very similar to dealing with trolls: if their only goal is to upset other users and to break the rules, then detention is exactly the kind of attention they're craving for. In this case kicking the user or putting them into detention might have the same effect. They might just come back as a different character and the ...
