Mmm, I'm sorry but I'm not sure how this will show anything that stands up to any scrutiny. If a retailer scores zero, that could be because 100 people egave a thumbs up while 100 people gave a thumbs dow, or it could be because no-one has ordered from them. Two quite different situations both giving a final score of zero...

If you want to thumbs down put a comment against a retailer as to why.

I also don't feel we will get much useful information out of this scheme (I know it was first mooted for the US retailers).

The reason is most transaction from retailers tend to run smoothly. If they don't you soon find yourself out of business. So I would expect most/all of these retailers to have more thumbs up than down. I guess there would be some small value in the total number of thumbs down but not much without comments.

What is important as a potential customer is what happens when something doesn't run smoothly. How quickly does the retailer sort things out, hopefully to your satisfaction. How good are the communications and the delivery times, especially when the retailer is in another country.

As far as I am concerned I have had good experiences with all the retailers I have used. To be honest I have only had one hiccup in an order where some games were missing from a delivery. That was sorted out very quickly by the retailer and the missing games arrived two days later.
