Would definitely like to see the review system stay. Leave that as the only way to rate a D-Mod with a number. I wouldn't mind a "Thumbs up/ Like" system but a "Thumbs down" system might be discouraging to D-Mod makers. Thumbs up shouldn't effect the review score of the Mod though.

You could have something like Rotten Tomatoes has, where you have the "audience score" in addition to the reviews. You could keep the reviews, and have them be the only thing affecting a D-Mod's standing, but you could add a thumbs up/thumbs down voting system on each D-Mod too, that's easy to just click real quick and shows how the casual players enjoyed it. However, if something like this was implemented, I don't think it should be a "this many thumbs up vs. this many thumbs down" type of deal. Instead, there should be one score that isn't able to go below 0, and a vote down would always reduce one up vote. With how little motivation there is to make D-Mods these days, there's no need to have anyone's D-Mods getting like -20 thumbs down, and drive away the few people that still like to develop them. Obviously one vote per person should be allowed only, so I'm not sure how you could make this something that random site visitors could do as well.
