do you think ratings are good ?

Do you think that ratings among designers or indeed professors in design is a good thing ?
I seem to see a lot of that online especially on North american and european sites. How much would you trust them ?

To determine whether it is good or not is one thing, while to determine whether the ratings are trust-worth is another thing.

It’s good and helpful for designers to see their ratings in various formats unless the designer(s) is/are not aspirant.

So far as I know, most ratings are trust-worth, although their criteria are variant.
