I've had a couple now. It sucks the first time, now i ignore them. 

Same with some people and comments. A few people really, really think your story should be something else, or want to nitpick details about your story. I've had complaints of too much world building, not a slow enough story, too slow of a story, they don't like jokes, too much stats and blue boxes in a Litrpg, want me to change the main plot of the story, don't like snarky comments from the game, etc etc etc. Other people say the opposite. Can't please everyone so I keep writing and hopefully please some people.

Yes, sadly that has been my experience also. People saying they find my system 'annoying' etc. I guess just ignoring them is the way, it still hurts how much it reduces the avg. rating of the story though.

Thanks for the advice!

Medium well, just under the burnt yet crispy side as well. Um…a large shake, whichever, doesn’t matter. Three sides of steak, and caramel sushi. And you? 🐕
I would like it with a side of ladyfinger and rice thank you. It would be best if it was adaad curry flavoured. It would then at least be tasty.

The mods do monitor stuff (I think) but it is mostly author reports that point it out. With as many readers as there are on RR, the mods would go mad if they tried to keep track of everyone. If the 0.5 is from the chapter 1 or the first few chapters then you can report it. If it is a person on a spree then the mods usually remove it unless they have reason to believe that the rating is real. The chapter rating is only visible on premium though.
