I was unable to replicate it too, but maybe there can be an issue with an extra argument. I fixed it also for cases without it.

Issues 1 and 3 aren't replicable in build 1081, but issue 2 remains. i.e. the current rating functionality jumps UP from 0-stars to 3-stars / DOWN from 5-stars to 3 stars and appears broken to users. This was originally intended to reduce clicks, but it's actually really confusing and appears buggy.

Push to 2.0.1 if non-trivial.

Are you suggesting this button's behavior?
(Down[0]) Up[0] - Down does nothing, Up rates 1 star
Down[1] Up[1] - Down rates 0 star, Up rates 2 star
Down[2] Up[2] - Down rates 1 star, Up rates 3 star
Down[3] Up[3] - Down rates 2 star, Up rates 4 star
Down[4] Up[4] - Down rates 3 star, Up rates 5 star
Down[5] (Up[5]) - Down rates 0 star, Up does nothing

In this case, user have to click 5 times to rate a track by 5 starts. Is this wanted behavior?

I hope that 5 stars rating will be supported in the future, because it's already implemented in API which uses AA.

That's mostly it--except for the items indicated with an '*' below. With this approach, it takes an extra 2 clicks in some cases, but reduces clicks in others (5 stars to 4 stars; unrated to 1 star). Note, though, that 'cycling' further reduces clicks. i.e.

*[unrated] - _Down rates 5 star_, Up rates 1 star
[1] - Down rates unrated, Up rates 2 star
[2] - Down rates 1 star, Up rates 3 star
[3] - Down rates 2 star, Up rates 4 star
[4] - Down rates 3 star, Up rates 5 star
*[5] - Down rates 4 star, Up rates unrated

As to supporting .5 star ratings, that'd be great, but it would mean more clicks with the current UI. Perhaps the approach suggested at 0017825:0071787

Users are complaining about this issue as it's a regression. Triaged back to 2.0.

This is almost fixed in 1154. The one remaining issue is that when the user clicks the up arrow it goes:

...4, 5, 0, 0, 1
it should go
...4, 5, 0, 1
