Are We Getting Automatic 5 Stars Now From Riders?

Did Uber Pro finally give us a default 5 stars for riders who don't rate? In just a few hours a 1, 2, and 3 star rating fell off and I've increased 2 points. Is Uber trying to up all drivers to "Gold" and "Platinum" so they look better in the eyes of the riders...? Or did I just get a lucky slew of people who actually rate and magically had 3 back-to-back bad ratings way back when?

I don't really care about my ratings, per say exactly, I'm just curious because I've simply never seen my rating increase so rapidly before... ?‍♂

I hope so. I just hit 500 rated rides and I want the crap that I got the first week to disappear fast!

(hey, it's all bs, but still....)

Well, let's ask the question. Should we start caring???
Look at how many threads there are on here that say "I won't pick up any pax with a rating under 4.xx! " Isn't it reasonable to think that many pax feel the same about drivers, and are canceling rides from drivers with less than x scores?

Now, add all this gold/platinum/diamond rating to it. How long before they're canceling on any driver with a partner rating, or even gold? or platinum??? We may be forced into caring. ugh!

Another possibility is that drivers and pax are paired based on having the same rating, give or take a small margin. That'll have a bizarre impact.
It could be 5 star ratings knocking off 5 star ratings so no net change. I just knocked off another 2 star in only a few trips. ?‍♂
That's what's happening. I noticed it last night. Then, of course, I get dinged twice by some ^*() kids at UCLA. Drove a perfect night, no problems at all and they downrate me??? piss on them!
