In order to clarify the expection of what a resource is, the Scope has been introduced. The different Scopes of a resource are:

  1. Primer
  2. Fundamental
  3. Outline
  4. Detailed
  5. Comprehensive

Also a rating for a resource indicates how good or not previous downloaders thought the resource was: 0/5 means that no one has rated the resource 1/5 means a bad resource 5/5 means a good resource. Good or bad is a simple indicator and is not meant to qualify in what way the resource is good or bad.

The contributor may contact a downloader for qualitative feedback.
