How many darn ratings do you have to get before the DSR score rises? It sure didn't take but a few to make it low.
It's important to note that the larger the number of ratings you have, the longer it will take for you to impact your DSRs in a positive manner. For example, if a seller has 1,000 DSRs and a 4.3 DSR rating, it would take 170 5.0's, 1,000 4.5's, or 25,000 4.4's to bring the DSR up to a 4.4.
In other words, don't hold your breath.

And even them some. What's the difference between "Good" and "Very Good"?
What's the difference between "Accurate" and "Very Accurate"?
And what the hell does "Neither accurate nor inaccurate", "Neither quickly nor slowly", "Neither expensive nor inexpensive", mean?
You get the point.
If you don't start out with your star values up high, it may take you quite a while to raise them. Sellers who have thousands of star votes already are pretty much static where those ratings stand. It will take them forever to move them.
I have yet to find any explanation or math as to how quickly then can be lowered.
